    Ok - I'm sure there are a few gogs on here, and a few of us who just pretend to be...

    I thought I should really start a roll-call so that I can start organising a meet. - I'm also open to suggestions on that:

    • I like the drive to Bets-Y-Coed, and think that would be a great place for a meet (or maybe Llanberis), but acknowledge it's a bit of a drive for people in the East.
    • I've heard that Horseshoe Pass near Llangollen is also a good drive, and that the Ponderosa Cafe is a good place to stop for a meet, but I've never done it (and it might be a bit of a drive for anyone in the West).
    • I could see that Prestatyn beach (or even Talacre if people aren't scared of getting their R dirty) could be a nice place in the sunny months.
    • I can also be really lazy and suggest somewhere like the Mill House (Broughton Shopping Park) because there seem to be a few people who have been sighted in the area anyway.
    Thank you for your time, and I look forward to your suggestions (and reserve the right to ignore them). :thumbsup:

    You remember, the pedal box has come away from the bulkhead! I'm guessing Lisa and Paul have been busy and not got round to breaking the MIG welder out... it hasn't been great weather to be honest (not that I've seen much of it from my bed).

    Good luck with it, hopefully it will be fixed quickly and cheaply!
    About this time last year I bent my wishbone by skidding into a kerb on the icy roads... and this year I've had to have the welding done underneath... anyway, I guess what I'm saying is that I know that feeling of there being something wrong every bloody year!

    Ivory, but that's close enough. I don't think there's another ivory or white one around here.

    I'm not often in Buckley, but I work in Hawarden so I'm often in the area.

    I think we're out of time for a meet this year, and people are less inclined to come when it's cold in the new year. - I'm glad to get some local knowledge, so I think that can be our first meet location!

    I think Big Sve is in Rhyl too (isn't he?), so it seems like Rhyl/Prestatyn/Talacre is the place to be...

    Mine was only off the road because it failed the MOT and needed a bit of work doing, but it's back now (albeit with a tyre that keeps going down); it's my daily driver, so it's only off the road if I can't help it.
