    Perfect, thanks Mark. I would be lost without the .gpx files, literally

    Nah, just follow me and you'll be fine....

    Mark, Big Ta for doing all that, mucho appreciated. Gotta be worth letting you buy me a pint, surely!

    Planning on doing a recce of a large chunk of the route this week, and the other part (Hexham to Kielder to Corbridge) a week Saturday, hopefully, when I'm up there visiting a pal. Still not had word back from the Lords of Entropy on whether we'll be having sunshine or not...

    But I was planning to do the whole route, I wouldn't want to miss out on the tea and cake stop

    Oh ha bloody ha :P I'll most likely be Porsche-powered, so reasonably confident of doing the whole shosher, as even if my LB gets through IVA on Tues 3rd it's highly unlikely it'll be registered by DVLA for Fri 6th...

    Been Oop Norf today, doing a recce of a large part of the route (didn't have time to do the whole thing). All looking good, and only one "gotcha", which is leaving Hexham as you join the A69 - there are major roadworks at the roundabout, so where I said "get into the right hand lane", that'll now turn you through 180 degrees and have you heading for Newcastle! But I'm sure all you clever Strat Peeps will be able to use your grey cells and suss out what needs doing.

    Other big thing is that the hotel's still there, not burned down or anything, so that's looking promising too! Only a fortnight to go now....
