Good Evening All

There will be no IL/TP next week,Friday 23rd, because Fran and I are undertaking a mammoth trip around England, to see and stay with with friends and family we haven’t seen for yonks.

Monday: Belford to Peterborough.

Tuesday: Peterborough to waltham Abbey.

Wednesday: Waltham Abbey to Bodmin.(2 nights)

Friday: Bodmin to Preston to rest and stay two days with the kids!

We shall be avoiding motorways and taking our time, stopping as and when the mood takes us. I am trying to plan a route from Bodmin (Nanstallon actually) to Preston and finding one that avoids large built up areas and motorways is proving a challenge. I don’t have a satnav as I prefer maps.

Any daytime cup of tea stops along the way would be a bonus ;o}

Woolwell whilst poring over the map I have just found the source of your ID, Plymouth suburb?

  Brumas 21:39 16 May 2014

Woolwell so no Well Done for me, only a Good Call then ;o}

  Brumas 21:57 16 May 2014

Woolwell, aah, but can you see Maker Church? ;o}}

I thought you might even prefer postcard navigation over map navigation.

Simply just organize all the postcards of scenes en route into one of those big rotary card indexes from Staples, bolt it to the dash for convenient use, and navigate by surviving Co-op buildings, churches that are still in business, pre-Beeching railway buildings converted to antique emporia, to let coaching houses, lumps of water etc.

And if you do get lost, just ask one of those friendly but incredibly streetwise dogs that loiter around the street corners of most towns... they don't miss a thing!

and of course, watch out for old trams, tolley buses and and the ocasional town clock / fountain etc. that may still be left.

I wonder if Brumas has seen this today - his trip schedule says he is thereabouts.

  Quickbeam 18:36 22 May 2014

I'm sure that he's suitably speechless;)

Brumas speechless...............

That'll be the day!!

None the less it's very quiet from the Brumo camp.

I wonder if he's been stalled by a '60s redevelopment and returned to sender, address unknown...?

I think I am in this scene - aged 12.

Maybe he was born then?
