Unless you're travelling in the middle of the day (1100hrs - 1500hrs) there is plenty of potential for hold-ups.

avoid at all costs on a Friday!

having said all that, it can be fine........

just the luck of the draw
There's also speed cameras.

It goes slow as its one of those stupid roads which can't make its mind up whether its a by-pass or not ... switching between double and single lanes.

I'd suggest the m4 and then cut off after Swindon at some point might be an option from the east side of the country :)

Thanks guys.
We're coming from so far away that changing routes means only 20 minutes difference so we'll go East to Peterbourgh and down through Birmingham, etc, etc, on the M5.

Thanks!!!
:D
Peterborough to Brum on the A14? :shock: good luck there mate!!

only (slightly) joking......

Cool, looks like my lift is sorted... Now, anyone got any tent space to save me lugging mine on the train?

Now all you need is to ask Feldberg to throw your discs and you're away

:lol:

If you had the choice; Feldberg or Piippo? :)

On a more interesting note ... who do you think will win?

I want to see how the top players enjoy holes such as Badgers Hotel :twisted:

I can confirm that the PDF booklet's pars match the information which Charlie originally sent me. Whether they were incorrect to start with I don't know!

James andy and jester currently leading the farm hand challenge (James is winning) closely followed by john m and jed.
HOWEVER.... Can anyone bring us a base for a basket as we need it for the fox's earth basket. Looking forward to seeing y'all.
Beer is settling nicely for your arrival and the lamb roast is set for Friday night.

Love from James :)

I'll bring a basket base, hopefully it will fit.

I lost my phone last week:-( and now have a replacement sim card, but does anybody have a spare phone which can be used with O2, and which they could lend me until I can get the i-phone 4?
