Thumbs up

Hi everyone!

Well I believe that I'm all sorted for next weekend as I've just had an email from Darren saying that he has dropped a tent off at Hein Gericke for me to borrow... Yippee!

Just need to get everything in my top box... could be interesting!!!!! Plus I'll be coming straight from work so I need to get my work stuff down to a mininum...

I should be at Stirling Services at approx 4:30pm if I find my way ok!?! I'm on a grey SV650 reg. SN08 ***. Just had a new exhaust put on so it now sounds lovelly!!!! Looks good too!

Looking forward to meeting everyone and to a fun weekend,

Beej

P.S.
Is someone keeping mobile numbers incase we miss each other at the meeting points?

Unfortunately this seems it isnt a C90 friendly expedition....
Due to a top speed of 48mph, i would hold you all up

However, free teas + coffees in Dundee for anyone thats coming through this way...

Your welcome

Matthew

Hi there,

Where did you find this out from?
I have looked at the Cal Mac website and it says that the summer timetable runs until the 18th October. Has this changed?

Thanks for the heads up. I guess we should look into this as it might cause problems!

Matt

PS- On an up note, the weather forecast fro the weekend is looking quite good (yes, I know, it's Scotland, and three days is a long time in Scotlands weather systems!)

I never thought of that, but its a good point: the Mallaig/Armadale ferry is quite a wee thing from memory!

Stayed at Gorten Sands last weekend, there may be fewer midgies around but the ones that are left are determined to make up for it!! Road to Arisaig is a bit of a mess, the one-way traffic lights they have up for miles don't seem to apply to site traffic, so be prepared to dive into a gravel-filled ditch to avoid trucks & telehandlers coming the other way when you've got a green light!!

Should have asked them if I could leave my tent pitched really
