RIBnet express? Port Talbot to Brighton/Solent

I've just bought a small kayak from a bloke in Port Talbot and wondered whether anyone might be heading east along the M4 in the not too distant future who might be able to pick it up for me please? Happy to contribute to fuel/beer/Macmillan as appropriate. Thanks

I can transport it some of the way, but not as far as Brighton.

Maximus is going from Brizzle to Poole tomorrow which would have made a proper relay, but I don't think we can get off the starting blocks in time to make that happen.

DHD any idea when you might be heading in this vague direction? Maybe we could work from there...

I'm in Swindon if that helps for a drop off point, but not sure that I can transport it as the disco roof basket isn't really the right shape?

Can drop off here if it's the weekend? Unfortunately I'm in Avonmouth the next couple of days but only in a silly little hire car.
