We decide to take the long route, about 78 miles, to the lunch stop and we set off in high spirits waving goodbye to the Cardrona Hotel as we drove off.
I eventually got a call from the RAC patrolman who was in Berwick, a good distance away. Usually the patrolman arrives, decides it can't be fixed and calls for recovery. This means a long wait. This guy was good though and after explaining the situation he saw little point in coming out to us and booked a recovery truck.
The recovery truck duly arrived and we were soon loaded.
Despite the ending we had a brilliant weekend. It was very well organised, had some great roads, a good hotel with lovely food and most of all, great company. The Caledonian Centre certainly know how to run an event. Thanks to everybody involved in making it happen
