We've started!!

Team C90 is officially on route!   Peter, Mark and Will arrived without mishap from Chelmsford, although Peter lost his lunch on the M23. Waved off by Ali, Gareth and Alan, first stop 400 metres up the road for Will get a sandwich. Weather was good, stopped at Pulborough for a quick break, then on down to Emsworth to the Travelodge. Took over the carpark, chatted to other people on practiced a bit of off roading outside the Little Chef.

Peter Off roading round the Travelodge

Oh no - then the support vehicle broke. Automatic locking jammed so boot couldn't be opened. Bit of a problem, given that stuff had to be taken out, repacked, and reloaded. Lots of nocturnal fiddling later, and then suddenly, it all worked. Disaster one averted!!
