I'm out of bed at 4-51, the excitement has got the better of me.  So early breakfast. Then 3 hours to kill before the grand depart. Safe journey to all.     Geoff :002:

Some cracking routes there lads.
I've got lots of A6, plus B7076 plumbed in for a start. What I actually do will be weather dependent.
Breakfast and OFF then.
Now, wet trousers on from home or not? :lostit:
Maybe ON will frighten the rain away.

See you later guys.

Ted.

Same dilemma for me Ted regarding wet weather gear :notsure:.  For sure we will need wet gear tomorrow, but the journey to Moffat looks like it could be dry. So if it's still dry here (Leyburn) when I leave at 8-30 I'm setting off with textile jacket, and leather legs. But will take textile legs in top box. :027:

Lovely here in Liverpool just now, but looks like I will leave in time to catch the heavy rain in the borders this evening.  :003:

Ted, I would put dry trousers on if I were you, wet trousers would be uncomfortable.
Your dry trousers will become wet trouser if it rains anyway.
