    A huge :thankyou:must go to Paul, @pgunter for volunteering;) to organise another trip around the New Forest. The Mints had a terrible 3 hour drive down to the area on Saturday, as it poured with rain all the way. We met up with a few fellow forumites, @pgunter, @Alan Slade, @Nodzed, @mid life crisis, @Oldguysrule, @Lee and @Shortie_gal at the pub and had a great evening. Thanks Niall=)) After a (very) late night we were up early at the crack of 08:30 for a relaxed start and headed off to the meet point. We all had a fantastic drive around the New Forest finishing up at a lovely pub for Sunday lunch. The weather was outstanding, especially for a December day. Thanks to all for a superb weekend, we really enjoyed it. Great company, great cruise and great weather, what's not to like.
    Sorry, not many photos, these were at a stop in the Forest. IMG_01.jpg IMG_02.jpg IMG_03.jpg IMG_04.jpg IMG_05.jpg IMG_06.jpg IMG_07.jpg IMG_08.jpg IMG_09.jpg

    Yet another great weekend. @Mrs Mint you did well with the Saturday meal :whistle: a very lively evening. I was very happy that the Sunday was enjoyed by so many as the weather was just spot on for December.

    Hope everyone has a great Happy Christmas and here's to more fun in 2017 :beer:beer:beer

    Didn't do anything Steve. I cleaned the windscreen and windows before leaving the Premier Inn but didn't touch the paintwork. I was having the same discussion with Trevor (@Oldguysrule) as he had washed his Zed before the meetup at Ower and mine was cleaner than his. I can only think that as the rain we drove through on Saturday was so heavy it washed most of the mud off the road and the Zed benefitted:rolleyes:
