Kent Cruise Sunday 21st April

Post by Ragtop » Wed 06 Mar, 2013 22:17

Its time for another Kent Cruise, same route as last year but with a different starting point as the Little Chef has closed. New starting point is BP fuel station at Blue Boys TN12 7HE.

We meet at 9am departing 9.30 and head to Dungeness for tea/coffee and hopefully we will be able to see the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch train. And those who need to burn off energy there is a lighthouse to climb up if open.

We then head off to the lunch venue Crown Point Inn TN15 0HB with a stop on the way at Headcorn Aerodrome time permitting. It is estimated getting to Crown Point Inn at 1.30.

This is a link to the route. https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=20 ... 3,0.676346

Estimated miles about 105.

Please post below if interested and indicate if you require lunch.

Ragtop Ron & Gail Lunch x 2
Burrie Dave & Sue Lunch x 2
Gazza Gary & Sandra Lunch x 2
Country Boy Nigel & Sue
Bowie001 Ian & Sue Lunch x 2

That was a coincidence,me pulling out in the middle of you whilst you were leaving the Crown Point! We were the ed M which followed you through the lanes of Ightham before turning off to head for home. Loving the two Zeds we were following but seemed to lose the silver one unless he was off in a different direction.

The Crown Point seemed to be the epicentre for cars today, there were a couple of old TRs there this morning whilst I was out biking, and an E-Type hammering it up Seal chart which was a rare treat.

Hope you had a great cruise, maybe we will getto meet you properly some time.

Darren & Helen in Charlotte.

Hi Darren & Helen, it was great to briefly meet you, a good ending to our cruise! you could've come for lunch, maybe next time. It was a great day, :drive Maybe Silverstone?
Thank you again Ian for the diagnostics, very much appreciated. Hope to see you all again soon, Dave & Sue.

Thanks everyone for making today really enjoyable.

Daz & Helen and Charlotte of course, it was really good seeing you in my rear view mirror today, I didn't realise you came from Wrotham, shame you couldn't join us on the cruise.

Thanks Ron & Gail for organising another grand day out on a fine and sunny day, it was good to see you all again. Glad we could help with the diagnostic, Dave.
Sue and I peeled off in the opposite direction to the red ZM just after we saw it!
