    great day....all my favorite people turned up...and some new favorite people :ymhug:
    it started out a bit misty but soon cleared up as the Zeds descended on Wales ;)
    as per usual Jim planed a top route :ymapplause:
    i did ask him if we could take it a bit easy through the nice scenery.....but as he pointed out later that was pointless with us lot at the front :ymdevil:
    it was the first proper run out for us in the M and it twitched a couple of times but nowt to bad :-s and as always the lads were on form with the quick stuff :-o
    a few pics from when we were stood still as we forgot the bloody camera and had to use the phone.............

    I have to say understatement of the day! ^:)^ I REALLY LOVED IT, I have never felt so brilliantly lit up driving a car in my life :coolsteer) :coolsteer) , it was stunning. I was nearly in tears as I thanked Taffzee (*) for laying it all on. As Swamper says top route, top company, and brilliant laughter. :D

    Becs asked how he could top that and managed to elicit a sharp intake of breath through the teeth. =))

    I must humbly reiterate Swampers words and vote a big thanks to everyone for a great day, one of the greatest!

    Glad you all enjoyed it :-bd

    Nearly a perfect day, waiting with bated breath now x_x

    Great company once again, thanks to all who attended.

    Will try and get the video on later, but because of the mist a lot of the early footage is rubbish, due to condensation on the lens :(

    If you can send me any Hi-Res pictures you have of the day, I can insert them into the video.

    Please send to:

    [email protected]

    Thanks

    Jim
