    Vehicle : Dodge Journey

    Trim : SXT

    Engine : 2.0Tdi (VW Engine)

    Year : 2010

    Mileage : 53000

    Default How far are you willing to go?

    Thought i would start a thread just to see how far people are willing to travel for a meet. So please reply then a few words about your thoughts on meets.

    Me im happy to travel 30-40miles for a meet, the reason is that with the great scottish weather im not willing to travel 100miles to stand in the rain, dont mind doing that if its only a few miles from home. So for me that means i get the chance to attend 2 or 3 meets a year which i think is not very good and would like to see more local meets inbetween the longer distance meets. For instance i goto a local meet in march there are 1 or 2 longer distance meets which for me are to far then the next local meet is 5months later.

    Define local? Irvine? Ayr?

    There was a meet in december - granted the weather wasn't great - but nothing I can govern, Luss, again weather decided to to the opposite and the place was heaving due to the heat not something I could ever govern. As there has been a meet in March in Irvine, I was moving it back to Strathy park. So how local is local?

    Nothing to do with previous meets your jumping the gun I only said about most members being from Ayrshire /inverclyde I don't mind travelling mate but some of the locations will suit some but not others I appreciate its hard to please all and lack of locations as you know I have went to east coast meet but would prefer closer strathy park suits me as its more central but I do like the Ayrshire meets also as I get to meet some local guys I'm not shooting you down as I know is a hard role

    Think it depends on what the meet is and obviously the weather but id be up for travelling most places, the 1 in irvine was good because it was local to me but Im up for strathy and was going to luss just things came up for that one. But ive bn to crail for meets with previous cars etc.

    When i get a job and get my vec up to the standard of some on here ill be at every meet i can get to.
