Ace day + Russia maps
Thanks Glynn
I hope to be back and, if so, will come along.

I am currently in Moscow for a few weeks but due to return to London a day or so earlier than the meet.

Apart for a few maps of OS or 'Carte Militaire' quality of a few non contentious areas, Russian road network is covered in a series of about 6 or 7 map booklets - or in one bound heavy book for about GBP23. Each booklet is far less than the cost of a pint (in UK anyway!) and they are quite reasonable for itinery planning, showing roads, towns, rails, tracks, even fuel and workshops in remoter parts. No contours and not always highly accurate or up to date though!

If anyone wants a map or more please PM me with your details and which region interests you and I will buy them, carry them back to London and bring them along for you to collect

Posters over on ADV are saying it'll be the usual suspects - Touratech, Metal Mule etc with stands but nothing beyond that.

The half dozen times I've been to the Ace before it's just been a case of turning up, grabbing a burger / pint, kicking a few tyres and passing the time with whoever you find. I'm happy with that but the Ace is only half an hour down the M40 for me. Those of you coming some distance might want a bit more but I've no idea who it would be down to.

Maybe HUBBers ought to work out some way of identifying themselves - wear a pink carnation, carry a copy of the Times, that sort of thing so we can put faces to names. I'll be there on the yellow CCM if my foot is out of plaster in time!

Grant Johnson 13 Jan 2009 18:35

We're working on more details right now - we - Grant and Susan - WILL be there. More as we know. :)

See you there!

Grant Johnson 14 Jan 2009 14:00

Austin Vince and Lois Pryce will be there! :clap:

Austin will do a talk on the Terra Circa ride with a NEW presentation that should be a lot of fun!

Lois will have her books, so this is a great chance to get a signed copy of the new paperback edition that will be released just in time for the event.

All times are GMT +1. The time now is 08:15.
