    20200119_135426.jpg 20200119_141328.jpg 20200119_135445.jpg After a chance chit chat with @Mint and @Mrs Mint it was swiftly decided to carry out a trial run of day 2 of the 2020 Lakes Tour run. A spot of tea, chit chat and banter and a couple of sherberts the night before then on it, early for the Mints ;) and several hours into the day for me :D 1.5 hours from our gaff to the start point down the West Coast road, coffee, SatNav set (Garmin is pants :mad:) and off. It's an absolute peach of a route :D. A couple of stops for coffee/snacks to check out the chit chat stops, both seem good :thumbsup: January, a bit of sun and roofs down from 09:00hrs to 17:00hrs, 0°C - 3 °C so heaters and wooley hats and heated seats were the order of the day, toasty. All in all a superb night before and day out in the glorious Lakes. Great company and assistance (TomTom is good :whistle:), see you both in May if not before, thanks guys :thumbsup:

    What a great weekend:thumbsup:, up to Glym Towers yesterday for a scoop or two and chat. Then as Andy says an early start for us to recce Day 2, and yes, it is a superb run. Can't wait to do it again but next time with 6 Zeds behind me:whistle:. Shattered now having driven 470 miles over two days so I'll sort some photos tomorrow.
    Thanks Andy and his C-in-C for having us up for a sleep over and a great Zedding day.:thumbsup::scorecard:
