Yeo although school holidays are easier for us to get someone to look after the girls any date should be doable with notice [emoji4]

Guys if your still thinking herefordshire/shropshire area and want the accomadation scoping out, let us know it's right in our back yard, I've lived in the south shropshire area for 35 years and know the area like the back of my hand. Lol and if you want some good driving roads both this side of the welsh border and in the welsh mountains I can point you in the right direction :th:

I think Vinny and the 2 Crew might have a good route or two in mind ;)

Thanks for offering to scope out potential accommodation though Justin :th:

Stripey I think you should chose whatever date suits you best as you are probably the most restricted with your time off and all of this was your idea

I'd pick a date, see how it goes down and go from there :th: happy to help you with organising if you want as I get plenty of down time at work :D
Thanks :) it's ridiculous. To get my birthday week off again next year I'm going to have to go in on my leave this year so I can book it a year in advance. Such a dumb, rubbish system.

Tony's mention of 26-29 February, I have that week already booked off. I'm happy with that weekend. It's far enough away from Xmas, and it's a bit further into the year to hopefully be marginally better weather yet the roads shouldn't be too busy with tourists etc. It is also far enough away from highland drive.

Appreciate offers of helping organise it. Let's set the date and then we can delegate roles.

If we are happy for that date, are we happy guys??

Let me start a list for people who want to come for that date, and then we can go about finding out the cost of the deposit. Obviously I understand we have a list of interested people already but this list is for people who are happy to 100% come on this date and pay their deposit. We do need to get the ball rolling :)

Bah! :annoyed:

Another one from the same trip. Nip across the border to Knighton, Presteigne, and then this 'figure of 8' - https://goo.gl/maps/FyAbaFJpvDt

As long as we can get the girls looked after (shouldn't be an issue) we're in.
