I've changed my mind, I'll be driving up tonight, probably arriving around midnight. Had a bit of a week of it so I thought sod it, my plans tomorrow can be put to one side, I think it was a bit far fetched to cram so much into one weekend :roll:

Bringing the Activa. When it bothers to rise to attention! Takes about 2 minutes to rise, the lazy bugger... ;-)

Is there a convoy drive at some point?

I'd not bet on that Jim, Sunday doesn't look like its going to be a SUN-day when you play the BBC weather MAP :cry:
I'd take an Umbrella especially for around 13:00 hr's !

IIRC they could have been one or two Xantia's too :eye: spotted !

Someone may have taken photo's of them (Most went off for some mystery tour, oh sorry was it a convoy) so they missed my photo shoot !

EDIT ! I've just found this photo I took, it looks like there were more than two :-

XMX, what camera/lens did you use to take those photo's, it takes vignetting to a new level.
