    need to think that one through ;)

    there's a few folks meeting us at Blackpool, anyone know Blackpool really well that can suggest a biggish meeting place for us all to wait for the rundfahrters and stragglers? :))

    From the campsite we'll be aiming to leave at about 6.30 ish (or there abouts), getting to Blackpool for about 7 (if the traffic is heavy) and then we'll trundle toward the tower, round and back again, need to get onto a route guide to see what's best.

    We're not going away this weekend now so we'll try to work it all out :thumbsup:

    We aren't going to get to Blackpool until some time after 7 I reckon. Sat nav says one hour from here but in the van that usually means about 1.15 :(
    Leave work at 5.30, then get away from home before 6, so Blackpool 7.15 hopefully.
