Thanks Andrew

Well based on the advice on the last leg route starting just before Darlington heading up to the camp site here's what I am suggesting from Norwich, so based on others coming up from the South East we can adapt this to include those people with another meeting point between point A and B...obvious Norwich as a waypoint ain't gonna work but this route is a starting point for a bigger one covering all the requirements off once we know what they are.


Click to open google maps


Point B is a services point which I figure would be a good place for people to join the convoy but we really need to know who is heading up from the south west and how far a route needs establishing from, then we can figure how to join the dots and build up a nice convoy properly

If we can use google for planning this it would be best, we can then take google routes through Tyre and create what is needed for peoples satnavs etc...

So.....speak up and lets get planning

I'm good to meet at point B I think.

I'm probably the only one from the GM going this year so unless I tag along with the TV guys I'm ridin solo.

Is there a good straight route suitable for car and trailer?
