Anton and his wife are familiar with it (apparently she loves it to bits), but this is a one day round trip, so won't be able to spend too much time in one place. Still sounds like a fun outing. :thumbup:

Dylan, Simon, Chris, anyone else? ... are you okes keen?

Dylan ... still not sure that I'll be able to make it, but if I can we can meet at the Abbotsford Engen around the corner from you and leave together before of by 06.30 from there. I've sent Anton a message to find out where they are meeting in King ... it will probably be at the garage on the outskirts (Grahamstown Road). but will confirm. They want to leave there at about 7.00am.

Got this reply from Anton ....
We want to get together at the Buffalo One Stop Engen Garage at 07:00. Its on the way out of King on the Peddie road
However it is as I feared ...... I will not be able to make it (unless something miraculous happens). Pity. :(

Enjoy it guys, perhaps I can join you next time. ;-)
