Thanks Ian and Jon, we thoroughly enjoyed our first run (even Jon's extra excursions). It was nice to meet you all and we look forward to the next one.

Thanks for a different run. Tesco  was very entertaining Jon. When we said a quick run in a circle and back to Tesco we where not serious.

Good venue for lunch

can we please keep off the badly potholed roads in future? I am sure shuan will echo this!

Unfortunately the state of East Lothian roads is an ongoing problem that is frequently commented on in the East Lothian Courier and other local publications.  In order to avoid potholed roads we would have to avoid East Lothian altogether and that would be a shame.

Thanks to Jon and Iain for organising yesterday,s run and a big thanks to Anne for her crystal clear directions through the two way radio's. Got the impression John S was pleased when he won the bottle of whisky in the raffle, thanks again to all who donated prizes.

Thanks guys, interesting day out.

I think though that roads like this go some way to answering the question posed last week on radio Scotland about why the number of 4x4's on the roads is growing faster than any other type of car.

It wasn't the 14 hours or the 384 mile round trip that put the damper on the day but the two wrecked alloys.

On average I cover 35 - 40 thousand business miles a year and thought I had seem my fair share of poor roads, would have to say that these are among the worst I've seen and this means that unless East Lothian spent some money on upgrades this will almost certainly be my first and last run through the East Lothian countyside.

Special thanks to John & Heather for their help trying to sort it out and making sure we got home ok.

Many thanks for yet another brilliant day with great people and fantastic cars. Looking forward to even more adventures in 2006.
PS Thank you John, in the 3 months I've owned the car I never noticed my number plate read "Slow Sucks", it's just brilliant so look out for the new plates I fitted today.

Thanks for a fab day out! Paul & I had a great time (and he won me a bottle of wine - yipee!) Will defo go back to East Fortune again and see the bits I missed!

Thanks for a really enjoyable run on Sunday. We thought that the scenery, and the route in general, really good.  Fantastic place for lunch, sorry we passed on the museum. The photographs of Concorde look impressive.  Hope to meet up again soon.

Les & Andrew.
