Hi everyone .. Can we post all contact, arrangement and other chatter reference our CtC on this CTC ... :D ... page please.
Not all of the WIMPS have access to instagram and at least one member does not have a personal mobile phone.
It worked well for the LEJOG and other meets so lets keep it going.

So far the following are taking part; Ken, David, Chris, Pete, Kev, John W, John B, Nick, Paul, Alasdair .... and a couple of email addresses i cannot decipher ... please fill in the blanks someone.

What a brilliant idea landsurfer
I would ask that the wimps do not discuss where we are staying until the details are finalised. I think your list is complete
I'm not getting older,just gaining more experience

Anyone camping the night before we set off? I can ask mates an hour's drive away to see if I can sleep on their floor but tempted to be in Whitehaven so I don't have a mad drive in the morning.....

Good organising Ken....

As per the LEJOG, AB Hoses & Fittings Ltd have kindly offered the use of a fully expensed van for support before, during and after the event.

PLEASE NOTE !! ... We need to find a driver for this vehicle.

Over 21 with a full driving licence.

Suggestions, volunteers, etc to myself.

At this time Jules cannot join us as the children will be back at school / college ...

Ken, can you find a campsite for the night before the start in the Whitehaven area for those of us planning to camp.

I see.....that makes sense....
Practical question. Possibly the most important question to be covered. Are the campsites close to a pub. I'm planning on traveling light..... :lol:
