    Well had a great day today and good to meet the new and old members (Moz you know which one you are :p). Mixed weather with moments of sunshine and Pingu leading us on a magical mystery tour.

    Here's to the next one.:D

    Had a great time today driving in the Peak District, not always on the same cruise as everybody else, but hey ho it made for an interesting time. Really enjoyed meeting old and new forum members so thanks to Bill & Mozza for organizing a great trip.

    Roll on the next one - oh that's next week on the West Country Cruise II:)

    Good day overall. The weather was kinder than what was forecast, so at least we got quite a bit of top down motoring.

    It's a pitfall of going self employed, sudden shortage of regular income making days out like this a luxury.

    As it stands I'm still down for WCCII.

    Thank you for letting me come in the plastic pig, not a bad day considering I started it with a broken steering rack, semi functional ABS and a leaky rad (ABS is now totally dead).

    I haven't been on a zed cruise for a while, I really enjoyed the banter (mostly Bill and Moz arguing). :scorecard:

    Thankfully the weather held out for most of the day so even got the roof off for a bit. It was a great day out, lets get a Welsh cruise on the go! :racecar:

    Hi

    Great day out down the back lanes of Derbyshire - many thanks to Maurice and Bill for arranging it. Met some great people and hope to meet them again.

    As I was the last car when we set off from Ripley with the "special" walkie talkie (thanks Maurice) it all seemed to go mams up at the first roundabout. Hey ho we picked up a little convoy in Bakewell and set off to Hope and the FANTASTIC loop up Winnats and down the Edale valley and back to Hope for a brew.

    Over Snake to Glossop was a steady pace with the normal Sunday drivers (non Z3) out in force but a good lunch and a quick peek at Deano's LS3 powered Z was worth traveling for.
    After lunch it all seemed to hang together until Chapel and then Maurice turned left and all others turned right!! at Sparrow pit the lead Z stopped and said" dont follow me, I'm on my way home to Chesterfield". Double testicles - spirited drive over to Longnor for a brew.

    Leaving Longnor, Maurice new exactly where he was going to Whetton - nice place Whetton but no tunnel there, plenty of sh*t on the roads, mud and potholes but no tunnel.
    Rev limiter wanted to get to a garden centre for some stuff so peeled off back to Steel city.

    A great day out with great folks.

    Richard and Janet - Black Z3M - Snowmole

    if you need any help with run outs, we'd like to help as done many in the past.
