    so the date is fast approaching and was wondering where abouts people are coming from and if there are any convoys heading to the pod from various locations in the uk

    id imagine there would be three main convoys, one from the london area, one from midlands/devon area and one from up north, so if people post up where they are coming from and which route they will be taking then we can get things sorted?

    im coming from worcester j6 of m5 and will be taking the m5, m42, m6 and m1 to northampton then A roads to the pod, if people want to tag along we can arrange a meeting place and time (m'way services is a good place to meet)

    Could meet up with you along the M42, which is where I'll be joining, depends on timing really.

    I'm coming from M4 (Wales) . I think myself and S4twiggy will be making our way up on the Sat 10 (middayish). We are booked into a hotel just 10min's drive from the pod. We will have to go easy on the drink as we will have tobe up early to wash the car's............... But saying that our other half's will be there, so they can help ( you missed a bit babe i be shouting from the hotel window) :laugh:

    where on the m42 do you get on matey? i havent really thought about a time to be honest, will be early though, think gates open at 0730-0800ish so would want to get there not long after that, running up the strip so want to get as many runs in as i can as early as poss so i can have a nose around later in the day

    OK, for anyone going along the M42 southbound to join the M6, we can all meet at the Tescos/Notcutts carpark off Jcn4(A3400) off the M42, lets say 7:30am? Can do 7am if you want to get to SantaPod earlier?

    It's not a show and shine, so any need to get there early to clean things up?

    I'm easy.

    We'll go with 0715 then lol, best not be any late comers, SantaPod is pretty straight forward I think, went there once ages ago, I'll double check before hand anyways.

    Anyone else joining us? sign up sign up. :)

    Sandip,

    Pretty sure we can find a suitable spot to meet up on the way to the Pod mate. What route would you take?, there's a big Tescos in Wellingborough I think it is about 10 minutes from the Pod, we could meet up there?
