Lead Car(s)

Post by toymr2 » 01/03/17 22:44

In a change from previous years I will only be leading the convoy on Thursday, and the section from Inverness to Perth on Monday. Therefore we are looking for volunteers to lead us on the remaining days. If you are willing to do this please note you will need to know the routes, be able to maintain a brisk pace, but also to keep the group together. I am happy to be a passenger in the lead car on Saturday and Sunday, and share the cost of fuel :)
If you are wanting to put your name down for this please pm me or Ann, thanks :)

I'm happy to give it a go, you've done it so many times for us Peter, only right to give a bit back, I know my way around pretty well and I've got a good head for direction.

I'll do some gpx files for the routes so I can follow them on my phone, I take it we aren't planning any late changes?

I'll have a read up on the route, but you'll have to fill me in on the stops, or we could we could be at Ullapool for dinnertime. lol.
