    I have put together a route for a Zed cruise on Sunday 15th April.

    The route is here --- http://tiny.cc/cxu0aw

    Start point is Little Chef on the A21 just south of Lamberhurst. Post code is roughly TN5 7QA. After driving on the short Lamberhurst by-pass the Little Chef is approx. 2 miles on the left.

    We will have a coffee break at Dungeness.

    End point here --- TN15 OHB http://www.greatbritishcarvery.co.uk/ou ... -point-inn For lunch.

    We meet at 9.00am and depart at 9.30am.

    Anyone interested please post below. I will have to book a table for lunch at the pub so please indicate if you wish to reserve and for how many people.

    Ragtop Ron & Gail + Lunch x 2
    Zedona Larry & Penny + Lunch x 2
    z3steve Steve & Helen? + Lunch x 1?
    Country Boy Nigel & Sue + Lunch x 2
    Hotred Tim & Pauline + Lunch x 2
    Bowei001 Ian & Sue + Lunch x 2
    Burrie Dave & Sue + Lunch x 2
    peteslag Pete & friend + Lunch x 2
    GazHyde Gary + 1 + Lunch x 2

    Maybe

    Anyone interested please post below. I will have to book a table for lunch at the pub so please indicate if you wish to reserve and for how many people.

    If the weather forecast is rain I will cancel the cruise and run it at a later date. A cruise is more enjoyable with the roof off. :coolsteer)

    I have to reserve tables for lunch by this weekend April 1st

    Ooh, I'm going to see if I can make this. The Kent cruises are always a good day out.

    Much better for me with it finishing closer to the motorway!

    Will confirm later Ron.

    I'll be in Kent that weekend so will tag along and if it isn't too late, I wouldn't mind lunch as well. A mate of mine might be coming so the booking would be for 2.

    I'm looking forward to meeting some fellow zedders, not sure I recognise any of the names. I'll be doing my sun dance from now until the 15th \:D/ , hopefuly we will have nice weather. See you soon :-bd

    Ron,

    Can you put me down as confirmed. I may have a passenger, but not sure yet. Can you put me down for 2 lunches (just in case) if not too late Worst case is I have to eat both :-^

    Will be a hectic 3 cruises in 4 weeks. Not worked out the mileage, but it's going to be worth the overdraft!

    Cheers, Gary

    Well done Gary, glad you can make it. I will ring the pub tomorrow and hope they can confirm 2 more for lunch.

    I seem to remember you did mega miles for the day on last years cruise. :coolsteer)

    Hi Pete,

    funny you should mention that. Still not got the new spring fitted.

    When I jacked it up to check the other rear spring, that appears to be relatively new.

    Stupidly I bought a pair beforehand, so I will keep it as a spare...

    See you Sunday :grin:

    Hi Ron, hope the weather is holding up in Kent!

    Just finished cleaning the Z4 as it started raining. As no doubt my car will be filthy when I arrive tomorrow, here are some piccies to prove it was shiny when it left Wiltshire!

    Your Zed is looking good Gary. Hopefully you will have a dry drive to Kent tomorrow. :coolsteer)

    It has been dry here today and is sunny now, the forecast for tomorrow is sun & cloud but dry. My roof is down ready for tomorrow. I guess you will have a early start, the Little Chef will be open if you need breakfast when you arrive. :coffee

    Cheers Ron :coolsteer)
