Leaving Lymm Services M6 Southbound (Popular Truck Stop) @ 11:00

Arriving at Newport Pagnell M1 Southbound @ 13:00

Leaving Newport Pagnell M1 Southbound @13:20 (Once Sean and Chris have caught up and everybody has refueled)

We should arrive at the hotel at around 15:00 - 15:30.

Cheers

Mark

Is the Newport Pagnell meet up point the only one on the M1? I thought that we were meeting at Watford Gap

Does the route to Dover take us down the M2?

If so there is a Shell Garage just off the bottom of the M2 on Canterbury Road, Can't seem to find one in Dover itself

We decided to change it from Watford Gap to Newport Pagnell so we can fill up at the Shell station as Watford Gap is BP.

I wasn't able to find a Shell in Dover either but yes the route that Autoroute gave me goes down the M2.

Are you ok to meet at Newport Pagnell?

Have no problems meeting at Newport Pagnell - I've got to travel the majority of the way down the M1 anyway.

Looking at Autoroute i'll still be leaving at the same time anyway.

Not long to go now :WOOT

I was talking to a kind HETer last night. He wasn't sure when he should begin boiling an enormous pan of porridge oats for his distinguished B&B guest from North of the Border. I told him that I thought you were more of a vodka/redbull and 3 Rothmans for breakfast sort of person.
