Just sent email to Dorren.

My dates are now ...

to arrive Sunday 6th
to depart Saturday 12th

I've got relatives in Pembrokeshire so am planning to split the journey and stay with them on the way there and back.
Planning on the Fishgaurd Rosslare ferry = outward at 11.30 Sunday 6th = return at 15.00 Saturday 12th.
Does that fit in with anyone else's itinery or am I travelling "billy no mates" ?
MOTO GUZZI T3 with Le Mans engine, frisky for an old girl
YAMAHA TDM900 (blue-the fast model) - built to cruise
BETA EVO 4T - built to bruise
KTM EXC Racing enduro - built to bruise bigger!

Only 4 toys at the moment, need to go shopping I think



I DON'T DO EXERCISE - if God had wanted me to bend over, he would have put cake on the floor
