Somewhere near point B on either map I posted (post 2 / post 17) would not put either of us out of our way assuming we can get the timing right, but I am not sure on services around that way...alternatively we could meet somewhere closer to home, say Thetford...when I have more time at the weekend I'll do a little digging unless you can make any suggestions for places?

somewhere like thetford sounds good,its closer to home and i stand a chance of finding it,if you sort a time and a location at or around thetford,dont know what way you will be coming from,one landmark out that way that springs to mind is the pub,the norton dog,but what ever works for us both,

Good man, I'll try and figure out where in Peterborough at the weekend, might make more sense for us all to meet there to be honest...

@Paul, you okay meeting in Peterborough instead? Is there a McD's etc next to a petrol station anywhere do you know? I'll do some digging in a few days anyway...

That makes two of us

Just had a good look and I think we would be better meeting somewhere like Wisbech, we'll get onto the A1 via the A17 from there, it's less of a detour for me and for you too. There's a Petrol station and a Morrisons supermarket on the A1101 so if we want to get some bits before heading on up north we can, here's the map link

My A1 based route so far: linky

Point C is the Wisbech meet I'm suggesting, point D the McD's and petrol stop to meet others heading north

Open to suggestions though

Martin, you prefer a more direct route like this considering your knee? I've discounted the other twistier route on the basis that it would be just about okay if I were on my mine not having to consider others (maybe...) but it's a lot more to do (2 hours more) and we have a long weekend ahead of it...

btw, maybe heading up on the SM-T yet....need to get a quote to extend my annual mileage on the rocket, done much more miles than I anticipated and I figure they'll royally screw me on adding some more as I get a good deal on the initial policy...
