oops our posts crossed Bill.  Ramsgate is the nearer station.  I will take you about 15-20 minutes to walk from the station to the Granville or I could pick you up at say 8.00 which will give us time to drive back to my house to drop the car off and jog on down

That's fine Mark, I should arrive around 07.45 so I will wait outside the station. Can you email me a contact phone number just in case anything stupid happens like my train being cancelled.

Latest weather forecast is for highs in the low 40s and lows in the low 30s and snow showers in the morning, oh joy of joys. I have enough trouble staying on my feet in dry conditions.

Bill I will send you my mobile phone number.  Just thought I will need to pick you up at 7.50 so that we can meet the others at 8.00.  Are you planning on making the session tonight?  Hill reps I think LOVELY

Looks like the weather is gonna add to the fun although BBC weather website is saying only 20mph winds 4 deg and sunny

I've been out running and now I feel alive - cold, wet but definitely alive!

Great fun on the top of the Downs watching the rain dancing and swirling in the wind, then as it (wind) drops to turn and gust the other way it dumps the water like a cold power shower. All those sad people in their cars - I always feel the farmers and myself are sharing a secret joke on days like today.

My weather forecast promises cold but bright and no precipitation - jelly babies fortunately work in all weather. Is there somewhere on route we can buy extra water?

Right off to play with operation stack - need to takes parents to WHH for post op check-up.

Bo-bo  there is a village shop in St Nicholas at Wade which I guess is somewhere around the 18 m mark (ish)  I usually stop there and buy water or fruit juice and a snack

That's fine. I cannot make tonight as we have company annual dinner up in London, black tie job. Unfortunately I will go into saturday on the back of several days off training and next week gets even worse as I am up in Harrogate from Wednesday to Sunday, but after that everything clears up. I am also taking three days off the following week so I will pile the miles on then.

Shall I bring a hip flask tomorrow then? Or maybe one of those foil bags out of a 3 litre wine box. You did say we would be stopping for refreshments.

After the night I am intending to have tonight, no wine will not be welcome tomorrow!!!!!!!!!
