    Having followed a few threads where people are trying to organise a meet, there always seems to be a response saying "would love to but it's a bit far." This comment prompted me to ask how far would people travel for meet? I know people travel great distances for the National Shows but for a weekend meet what would be a comfortable distance to travel?

    We always plan any meet as part of a greater tour so distance is no object. The furthest we have been for a weekend meet was Toulouse.

    How long is a piece of string ?

    We've just put our names down for South Wales. 218 miles because we know it will be a good one.

    Misterton. Only 70 miles but also a known good one.

    So it's the quality of the meet rather than distance here.

    Are you sure you didn't mean it's the quality of the MEAT? ;)

    Agree with Hilldweller, depends on how good the meet is, probably only go 50 to 60 miles max for a c&cc or mcc one. Would go further for a Motorhome fun one.:)

    UK meets are dictated by how much chip fat I can burn, there and back. I have a range of around 1100 miles, so that should cover most of em :D.

    Yes, but am on a diet (y). White wine instead of red, they tell me there is not so much body in it :D.

    I don't mind travelling far as my home always follows me. Keep on trucking.
