Hello there people! My 2nd post now. :) lol

Im from Essex and was wondering whether there are any other people from Essex?

Is there any meets that take place on asort of a monthly basis or anything?

I've tried searching for some, but couldn't find any.

Be good to meet some fellow Mini Drivers.


Thanks

I'm an ex Essex boy now living in Hampshire but I'm always looking for excuses ;) to tell the missus to justify the odd weekend away with my old Essex mates so I can catch up and have a beer (or 5 :D ). Any runs starting in the Brentwood/Ongar/Epping area would be good because my mates live in Brentwood (my old stomping ground).

Cheers

Definately interested in an Essex run too!! :D

From Hornchurch here but go for drinks in Brentwood every week. You may have to start the run somewhere else depending on the number of people in attendance - the only place I can really think of around Brentwood/Ongar is the Sainsburys car park in Brentwood.

Neway let us all know when you know a bit more :D Good stuff mate :D

:bone: Pat :bone:

Hi everyone, ;)
I've began to work out a route and it's excellent! start off point. City Limits in Epping(plenty of parking and easliy accessable from the m25/m11, then through Theydon Bois, back to Epping, Hobbs X, then through to ongar, Ingatestone, Margeretting, Brentwood, then a country park for a regroup, then back towards North Weald, then although i know some of the back roads behind Harlow, Rasp is the man in the know and from this point i'd like to enlist his help in continuing the route around that area and then perhaps finish off at a major road for A)people get home without getting lost and for B) so that we can(as many as possible) take over a pub for a nice afternoon pint & roast.

will start up the thread for it later today.....got lots to do this morning..... :D

Rasp, will drop you a pm to work out a plan.... ;)

Sounding Good Neil, I'm starting to reminise already, I lived in Brentwood, Chelmsford and Hutton for best part of my life so this is really my old stomping ground, especially around Ongar, Ingatestone, Margaretting, Brentwood, North Weald area. These are the roads where I used to enjoy Sunday afternoon thrashes on my various cars and bikes throughout the late 70s 80s and 90s. Oops giving away my age old scroat that I am :D I've probably had a pint in every pub along the way as well ;)

Just need to work on the missus now to ensure that she doesn't line up any Family activities that clash, need to know the date ASAP as she has this "rule" about first to write something on the calender :mad:
