    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.

    We can meet at mason kings, the john deere tractor dealers, just after Exebridge if you like TWU.
    Sure, sounds good to me WW. I guess we're gonna have to figure out what time we're all planning on converging on Exford. Late enough to give those coming from afar time for the journey I reckon... Any thoughts?

    Gives us time to go to Tarr steps for coffee, then on to Minehead for chips and then Exford for the meet up and lunch

    As (probably) the youngest Fouex you are more than welcome.

    No need to ask so politely, of course you can in fact I would be slightly disappointed if you couldn't make it!

    that is my line of thinking, so over to you Mayfield07! I take it you will be heading down the M4.

    Two 'meet up on the way down' options spring to mind

    1. Foeux and I head to the Bath M4 junction, meet Mayfield07 ..... head to Gordano services on the M5 meet up with adeyren and ziplex and then head down to Bridgewater Services as suggested earlier. This will get some mileage out of the way in an 'easy' manner and by stopping at Gordano Mayfield will be able to take on much needed coffee! (not sure if the 'cafe' at the Bath junction is still running ...)

    2. Bath/Bristol attendees meet up and head over the Mendips to Bridgewater. Mayfield07 and adeyren would be more than welcome to join us but in my mind (strange place that it is) in their shoes boots I would prefer to crack the boring miles on the motorways.

    Timing is not an issue to me but perhaps those with more local/current knowledge of the proposed route(s) from Bridgewater services to Exford can give a time estimate (inc any stops') and the remainder of us can work back from that ......

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    According to Google maps using the route that I suggested, it should take just over one hour to get from J24 via Taunton to Exford. So let's allow one hour for this section though I don't think it will take quite so long, but better to allow more rather than less time.

    I will meet up with you at J24 Services so please let me have some idea of your arrival time when agreed. For me it's only three junctions down the M5 so shouldn't be late.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    I am really looking forward to this.

    Is it just bring bike and pocket money and camera?

    Cheers.

    Re: Blackbird West Country Meet Up

    Bike may be useful to bring along with money and camera. As usual i'll have my full mini tool kit, compressor and puncture outfit. Waterproofs well it is the UK so probably.

    And for my shameless teasing I will probably be the one needing to borrow your puncture kit...
