Weekend Wake-up, 17 Jan 2010

Recommended Posts

Ok, the worst of the weather seems to be pulling back for a few days and the forecast for Sunday 17th January 2010 looks to be good so I am going to stretch the old girl's legs with a morning run to Newland's Corner, near Guildford.

Should anyone wish to join me for a cuppa and maybe a bacon sarnie or whatever, I plan to arrive at the car park by 0900.

These are the coordinates, and nearest postcode I can find:

51.13.58N (51.2329)

0.30.20W (-0.5057)

GU4 8SE

Who's up for it?

I would Love to Sparky but will be starting to strip the manifold off so I will have to give it a miss, enjoy your run

Guess what? I'm up for that........ It will be nice to blow the cobwebs out of the machine!


In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.<br />

In practice, there is!

Sparky,

Can't wait to get the second meet for sleg under way for 2010. Given that next Wednesday will be the Ace Cafe meet that makes three meets and January is not over yet :). At this rate we will be able to retire at the middle of February having fulfilled the required three meets each P.A. No doubt I will be corrected on that :D.

Looking forward to getting the car running and fully up to temperature.

Trevor.

0900! There is only one 9 on a Sunday..surely? :D

Hmm well maybe I should show willing, and the bacon butty sounds wonderful but alas I'm currently without me ride.

Chris,

As a 100% London member you are entitled to the unique "Borrow A Sportscar" scheme run for those loyal enough to qualify. If you have insurance cover then you are welcome to use the Alpine on Sunday.

Battery on charge as I write.

Hehehe. The plan is simple - turn up at 0900, hot beverage, chinwag, take in the view (probably get wet, SLEG-style), home in time for early lunch & wenches. That's it! You know how refeshingly informal we are round these parts. :)

I'll try and bring my little plastic motor to mix it with you big Esprit boys - barely far enough from me to Newlands Corner to get the Liz properly warmed up! The car's filthy already so a bit more road crud will justify breaking out the jet wash after lunch rolleyes.gif

If i think i'll be road legal sunday morning when i go to bed saturday then i'll set an alarm!

With the 'big thaw' promised this will be the only chance i have to coat the whole underside of my car, wheels, disks etc with really salty water , but it's begging to be driven, and there is no Columbo sunday morning.

So, Felix, have you managed to throw yours back together? Or will you be shotgun in a Skedgelone 'family' rental?

Zoomable map here, quite good route thingy as you can click anywhere and it alters the route via that place. Don't all turn up and rob me now!

:)

Mappy

If i go to bed sober i'll set alarm, look outside and decide tomorrow.

Foggy up on the hills just now. Will take a view in the morning but more than likely will be there. MrsE might pop over with the kids for a bacon sarnie and a muddy walk too. Now if we hadn't postponed the Evora we'd have only had to bring one car .... :)
