    Firstly, I would like to say that overall we really enjoyed this cruise and thanks to @billz for organising it. Unfortunately, we were probably in the wrong group to start with and I should have asked to move to a slower group before the cruise started. Some of the members of Mental Motor Group certainly lived up to the name they were given. We changed groups at the first stop and from then on the cruise was far more enjoyable for us. Thanks to @Mint for guiding the group expertly around the rest of an outstanding route. Maxine really enjoyed the ford, thanks to @Bozzy for the photos. Tomorrow we are driving home with our sons springer spaniel in the zed so should be an interesting 150 miles. Will post some pics of the dog as requested.

    I didn't need to take my air filter out after all :nailbiting:



    Thanks @billz for a fun day out. I even had a bit of fun with ...RHA when I was nearly home :whistle:.

    I've just seen on another post that @Rha is from Hemel Hempstead. Did it throw you when I didn't take the M1?:wtf:

    Sorry you were in the wrong group at the start Alan. It is hard to define what groups to put people in when putting these groups together especially when you do not know the way members like to roll. Hope it did not put you off any future cruises up here.

    I did not. It was not my fault the car in front of you failed the Cruise Etiquette and did not wait for you. But then again if you did not dawdle like the old man you are you would not of lost sight of him =))
    I now think that is 3 cruises around the peaks and 3x you have either misplaced the group or lost them completely. =)) There is no f***ing hope for you =))=))

    I forgot to mention that when we pulled up at the Hartington turn off to wait for the wanderer @MAURICE THE MARTIAN A blue Z3 Coupe in lovely condition pulled up who is a member on the M Coupe forum. I passed our forums details on to him so hopefully we will get w new member. Did not get a pick as everyone was too busy chatting
