As the start in Livingstone was too early for us to drive up on the Saturday it was a Friday drive with an overnight stay in Livingstone.
To get the TA out meant moving two other cars and as I started Pam's Suzuki the radio burst into life and the song playing was 'Nothings going to stop us now' by Starship. I took that as a good omen and if you read about the rest of the event it will become clear that nothing did stop us.
We took the now familiar A68, but this time all the way to just south of Edinburgh. It was an uneventful drive.
A short break for food at Brockbushes near Corbridge was the only long stop. We made a short stop at the Scottish border for a photo op.
The restaurant attached to the hotel was fully booked so we took a short walk to a nearby pub for a good hearty meal.
When we got back to the hotel there were other MGs in the car park.
