Southern/South East convoy to Mad March Weekender

Postby BadBoy on Sat Mar 05, 2011 9:33 am

Looking at the list we have at least 5 of us (Me, Tom, Swini, Rospicer, and Bobbins) that could be travelling up the M1 & M6 to Birmingham.

Was thinking about meeting up at Toddington Services.
I reckon I'd be at Toddington somewhere around 10.30-11, with and estimate arrival on site at 3pm. That would give about 2 hours daylight for setting up camp?

Would anyone be interested?

Just north of Luton you can Google it

Ok.
I have PM'd you both my mobile number, and if you have a cb I will have mine on channel 10 (for later use to contact postfinder if we need to).

Toddington services are between J11 and J12 on the M1 http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&sourc ... 84543&z=14

As I'm towing I will be parked on the caravan parking and provided the traffic is normal, I'll be there between 10.30 and 10.45.

I'm only intending this to be a quick stop (food and toilet :lol: ) so if you can aim to be there at this time too that would be great. If you're running a little late then you have my number. Call me and we can look at waiting.
Likewise we can PM each other our numbers it will help also.


See ya all on Friday

Paul

As you go past the RAC Centre (M6 J9) give me a wave :D

What time to you think you'll be passing ? I might join you (Unless I get up leave early in order to grab a good pitch)

I'd guess we'll be passing around 12.15-12.30.
Can't see any reason we can't stop if that sort of time's ok for you.

Looks ok to me if everyone else is ok with that.
Rob's V6 will probably need filling up again by the time we get there anyway :lol:

I've PM'd you my number. If you can do the same I'll call you on Friday when we have a better ETA
