Anyone up for a convoy from the South West up to the National. Would want to get to Kettering at about 6ish on the Friday - would anyone be able to make that?

Proposed route:

M5/M4 to Swindon
A419 to A420
A420 to A415 to Abingdon (to pick Al up)
A34 to M40 / Weston on the Green shortcut
A43/45 to Wellingborough
A509 to Kettering

Actually, scratch the Abingdon bit, Al has the day off as do I!

So we could leave whenever on the Friday.

We may be heading up slightly later :lol: ..suspect leaving WSM may not be much before 5:30pm.........which is about an 8:00pm* strike on Kettering.

Guys assume not if you want to get there at a reasonable time, so sort out your timings, and route if we can hook up we certainly will :teeth: .

*unless we go M5/M42/M6...which appears to only be - if my memory serves me correctly - a 1:58 journey from WSM :doh: ..but I am getting old and my memory is fading :teeth:

I will also have to wait until about 6ish before I can leave due to work.

I have been the Kettering a few times recently and depending on how legal you stay journey should be about 2-2 1/2 hours.

I've got the Friday off - so can leave anytime, happy to meet up anywhere along the M5/M4 corridor. :wub:

M5/M42/M6 was the route we took last year - maybe longer distance but from this neck of the woods def the quickest providing there are no jams..... and my memory is worse than yours Jez - I'm older. :bose:

Anyone else going from the South West?
