    Ah getting excited now, only a few days before I leave

    I'm going to leave around 10.00, and although Google maps thinks its just 4hrs 46mins, I will stop every 1.5 - 2 hours, meaning I'll probably be down there about 4 or 5pm, relaxed and alive

    I'll remember and do those videos

    A half hour supermarket trip compressed into 10 minutes.. it's pretty much down to having a bike and some awesome balancing skills!

    It's arrival from 3pm apart from any early arrivals according to Dave's post with the schedule on, that's about the time I am aiming for.

    As I have told Dave, work is in the way...
    Plus it would be me being away 3 out of 4 weekends and my Dad 4 out of 5.
    So looks as though you will have to not put but with me ;D
