I'm working in London for a couple of days later in the month so could potentially get it upto Stafford, then might be able to get to Manchester a few days later?


What dates are you in London? I could bring it up one day after work if the dates work out.

I'm in London on the 23rd & 24th, 23rd is best as my meeting ends at 3, I'll be in Euston NW1 2AY, but to be honest might be best if I get the train down towards you somewhere so I don't have to get out of London by road, I've tried a few times in our van and it can be a right pain in the arse, where would be the nearest station to the M25 / M40 that would be convenient?

23rd is perfect, I've got the day off anyway (burning leave before the end of the year) so can meet you after 3. Driving in London is indeed a pain in the arse - would somewhere suburban around Walton on Thames or Twickenham ish work? Just picked those names off the map, open to suggestions.

If Aldo approves the plan of course!

Looking at Train routes East Croydon would probably be best for me.. train from St Pancras is only £6

I'll wait to hear from Aldo to see if we're good to go..

Great, East Croydon makes it dead easy for me to get home by train too.

Any update Aldo? Could do with booking my train ticket and need to know if I need a return? Cheers

Sorry for the slow reply, but I'm 99% sure I'm going to fly down this Saturday morning and drive it home, thanks for the offer though floatylight. I could do with a back up car as my daily is overdue a bit attention

I'm afraid I'd have to withdraw my offer to meet you at Gatwick on Saturday because I'm on call, so I need to be within 15 minutes of home. Work's a bugger, isn't it?

I could still meet you at Lewes railway station though, it's only 35 minutes on the train from Gatwick (then the same to drive back again) so wouldn't cost you too much extra time.

No problem, was looking forward to reminiscing about late nineties holidays driving my mates VSX across France.

Chodspeed!

CHALLENGE.

I am about to make my insane Scotsman hat trick.

DaveHedgehog31 flew to Gatwick and drove my Saab home to Glasgow overnight, two weeks after an MoT tester quoted £800 to make it better.

FabergéGreggs wanted to ride my moped as far as it's gone in the left decade, in one go, but it pissed itself in terror so he couldn't.

I'm going to let Aldo135 explain himself, quite frankly.

Meanwhile, amuse yourselves with the view I have from my desk at work.
