Maybe that means their engines won't pack up before the end...

*Alex - looking at the weather forecast we will better leave some gear in SH but take plenty of beer with us



Dude you should be in the UK by now, hope you have a great sleep and looking forward to meeting you for the first time tomorrow at Biffers

Take it easy dude, i'll be there around 10am

I was thinking, if you lot struggle to get fuel in Oban for the Oban-Inverness leg il be at the canal in my pickup when you arrive for the first lift. Itl take you quite a while to get up the staircase so I would be up for doing a fuel/supplies run for those needing it.

The filling station is about 5 mins by car. Co-op is 2 mins.

This is not about the engines and I do hope they do what they have set out to do and have great fun doing it. but it is not Round Britain and that is my point.

Have you ever done such trip . I on the other hand have been all they way Round Britain and know exactly what that means so please less such stupid comments

You're dead right Andre.
Really we should have called it the Round England and Wales 2014, but REAW14 doesn't really roll off the tongue like the RB14.

Still - if we do the top bit of Scotland next year, we can call the series of cruises the Round UK and Ireland Trilogy - RUKAIT doesn't sound too bad!
