Thanks, Myk - diplomatic, as ever!

I probably upset Jules by reminding him that he's getting older, and Martin is avoiding Cornwall, well me and Carol, anyway.

and that was before the ROTM .......

Stick at it, guys, I'll even be able to vote for one of you next month!

Having driven over Dartmoor on our first morning in the pouring rain, DaveR was the first to get His top down
when the rain cleared while queuing to cross from Devon to Cornwall:
