I know that for the next few weeks the thought of travelling in the south west will fill most people (and rightly so) with dread but, I was wondering if anyone fancied something in September when the roads are slightly better?

I know Haynes was done last time so even something low key, maybe just a meet up and a coffee and breakfast one weekend?

Everywhere is north for me!
The S is mot’d again so looking for a trip away in it.
Does anyone fancy a meet up at Haynes or, somewhere similar distance-wise?

Just thought I’d bump this up.
Anyone in the south west fancy a meet up? The year’s disappearing quickly....

Apart from you, not sure if there is anyone more South West than me?

Maybe if we pushed east a little, we could tempt a few others?
There’s Haynes and didn’t someone suggest an air museum or something similar, last time?

Penzance is an awful long way from Cardiff for a one day meet but I've previously done the Haynes Museum and would be happy to meet anywhere between here and there!

Ok. I’ll have a look at a couple of dates for a Haynes run and see what happens.....

Lympsham is more south west than Weston-super-Mare!
