    Just checked into our digs in Oxenholme, just outside Kendal. We left Truro at 6.30am, didn't stop until we got to Stoke on Trent, Jtn 15/M6 and that was just a quicky for fuel.
    Stopped for toilet break at Lancaster and set off again straight away. Noticed another Zed approaching in my mirror and when he pulled alongside saw it was @NODZED.

    We drove into Kendal together, parked up and went for a lunch break.

    It was a great drive up, nice and comfy, steady speed all the way. I've covered just over 400 miles today so I'm resting now until the meet tomorrow.

    There is a nice country pub over the road from our digs and that is as far as I'm venturing today.

    Jill worked all night counting the votes at a counting house and got home at 5.20am this morning. She had a quick cupper then plonked herself in the Zed and promptly went into a coma=)) She woke up when I stopped for fuel at Stoke.

    See you all tomorrow:thumbsup:

    All settled in our digs had a small run out to Coniston. Came back via the Ferry. Had a smile when a cyclist commented on the Z whilst waiting for the ferry. Bit of a shock expected some cutting remark instead said that's the perfect car to go round the Lakes in. Of course i have to agree

    I'm very jealous. Never been to the lakes, even work wise. We'd have loved to have been there but a combination of things put stop to that. Have a great day all and let's see plenty of piccys!
