Posted:Ok, myself and thebovrilmonkey are planning a road trip tomorrow and we're after suggestions as to where to go.

Bear in mind that we're currently in south west london and we have to be back by sunday evening at the latest, so we're not going to be able to drive for stupid amounts of hours.
2.5 to 3 hours is probably ideal really.

Also, are there any spinning/juggling meets on tomorrow (saturday) that'll be near enough for us to get to?

Oh yeah, some floor space to sleep on would be gratefully appreciated, it might be needed depending on how far we stray away from home.

Posted:I won't be awake until past lunchtime but if you're dropping past abingdon/oxford let me know I may be about in someone else's car (we do roadtrips quite a bit). Last one we went on lately was down to Bude on the west coast to smoke a bude. Found a couple nice beaches & some really smooth pebbles with quartz veins right through the middle like a big eye

Yeah, Bov and myself ended up in Cambridge for a loveafternoon catching up with old friends both on and off HOP.

The whole thing was a bit cheeky- as it was my last couple of days with my company car, it was decided to make the most of the freedom, so we decided on a couple of jaunts. That said, assuming I can get another car together and afford to run it, I think there may be more random raod visits/trips/missions coming to a town near you. Ideas?

For some reason, that I can't explain, I had a mental image flash into my head of you and Bov on tiny tricycles peddling up the road. Your's was a maroon red and Bov's was bright yellow.

Posted:We were very close to making the trek to see you miss Skully, but it all got a bit late in the day and we decided to postpone in case you were busy or something (or were possibly going to have a heart attack at the sight of Boc and I turning up on your doorstep unannounced, balloon pornstars in hand biggrin)

Re the trikes; Fun though that sounds, I have a feeling that the road element would take rather longer than the meeting poiple and playing lots. Quad bikes, however, cold be a lot more fun (we saw some going up the dual carriageway ((!?!)) (((triple parenthsis to notify of double parenthesis awareness))) which was bloody funny).
