    Just an idea guys,why not instead of listing junction numbers,list what services is the next one after your junction?Am thinking you can't always stop at a junction,but obviously you can at the services,even if we just drive through.Also,gives the chance for a pit stop if needed.

    Not a bad idea Tony.

    I think I got this right.
    Below is a list of junctions and the nearest services to that junction heading north.

    J30 - Moto Services
    J29 - J28 - Honiton
    J27 - tiverton
    J26 - Taunton deane
    J25 - J23 - Sedgemoor
    J22 - J19 - Gordano

    Then its M4 and we'll pretty much there.

    AudiMad, Want to meet in plymouth bout 06:00 and head up meeting up with people on the way?

    Tony, 07:00 at J27 services?

    Everyone else, we can swing past each service station and meet up with people on the way.

    Convoy

    Dead keen for a convoy.

    I'll be leaving from my old mans in Burnham-On-Sea so can meet at Gordano. This is also one of the last easy stops for V-power on the way to Combe.

    It's about 45-50 minutes to Combe from there if they haven't removed the 50mph restrictions due to roadworks.

    I'm thinking about a 10ish minute wait at each services listed.

    If any one want my mobile number to contact me, drop me a PM and I'll send it over.

    Also could you put some eta times for the services so we know what time to meet

    How about only stopping at services where we are meeting someone?
    Also could you put some eta times for the services so we know what time to meet

    I was going to leave mine at 05:30 and stop off at each service station where someone has put their name down.
    Then sit there for 10mins and wait for them to turn up.

    As for times at each service station, erm......what does google say? lol
    I'll put some proper times up later, I'm at my dad's at them moment.

    Give or take a couple of minutes for traffic and what not, that's the rough idea of times on the way to ADI.
