Scotland did dinner type stuff at Carlisle so I am just home now. I suspect the other pair are still an hour or so away from Kilbirnie considering Rambo was driving out of Carlisle. They passed me while I was filling up at Todhills and I then got delayed waiting to pay due to a queue. I passed them like they weren't moving before Lockerbie.

Cheers Joe, looking at your route I'll drop off the pack around Grange then as I want to walk to the Bowder stone with Lucky.

We thought you'd dropped off as mentioned! We did stop at a pub briefly to regroup which might have caused further confusion.

I had speculated Justin and Rambo were about an hour from home in Kilbirnie when I arrived home in East Kilbride at 11pm. Turns out I was dead nuts on as Justin sent me a text to say he got home at midnight.

 

I was amoungst the first to arrive. Also, Ghosty has liberated, and is now custodian of, The Banner™
