    I'm looking to do mini-cruise, not a lot of miles, 40ish. We meet at Tesco Pembury TN2 4NE at 10.30 a.m. and leave at 11 a.m. So you can still have a Sunday lay-in. :) We will be going through many Kent villages and at finishing at Headcorn Aerodrome where we can have lunch/picnic, depending on the weather. At the Aerodrome there is a lot to see, light planes taking off and landing on a regular basis, parachutists, you can also book a short flight. There is also a museum and a café. http://www.headcornaerodrome.co.uk/
    If it is too chilly for a picnic, I have a quirky tea room in mind for lunch, only 2 miles away. http://bloomsburysbiddenden.com/
    This cruise will only take place if there is no rain forecast. If the forecast is not good, the cruise will be run at a later date, so it will be a top down cruise. :coolsteer) :coolsteer) :coolsteer)
    This is the proposed route. https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?m...0&ll=51.087566,0.477219&spn=0.264388,0.824661

    Already in the diary Ron, we're looking forward to it, that sounds a great route for a mini-cruise. Lets keep fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us! :coolsteer)

    Any more takers for a mini-cruise before the winter comes. We now have 3 Z3's and a Z1. :coolsteer):coolsteer):coolsteer)

    If you can guarantee the sun we'll make a long weekend of it.
    If you can't, sell the Zed ;)

    I'm enjoying listening to the Beatles as I'm typing this Titan. :)

    It will have to be a dry day, sunny would be better, but it will be a top down day. :coolsteer)Its a shame you live so far away as the decision for the cruise to go ahead could be taken the evening before. Not good for you planning a long weekend, as much as it would be good to see you.

    The weather looks good for tomorrow with plenty of sun and light winds, just a possible shower around noon.
    I will keep an eye on the forecast and unless it changes drastically the cruise is on. I will post on here if the cruise is off tonight.
    Not sure if it will be warm enough for a picnic so we have decided to get a meal deal from Tesco Pembury if it turns out it is warm enough. If not warm enough we will go the café in Biddenden.

    Just checked the latest weather forecast and it looks good.
    So we will see you all at 10.30 for a bit of Zed chat and photos before setting off about 11.00. :coolsteer):coolsteer):coolsteer)
