Eastern region convoy (plus option to meet Southerners)

Post by the edmundator » Sat Jul 04, 2015 11:52 pm

People from the East, if you're interested in joining-up en-route, let's plan the convoy here.

It looks like for me it would be convenient to meet up on the A14 somewhere near Kettering. I'd suggest the Little Chef services between junctions 9 and 8 westbound. Apparently this is one of the branches that had a revamp when Heston Blumenthal tried to improve their fortunes.

We'd need to meet at around 07:30 to get to Welcome Break, Telford (M54) for the planned 09:00 rendez-vous.

We could also meet with people coming from the south (planning on M1/M6) at Corley services, which is the first one on the M6 westbound after the M1/M6/A14 meeting.

I reckon we'd be here around 08:00.

Expressions of interest or alternative suggestions welcome.

N.B. Timings based on strict adherence to maximum allowable speed limit (i.e. mostly 70mph).

I'll meet up with you... I was hoping something was going to happen from our direction.

Is this plan still happening?

Just wondering as there hasn't been much activity on this thread.

I think if it's just the three of us, probably easiest to meet at Corley on the M6 (still around 8am).
