Well, its over for this year . . . and what a blast, a thing of legend!
worship

No doubt others will post a few snaps, to give you all a flavour of the trip. . . But this was snap of the Boyos at The Groes Inn, near Conwy.

I've also uploaded the (redacted) Road Book in case anyone wants to replicate the route over a week end in the summer. (PM me if you want GPX files for your SatNav)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B945zjUHxoVLWm1BMlVXQ0RFOXM/view?usp=sharing

Great bunch of people, great hospitality and food at our stops and of course The Groes.

We must do it again . . .

Was a great surprise to be driving back to Conwy to see all the cars out. Could only say hello to a few guys (three kids and a wife to get back to an extended family meal). I was the fella with the dirty green Land Rover 110.

I'm sure you all had a great time.

My wife gave best in show to the Riviera Blue.

Cheers for making my day

The three turbos on a breakaway convoy back to base camp on Saturday PM.

I can't thank Phil enough for the huge amount of work that went into the planning of this event. He'd even arranged the runs to ensure we were never driving into the sun! I kid you not this was perfection.

it was so good to meet you all too - a better bunch of guys you couldn't wish to find 👍👍👍👍

Hotel pretty good too with some great 'views' 😀

PS thank you Christian again for your troubles - you rescued a man in need!

I would put a bit of video up of the Triangle, if it wasn't such a PITA to do on here. I don't have a YouTube account.
Great effort Flight Commander, great roads, great group of guys, great stories. Haven't laughed so much in ages.
Looking forward to next year.
