Those sharp zig zags as traffic calming measures look a bit on the tight side though. Do you think I will get my Land Rover around them OK??

I think we will treat that comment with the contempt it deserves.

How far long do you recon it is?? With time allowed for a decent Brekky of course??

I5-20 mins drive through Saturday morning traffic, breakfast is up to you.

Thanks again Bob.

For those that have applied to STACK to get into their insurance, I spoke to Matthew at Stack today. He has the applications, and hopes to process them tomorrow. He is also going to email Bob with a list of those of us who have applied so that we can be sure that we are covered for next weekend.

Now all we have to do is hope for an improvement in the weather!

As promised a map for the Hocklifffe guys. I have not included any eateries as I figured that you have a Happy Eater attached to your hotel. However I have included enough detail on this map to allow you to match it up to the Luton map in case you wanted to go further afield in search of sustenance.

Though the most direct route to the Downs is through Dunstable I would recommend you take my route through Tottenhoe to avoid Saturday morning traffic. On my route I would estimate 10-15mins journey time.

Have a safe journey one and all

See you all Saturday Morning

Just had a quick check of my hotel booking. I went for the Luton traveloge as the prices were rising on the Hockliffe one at the time. I appear to have bought breakfast at the hotel (In the bar cafe it appears). Still I suppose that doesn't stop me having a second breakfast, but I thought I would mention in just in case any of the Luton crowd would prefer not to call into a supermarket or whatever.

Anyway, it also appears I booked in for Friday night. I am not sure what time I will arrive, but if anyone else happens to be there, and by coincidence is sat in the bar, and happens to see a tall (6'4''), slightly greying, confused looking gent probably in jeans and cowboy boots, then they will know who it is! If they were feeling sociable they could even ask him to buy them a beer.

I got some Sedgwicks, I got some Sedgwicks, I got some Sedgwicks, eeeee IIIII adio I got some Sedgwicks. Do I sound happy enough?????

As far as Luton is concerned look out for a balding, greying, fat-ish sad lonely old chap with a silly hat, no maybe not the silly hat. And good news about Brekky in the TL, as long as it is a PROPER Brekkie.

Hopefully see you, amongst others I expect on Friday night then Jeremy

Okay, apologies Hockliffe guys.

I am told I have directed you a long way round to avoid the Saturday morning traffic the word document below gives directions for a more direct route, I knew it existed but I didnít know it well enough to describe it but I am reliably informed that it is not as complicated as I thought so here goes. Safe journey one and all.

For seven quid, it'd better be (I've booked it an' all) or that Blast upright'll be getting another workout! Ha ha!

Pleased to say it does look like a perfectly acceptable repast. I particularly like that phrase "All you can eat":

https://www.travelodge.co.uk/bar_cafe/

I am less keen on the rather wet weather forecast however. Sounds like a weekend for oilskins.

On a more serious note.

I need to buy some Black Dacron type thread to do a repair (and maybe even make a kite) if anyone has some spare that I might buy off them that would be fantastic.

Thanks, Chris.

I have about 1000 x 50mm sticky back spinaker tape (light weight ripstop dacron) in black. Any good to you? Would like to keep some, say 50cm. Will put to bring up at the weekend

I would suggest you contact the guys from Kiteworld they are coming, if they have any I'm sure they will bring some.
