I think it is gonna be easier and better to sort one large convoy going M1 that trying to syncronise 2...spoke to Badboy and he is cool with bringing the Essex mob the m1 route instead of the M11.
Andytats are you cool with diving down the m11 the short distance from Harlow to meet us at South Mimms Services?
Hipo..have looked at the maps and for you to cut across to the m1 is gonna be as far as for you to get there, unless you know somewhere you wanna meet us after the M1 leg...


We want to really limit the amount of stops, as I know what you lot (and me) are like...and each one will turn into 20 mins chin wagging about trucks and we wont end up getting their till sunday!!! :lol:

So hows this for a plan to keep it simples??

Kent Foggers...
Meet at services just before Dartford tunnel at 10.30 to leave by 10.45

Essex foggers...
meet Kent foggers at South mimms services on the m25 at 11.30 to leave by 11.45

Kent and Essex foggers...
meet Jim and the Southern convoy at Toddington services on the M1 for 12.30pm


I would ask that members who want to travel in convoy to the above meet points, at the times above, arrange that between themselves locally...so I will liase with Kel, Ste, and Paul (mapracing) and anyone else from down ere, and Paul Badboy will be the liason for the Essex massive...


If I have messed up on the times above and havent allowed enough time for any leg, let me know and i will amend this post so we all know what we are doing...
Need to get this sorted in the next couple of days so everyone is clear, as will be rebuilding the 2.8 most of next week :shock:

also...Jeoh...I will pm you my mobile number, if you give me a ring when you hit the uk I will give you an update on the state of the M1 route as we will be couple of hours ahead of you...that way you can make an informed decision on whether to go M11 (the unknown) or the M1 if it helps..
:wink:
Check out the index thread below where pics/reviews from all our past meets can be found!!!!
click here for the SE Events Index/links Thread...see all the reviews and whats coming up soon!

Looks like I'm in trouble with the Mrs's again...
She asked me what I'd most like to do to her body...
Apparently "Identify it" is not the correct answer!

that's fine mate, I'll aim for around 1..that'll give me time to get something to eat and drink along the way. just keep your ears on just in case i fail..

Out of interest, does any one know what the earliest we are allowed on site is?
