You buggers started all this whilst I was away in South America.  :^_^ :nono :cp Well I broke my leg  :nap just so that I could be at home and monitor this activity.  :icon_scratch:

Someone asked if we could go somewhere that's a bit warmer and sunnier this time. I did say at the Haggs Bank thing how easy it would be to have a meet in Northern Spain. You just turn up at Portsmouth and 30 hours later you're deposited in Santander with areas like the Picos de Europa to explore to the west and the whole of the Pyrenees to the east.

Don't worry H! We would have waited for you! :augie
Anyway, looks like we have arrangements for a UK meet in progress and this thread for those that might fancy doing something abroad as well! :icon_cool:

Judging from some of the comments time is a factor for those of us who are still amongst the rat race! :icon_cry: So I guess something around a week's duration would be the max for most mere mortals. (Subject to holidays being approved etc.  :icon_rolleyes:)

Sunny would be nice  :XXsunsmile but not necessarily a showstopper. Personally, it's scenery and the adventure itself that attracts me. :wheel
Seeing as you're laid up at the min, how'd you fancy coming up with a few suggestions and we'll see what the other guys say?  :^_^
All the best, Mat-tiger1. 👍

Well, north Spain is my suggestion. Yes it needs more time and I would envisage leaving one weekend and coming back the next, providing ferries run at the right time.
Failing that, I was in favour of Southern Ireland. I've never been there and the beer scene is getting better and beyond Guinness. :occasion14

I was going to suggest N Spain before the Cotswolds came up. It's on my 'list' :icon_rolleyes:
I'll definitely try to attend the 'main' meet. Another one..??

Nice to know Spud! :thumbsup If it doesn't come off for this year, it could be a topic for discussion for next year while we're down in the Cotswolds?  :icon_biggrin:
