Good call John

I am still to get something sorted for accomdation but i would imagine i will be joining you guys on the M5,

As a slight thread divert, if anyone is travelling up from the west country and wants to meet up please let me know

Also keep an eye out for a thread from Happy Man regarding convoys to NAD slightly closer to the time

i've got myself and my family a place to stay for the night, just down the road from Ripon

John was talking about getting together on the evening for a bit to eat, so whose up for it and do you know where you will be staying, i'll try and get some suggestions that are as central as possible

if tess and mitogirl dont mind as i seem to be taking over there great idea!!!!! and i dont want to unset anyone. i could set up a few meets at defferent service stations along the way once i have worked out a route as in see if the sat nav says go the same route as the aa route planner but the journey may take a little longer so would need a go ahead from tess and mitogirl before i plan out a route and stops and ruff times and so on

Go for it John, you're doin a great job Prob best if we leave it to 1 person to plan, could get confusing with too much input

Think Tess is right it seems to be a blokey type thing

Okies John, can you programme me in somewhere.
I'll be travelling up from Cheltenham J11 so anywhere north will be dandy. ie Strensham.
Cheers.
