Welsh Convoy

Postby Sir-Doris on Tue Apr 15, 2008 1:33 am

As the title suggests, is anyone living in Wales interested travelling up in a convoy, Im sure a central(ish) meeting point can be arranged if there is enough interest.
I also drink Port and I'm not ashamed to say it!

Helo S-D,

A couple of questions: What are you doing about the GWR? What day are you travelling up? Who is going with you? Are you staying overnight anywhere?

Myself and Reeco are just starting to discuss it. So wondered what you were doing.

Cheers,
Huw.

Just a thought but might be a better route to do Heads of the Valleys > Abergavenny > Ross on Wye > M50 > M5 > Worcester, Solihull, Coventry, arriving at Rockingham in Northampton

Hi!
Late starter to this, but I'm heading up on Saturday and planning on the Heads of the Valley, M50 option. Tempted to cut across country from there to avoid the M42 and hve a nice drive rather than motorway all the way. Done this in the past and the time lost on A-Roads is made up in the shorter distance, so journey time isn'# much different.

Anyone up for meeting on the Saturday say in the carpark of McDonalds/Total petrol station just off the M4 J43?
