Getting closer and starting to get more excited, is it time to start stressing about the weather yet

Depends how you look at it.

1. Bought 2 SUMs off John K for when it rains

2. Bought another kill cord for when I lose one

3. Bought another fuel tank for when I run out

4. Bought a fuel tank switch so I have a reserve tank

5. Bought a handheld VHF, (which I needed anyway) to back up the one in the console, for when I get flooded

6. Bought a coastal flare pack for when I get stranded, (needed that as well tho)

7. Checked my massive flask was still good for holding coffee

and on and on, not stressed at all, just preparing

Well, I spent all day checking over my brakes, bearings and trailor fixings and making sure everything is snug for the tow down, its a long way for us. Is the a prize for the furthest away?
I will be passing Bothwell 10:30 approx Friday heading south, if any others are heading down (kim?) let me know.
I hope the weather has been arranged...........

Google maps informs me I will be doing 297 miles, hoping to leave at about 1300 on the Friday and hoping the M6 behave's itself.

Some of my crew(family) are nowing having cold feet, so may have room on board, for a.n.other

Whilst I am now happy about the fuel arrangements for the IOM trip, for my planning, what is the approx distance around the island on the Sunday and what sort of time do "we" expect to be back at Conway??

Regards
Steve
