    Also, is it really that far for one point to another, Didn't think any one place would be more than a day trip from any other location?

    Wish I could go!

    Seven hours or so in the car in one day is a bit more than I find comfortable. I start to get bored after 1 hour...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Guessing not many 80mph run for hours type of driving. I get on I-70, point it west, and the next stop sign is 550 miles on the off ramp in Denver.

    Still wish I could make the tour.

    I think this is an opportunity that is too good to miss.


    A tentative sign-up of interest here would be good start, then Simon can set it up for a suitable date. I imagine that most able to attend will be people from our little island(s) but obviously it's open to all APUG members.

    I'm down for no. 1 place ...... who's next?
    Yes please

    I have an image of you all stumbling along in the dark while a disembodied voice intones "..and on your left you can't see the coating line. And on your right you can't see the cutting machines. And in front of you....".

    Yes, I'm jealous.

    Bob - if you're that concerned by the drive, I'm sure I could pick you up en-route, I'll have to go past your way to get there anyway. Lets see how it pans out, but the offer is there if you want it.

    It looks like APUG is well represented! We all look forward to a report of the trip. I wish I could go.

    Not at all concerned - I just find driving long distances deadly boring... In practice, I'll probably take two or three days off and spend some time in N. Wales as well. Last time I was there the engine in my old Isuzu 4x4 blew up so I only had 4 days of the week I had planned... Time I had another go...

    Cheers, Bob.
