June 10th pencilled in for me too. Gives me two and half months to get a car on the road again. Nice to have a target!

Hi
So is it a drive from Northants to the Lincolnshire wolds ? Having not owned a 480 until later last year I'm unsure.
Lincolnshire though is about a 200 mile drive south for me from Northumberland

Yes, we drive in convoy, stopping off along the way for refreshments and chats. I am hoping to organise a meet in Scotland in July, which starts in Stirling and ends just south of Aberdeen. Would that be any nearer for you ?

Hi

Well I'm in Northumberland, I guess you'd probably drive up either this way or the west side ( M6 )
My sister used to live in Aberdeen for many years.
Stirling is probably about 120 miles north of where I live in mid Northumberland, a lovely place to live but miles from everywhere.

Apologies for the delay on the schedule, just getting over a dose of covid despite all the needles.
