Northern convoy
They should be quite a few of us who live North of Birmingham.
What I know
Turbo5 & Bro-in-law
Mossy
Algreene & Brother
AMR79 & Davo
ps2Lord5 & Minty_typeR
Catz
seano & lecurie
mrdmferrett
daran & gf
anymore ?

Enough for a 9 car convoy if we can get the timings right on the Friday. Don't want to be waiting for hours at service stations though.
we just need to arrange meeting points on the way down.

I'd be up for a convoy but because I'm sooo far North it's going to be tricky to get my timing right. Traffic jam or/and roadworks and I could totally mess up timings.

However I'll see what you guys suggest. I might make it. :wink:

Oh I forgot about that, Villiage People's concert (All guest must wear YMCA costumes) :lol:
so 8 cars now.
You should have invited her on the tour for her birthday, now that would have been a real present

I'm hoping that we can agree to leave our usual place at 11 am - I had a run down to Silverstone last week and if things run reasonably right, we should hit Watford Gap around 12.45 - thats plenty of time for fueling for a 1pm departure - still should be in Dover well before 5.

Turbo 5 where's our first fuel stop in France, having just paid my corporation tax I don't want to gift Gordon more than I have to or are you wanting us to be topped off on leaving the ferry?

Going by previous tours, everyone max's out this side of the water, so we don't stop for a few hours. Think there might be one not long after we cross over, but not too sure (about 20%)

Anyway -it won't be Gordon's by then - he just gets to choose how to waste it

We could meet you at the Watford Gap services as we're travelling down the M1.

Could have a mini convoy with Matt from Mansfield if he's still coming.

Thinking of leaving about 11am on the Frday morning so should reach the servies about 12ish

Thats what I was thinking the M6 crew can meet the M1 crew at Watford Gap. The M6 crew can meet at Knutsford services

Hang for us boys at Watford Gap, I reckon the NW crew should be there about 45 minutes later. Hopefully before then we will have everyones numbers in our phones, so we can give you advance warning of the NW convoy arrival.

We need someone to get a vid of us all arriving at Dartford Tunnel :thumbup:

Hmmm 45 mins does seem like a long wait :wink: maybe push the time of leaving to 11:30 :smile:

Is there anyone else travelling the majority of the way down the M1?

Won't you be going over the bridge though?? as tunnel serves northbound and bridge southbound. Or have I just read that all wrong?

Too true, I don't often go that way round London (must be 15 years), normally I'm an M5/M40 guy.

Or did I mean on the way back?
