Right as the title says this is for those of you coming on Friday and coming via either the M42 (and the M5/M42) or the M6 then the M1. (Me, Tim, Iain & mini-Mofo, Rich&Ria B etc.)

I suggest we meet at Corley Services on the M6 (just after the M42/M6 junction) then possibly meet up at Watford Gap services on the M1 with everyone else coming from the North (or the Rugby end of the M6, ie. Kully,JJ, Chris & Tim, Mike etc.)

Not sure on the time yet though depends on what time we can get to Grendon Lakes and if any of you are still at work etc.

That sounds a good time, just before the mad Friday rush-hour begins :LOL: we should be able to get there at that time (well I will anyway as i'm off all Friday) should reach Grendon Lakes by about 5pm then.

I think Rich's plan is to get there early afternoon which means us being around Brum area about 12ish

We will be a two car convoy, not keen on multi car convoys as everybody has a different idea of the speed limit, also, I don't want the time constraints, I want to get in the car and drive to Grendan without hanging around at motorway services. We are hoping to set out quite early on friday to hopefully get there before dinnertime. I hate the M6 with a passion and the sooner I have passed through brum the better.

No worries mate, having been in STEWARTS convoys before, I know what you mean ;) (His Cruise control doesn't go below 120mph I think)
I have decided to not drive at the same speed as everyone else in convoys anyway, some people drive too slow :LOL:

Woo Hoo - I've got the day off on the Friday :)

Unfortunately Mini will be at school - I'll check his timetable and see if a bunk may be in order :devilish:

Unsure from the above if anyone is still meeting up for a convoy - Matt - are you still meeting up with anyone or would you be feeling that your wings had been clipped if you did :LOL:

He's good at doing disappearing acts isn't he??? lol..... I'm sure the school would spend hours searching for him and possibly send the Police out looking for him. Best just to say he has a dentist appointment or something??? LOL
