    ok peoples so we have just over a week until this event now so i thought id start a convoy list for us all.
    i know there is a thread about this but its for the whole of the forum and has been overlooked a little, plus i believe it will be more efficiant to sub forums for this kinda thing.

    im not camping so will be traveling up on the day.

    i have a choice of two routes to take

    • M11 then A14 about 78 miles for me

    •A602 (stevenage) A1(M) then A14, less miles but takes longer

    im happy to meet anyone along either of these routes or just off (meeting point) so anyone guve me a shout and we can organise a nice slow cruise up there :)

    either would be good as we could arrange a meet at brampton hut then you could hook up with us east anglians on the way plus we leave allowin enough time for breakfast there anyway

    suffolk, sorry don't know the postcode but its where the a1 meets the a14 near huntingdon (a14 junction 21 i think) there is a large bp and mcdonalds on the roundabout or alternatively there is cambridge services just beyond where the m11 joins the a14

    Hey guys, I've just seen this and thinking about heading up for just Sunday, will ASN have it's own like area up there? Only I'll probably be heading up on my own, and I've never met anyone from here or anything, so don't wanna turn up and look like an idiot, lol.

    If I can make it, I'll be heading from Salisbury, don't suppose anyone's passing through in the morning that I could tag along with??

    Cheers, Tarq

    tag along with us mate, think we've got 3 in our convoy so far, i'm in bournemouth, so like somewhere on the m27 we could meet up? i'm assuming you're taking the m27, m3, m25, m1 route? or you doing the a34 route or whatever that road is?

    What sort of time you leaving Bournemouth? Fleet services are before I would join the m3 so depending on what time your passing J4 I'll hook up with you on the motorway :)

    To be honest, the A34 route is quite a bit quicker, I think! Surely it would be for you guys too? Hit up the M3 then drop off at Winchester?

    also do not forget to grab your free ASN wristband supplied at the ASN tent, this will allow you to have a free lunch on Admin who has put alot of money and time into this to give us an awsome time.

    a BIG thank you to Adam and his helpers for making this happen :) :) :)
