The plan: Obtain mid/early morning salty, pork goodness and talk nonsense, possibly go for a tootle.

We have a few weeks now to firm up (ahem).

Shall we make it the A68 place again?

But - lets 'ave your views...and get it sorted. :thumbs:

I don't expect the date to be changed to suit me. I suggested it in the first place after all. :rolleyes:

Bingo!

So, how early shall we set off....for me the earlier the better......quieter roads etc. Of course, we need to juxtapose with pork related cooking establishments.

I like the cafe on the a68 that panic recommended. Very nice people and food/coffee.

So, how shall we go about this then?

I was thinking meet up early (would 7:30am be alright)? Have a nice drive, culminating in bacon-refreshment. Looking at our group we have the Keith coming up from 'thallerton and possibly B**** coming up from Saltburn, then we have Panic and Mr Adds coming from oop north. Is it too Lazy to suggest Darlo as a meet for the southerners? Then catch up with the northern pie-mongers in West Auckland, p'raps?

This route gives us some bends and straight bits and brings us out slap bang next to a rinded-goodness-opportunity. What do we think?

W. Auckland (start)
Staindrop
Eggleston
Stanhope
Wolsingham
Hamsterley
Windmill
Toft Hill (Bacon)


I reckon meet 8am in W.Auckland and we're all home, tucked up in bed by 10-10:30am, no-one is the wiser (least of all us).

only real upgrade would be toft hill to eggleston via woodland and over the fell instead of via staindrop. Or via copley and go over Penny Hill and then eggleston. all roads will lead to B**** heaven so who cares :thumbs:
