I don't see 406 squadron being grounded by a gentle breeze and a few spots of rain.

The problem is that the site we were booked on is right on the coast and we really need the awning up for the dogs etc,i've had more than my fair share of sleepless nights with gales and the awning collapsing on one occasion,the winds they are forcasting where we were going are enough to upturn a caravan.

Weather warnings aren't while Monday. Even so the Met Office will put out a weather warning for owt -- I'm sure they just do it for fun when they're a bit bored on a slack day.

Now, dare I set off with less than half a tank of diesel? I would have in the 406 and not given it a second thought!

It is no fun mate I'd have to do the same so maybe us having to cancel is a good thing, it's forecast quite shite up until Wednesday and 40/50mph gusts while towing with buttocks clenched is not an ideal start to a holiday. :lol:

rwb, it don't look bad up that way in fairness i was checking the Merthyr forecast for tomorrow you should have a dry ish day.

You'll be most welcome if you manage to get along :D

I too have done the caravan thing in a storm with a resulting damaged awning :cry:

Hmm. 66 litres, probably good for about 600 miles typically?
10% more engine, 90% more horses and about 12% less fuel tank has to add up to a bit less range.

Which route are you taking, Rich?

Indeed one of my colleagues pointed out that I've swapped fuel efficiency for time efficiency.

Nearly twice as many horses and over two-thirds of the MPG does mean that it is more fuel efficient!

I'll be coming up the M5 (there's a really cheap Esso station on the A419 just north of Swindon).
Are you on the M6?

I'm aiming to get to the Newbridge for breakfast about 9:00 and Cosford around 10:00, (they're only about 15 mins apart).

Just calling in to confirm I shall not be attending this meet (have my kiddos) and I hope you all have a lovely time tomorrow, can't wait to see the photos of the meets, and as per Haynes, get a group photo.

Seems weird now that Jasper won't be bringing a 407 and will be bringing a 406, yet rwb is NOT bringing his 406 and bringing a 407 :lol: You guys like your happy medium don't ya :lol:

Wish you all the very very best :D

Have a good day chaps, I hope the weather is kind to you.

I am heading to Newquay tomorrow, me, the missus, 2 kids and the Mum-in-Law plus a roofbox - judging by the forecast I had better unplug my air-intake..... 8)

Maybe see you all at the next meet up.
