    Right, following on from the midlands convoy thread, I propose M6 Corley Services as a meeting point, it's between J3-4 off the M6, I'm guessing it's around 40 odd miles from there, so at a leisurely cruise at the speed limit, to keep the bugs off our cars, we should be at the venue within an hour?

    You are welcome to get there earlier of course, but I plan to leave @830 sharp!

    Anyone else up for it, please sign up! :)
