Hitting the road from Sheffield in the morning and just going until it gets dark!

I know I can do sheffield to pitlochry in about 6 hours (about 340 miles), so not sure whether to split the journey up into two or just go for a long long day and do a oner!

So probably just gonna make it all up as I go along!

Ill keep an eye out for any ABR stickers as I head north, but not heard any rumblings of any other yorkshire based folk setting off tomorrow.
I'm setting off in morning from about 15 miles south of sheffield doing it in one hit, can't be bothered with putting the tent away friday especially if it's piss wet. Leaving about 7am no motorways hopefully be there for 5ish

KTMBLAG - I was hoping to do a oner, but had some issues to sort today, so look like Im gonna be lagging behind in the setting off time :( So depending on time I might have to make it a two'er (but like you didnt wanna down the tent friday morning)

Ill keep mi eyes open for any ABR stickers and give you a shout if I manage to catch up cos looking like an 8 or 9 start :(

All packed up and ready to roll.
Early start from the North West, see where we get to. If the weather is a bit dodgy might go fr the single hit.

See you all in Ullapool.

Boxes packed - tick
Bike checked over - tick
Bike fueled - tick

Bike cleaned? - why, it's only going to get dirty again.
The rain is hammering against the windows just now, so I suppose I could park the bike outside and let the rain do it's bit :whistle:

Not planned a departure time for tomorrow yet . . . looking for a longish gap in the downpours to allow me to get to Ullapool and have half a chance of getting the tent out of it's bag and erected without getting it blown away :S

Safe riding everyone
