    I've only seen this Fred after posting on the travel distance thread, and don't know how to move it. Livers and I met up in Bury St Edmund last year, and formed the Suffolk massiv all by ourselves.

    So for us, sofar it's Flatlander and Mrs. Fl

    Well I'm just in Thurrock area so depending on who's coming from Kent we could meet at Thurrock services then onwards and upwards meeting up as we travel ?

    Thurrock sounds good to me , where abouts as im trying to remember

    is this the one ?

    http://motorwayservicesonline.co.uk/Thurrock

    maybe if we list our names down and where we will be on route can then stop of at the pre determined places

    can put times down as well , lol or an email , mobile to a member so we can give them a call on route so they can stay indoors and can contact them and say will be at this place in ten minutes ??? but would have to do it via pm etc so mobile number and emails arnt public

    wonder if the series and fenders will be able to keep up with the hippos, lol

    unless somone else has better ideas

    so it's

    gstuart & son in a black freelander meet at Thurrock services

    Ha! Last year Livers informed me that I had done over 80 when overtaking a truck.


    Mind you, the noise and vibration definitely kept me alert.

    Haven't discussed with Livers yet, but we will probably be joining just north of Cambridge, on the A14 before it becomes the A1. I have a white 90.

    Yeo that's the services as you come out of tunnel keep left take exit and do a right at roundabout.

    My defender will keep up at 70 but the disco will do it with ease.

    We could start a bet for 1st breakdown bet it will be a Freelander.

    good question

    hasnt really come up to be honest ,

    I have to take medication in the morning and takes a while to kick in

    but wouldnt wish to hold anyone up

    if we for example take 4 hours to get there with the stop offs and picking people up along the way imagine we would have to set off by midday

    as including myself got to put a tent up , imagine we would like to get there around 4 pm so we can make a day of it getting there, lol

    unless people want to leave earlier ,

    im happy to go with what everyone else wishes to do, if they want to leave at 10 am that's fine with me also

    will be the start of a good laugh

    I normally sit on the motorway around 65 mph

    what does people think the time we should leave,

    got the CB, aerial, swr meter

    when I gutted the interior out i laid a new premade CB aerial lead under the side carpet trim away from other wires as I thought just in case I got interference from them ,one end is behind the panel at the back and the other end behind the centre console

    got to sort out a power supply for the CB, expect i will try and get a wire from the battery to the centre console, got a nice place in the bulkhead to pass wires though as I know it can't come off a cig lighter

    never installed a CB in a car before , only ever used handheld ones and that was a few years ago
