    Fords Run......

    Surely there must be one?

    I don't have a route, but otherwise would be happy to lead.

    I've just got no idea where they are.....

    Thought I had but can't find it
    Bill's the man but notoriously hard to get hold of at mo.

    Someone out there must have a route saved from a previous run

    Different question - does anyone want to go on one?

    You could ask TrevTuck, but I forgot he only made it through one Ford before he drowned 8-)

    Exclamation Might be able to get somthing to you later toady, sorry - today!

    I did a local TRF "Fords & Follies" run in 2008 which had about ten fords within hitting distance of Andover - but mainly north.

    I'll ask the organiser if he still has the locations and send it to you - but won't be until later today (Thursday).

    Any good?

    Thanks Martyn.

    I'll use that as a basis if we get any more interest.

    OK - it would appear that it would only be me and Chris, with Tom as a spectator.

    I'll therefore give this a miss for this year - sounds like I'm hearing the call of the plains
