Sat 5 Apr 2008: Southern Softy

Post by spokey » Mon Dec 03, 2007 1:40 pm

Just so that the Southerners don't feel unduly aggrieved by the Northern Romp, make a place in your diary for Saturday, 5 April 2008 for the Southern Softy. This will be a two-part cruise, with a breakfast run starting at the Brampton Hut services at the junction of the A1 and the A14 at a brisk and sprightly 07:30 :shock: and finishing off at the OK Diner near Tickencote on the A1. This is also where the second part of the cruise will start at 10:00 sharp!

The main cruise will stop at one of my favourite pubs for lunch and traverse some agreeable scenery with a stop at another pub along the way back to the place where the breakfast run started (A1/A14 junction) early enough to allow everyone to get home in good time for a roaring night out.

Except me, I'll be knackered. :lol:

Attending

Spokey - 2 or 3 (both)
matthewjkelly - main cruise

Maybe

I have had Kentish denizens on previous cruises in the area before... :wink:

Autoroute says it's 2:40 from Folkestone and Autoroute is always conservative. :D

I wasn't far off with 3 hours!!! It was just a guess :D

Perhaps the others were a bit more committed! :oops:

I'd love to have the day out, sounds like a blast. Unfortunately I'm travelling up to Scotland on this saturday for a holiday. If I got my arse in gear could do both :mrgreen: . Then again might be a little uncomfortable with the wifes hand gripping my knackers :shock: .

Looks like it's just you and me, matthewjkelly ... I might have to make the numbers up by inviting a few mates along. :D

Hi Spokey, I did my fair share on the northern romp which was great, but I can't make this one due to other commitments.

Indeed you did! :D
