Here is my suggestion for a cruise to take place on either Saturday or Sunday of the very first weekend of March 2008. My preference is for the Saturday, because it gives everyone the chance to recover on the Sunday. :D



The cruise will start from the Travelodge just off J40 of the M6 at 09:00 sharp and head off for breakfast at a nearby tea room at about 09:30. This will be followed by a gentle drive to Bowlees where we will (weather permitting) get out and stroll over to the Low Force waterfalls.

This will be followed by a drive criss-crossing the Yorkshire Dales with lunch at the (point 16 on the map).

After lunch, we will drive to either Hawes or Ingleton for a Yorkshire high tea and then head off to the end point, just off J36 of the M6. The end of the cruise will be at about 17:00, although times are subject to confirmation.

Please vote for Saturday or Sunday and make a note of your name in the thread, and also how many people you would have in your car. :wink:

tminal - 1

Saturday for me at the moment as it is a 3.5 hour drive for me from Solihull to start with so might try and organise something so that I am up in Liverpool on the Friday 29th February and drive up to Penrith on the Friday night and stay over ready for the morning!

On my original thread it appears that everyone that is interested is from the North anyhow, looks a good route though! Have you done this route before Spokey?

I guess it will put most people off from down south! :roll:

I voted Sat but would be equally happy to go Sun. Living not so far away from most of the route, it's somewhere we often go anyway.

For those wanting a blast about, if the weather's more than half decent. this route will be very, very busy - with tourists. Little chance to safely stretch the legs...

Cheers

Parts of it, not all as one drive.

That's why my routes are subject to change.

(Another reason my routes are subject to change is that the police now read websites like this and use the information they glean to sit along our routes, hoping to catch us speeding... :roll: )

Well, as I've said, I live in the area and travel it all the time. If you want/need any advice, please ask - and I'm trying to be helpful, not score points.

Cheers

Well if everyone is up for the Sat, then that's okay with me.

Right, it looks 99.9% certain that I will be in Liverpool on Friday 29th so I will be driving up on the Friday night and staying over somewhere in preparation for the meet on the Saturday morning.

Spokey, can you change me from a 'maybe' to an 'Attending' in the original post - cheers :thumbs:
