    Heh. I was going to be more specific but was considering security at the same time...

    I spent last week trying to soak up some calm inth'lakes (as locals will know, I mostly soaked-up rainwater), but noticed a house which appeared to be inhabited by someone very much with the Audi bug - and as one of the four-ringers parked outside was an 8P, I wondered if it might be any of our number.

    To be a little less vague about it: The Audi-nut in question is a couple of miles off a tourist-hammered section of the '591.

    As for Morecambe - My OS Explorer says not quite, but for the purposes of a meet, it sounds quite interesting. There's got to be a photo-opportunity along the front (perhaps up towards the statue/sculpture end) - although if we're going to organise something I'd ask that it's in enough time to conclude my overhaul of the car (which honestly is a little way out because I've a big pile of code for here needs sorting out before I start breaking stuff with spanners again).
