Usual format, meet for Breakfast then a run out somewhere for the day. It'll probably include Lake Vyrnwy and maybe the Evil Triangle again but I'm happy to go elsewhere if it's more convenient for others.

 

Let me know if you want to come along. It'll be cold, you may get wet and you'll need to wash the car afterwards - if this bothers you, maybe give it a miss.


Warks, Worcs, W Mids area meet. Last Wednesday of the month 7PM onwards, January to November. Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL

Entrance to pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island.

The good news is I haven't yet washed the car since the last run out, so no worries about getting it dirty, the bad news is I can't make the 12th as it's Ruby's 10th birthday. Gutted, those routes are ace!

Identified a fault with my alternator and can't get the spare to work either (maybe same fault). Not going anywhere :(

This should still be on, Thrashed and Martin and Karen have expressed an interest and we'll make a final decision late tomorrow afternoon. If anyone wants to join us, we should be meeting at 0900 Sunday at the Malt Shovel for Breakfast before heading off (or just come for breakfast).

 

Check this thread tomorrow evening for final details or give me a shout.

Just back from another great run out thanks Richy & Thrashed. Richy you were not wrong cool wet & very dirty.
Don’t know how an OAP will find time to clean the car.

Just cleaned mine before putting it away. We certainly had a mix of weather throughout the 275 miles we did today.

Well as expected the weather was mixed. some drizzle on the M6 and heavy rain and hail in Telford but we pressed on towards Lake Vyrnwy for a lunch stop. The roads were mostly slippery with lots of leaves so we were taking things steady. 

 

After lunch we headed up toward Bala and then on to the Horseshoe pass on the way back home. The afternoon weather picked up and the roads were beginning to dry out so the journey back was probably better than the one there. Covered a few miles and it was good to get out despite the mixed weather.

 

Here's a few photos.
