Good morning 

Myself and @Jeepie are looking forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning. 

If you have a radio, please bring it with you - otherwise, we do have spares. We will use Carnity channel #1. 

The convoy numbering we will sort when we start tomorrow. 

It would be great if we can leave as close ot 5am as possible as it gets mighty warm later in the day. 

Any questions, please let me know. 

@Erik Ean - just to confirm you will not be coming? You removed your RSVP, so if that was a mistake, let me know or we will not wait for you.

Unfortunately I had to withdraw my name, I have a task to finish this evening and it will probably hold me until 2AM.

Thanks Erik - It's always better to check. You'll be finishing just as I leave home to get to AD in time! Shame we will not see you. If anything changes, please let us know. As the drive is not full we can accommodate you even at short notice. (050 425 4574)
