Sam, tried to mail you last night but got the on tour reply and did not want to phone so mailed V12 with message. That is, when did the lads do The Groove, Llec Ddu in the Carnedds? Has it slipped your minds, pity to maybe put a dampener on things but you will feel reet pissed off if you forget a route by a simple mistake. Good luck, weather forecast on countryfile is crap till Wednesday with gales and lots of rain but improving Wednesday just enough to snatch victory. good luck.
