I will be heading down to donnigton, but not sure if I will do the trip in one go. Was thinking of heading down the east coast for a change.

I won't be going this year. Combination of a new job with much too much to do, and the later date this year clashing with school holidays.

I bet this year will be brilliant weather. Have fun.

Clemo's pledged then for the Curry, so he's getting down somehow.

Less than a week to go so better try and get something organised. Usually meet at abington services around 11:30 and travel down to meet some of the others at the egerton arms. Anyone interested?

Farran - I'm going down a very obscure way this time. Still to be formalised but I'm going to have a look at a Tibetan Budhhist monastery in Eskdalemuir as well as doing other business en-route. So I probably won't be at Killy or the Egerton Arms. See you at Melbourne ?

08:00 and it's pissing with rain in the Borders - looks like all the cleaning polishing will have been a total waste of time.

Sat. looks OK - Sun looks a washout
