    "thee dilema" gathering/weekend?

    ok

    here is the dilema...

    living in the North West of Engerland... i want to go to both the "gathering of the clans in Scotlandshire

    and am deffo going to the "Wee-kend" darn sarf on me old 80g/s mono!

    they are as far apart at either end of the country as is humanly possible,

    but i live slap in the middle of the two events

    trouble is its only 3 days ride max between the two (as slow as a slow thing)







    i need to waste a good few days to get from "North" ta "Sooth"

    without ending up at my house for a couple of days




    done all that round the coast stuff 5 years ago......



    i am all ears??


    hm

    You could get a boat from Wales into S. Ireland then ride up to the north of Ireland and get another boat from Larne to Troon. A bit different and expensive maybe


    Geography is not my strong point

    I'd love to do both but I've been told in no uncertain terms I can't.
    So unless circumstances change in the interim, it's Wee-kend for me.

    Had you thought about planning a route that is as much off road as possible? Then 3 days would probably not be enough!

    I've been toying with trying a lejog style "as much off road trip" for charity.. it just time/work that always gets in the way!

    You are welcome to turn up here early and do some off-roading around Dartmoor/Exmoor.

    You'll be missed.





    It's difficult to aim accurately at a target 680 miles away.
