1st June 2013: Reading to Oxford
Waved off from Thomas and Monikas for the short ride the the train station to meet Rachael and James. A sight to lift the heart of a traveller with a long road ahead. Thoughts turn to more immediate concerns such as where and when is the next pub stop. Wheeled our way through the Oxford countryside to Reading under perfect conditions and company.

Its a big operation. Pickup points around the UK, including Worthing. They all end up here in Maidenhead where the are wiped and processed and put onto pallets ready for container shipping.
Had a superbly entertaining evening at Andy’s house.. The winged monkeys fly once more (our pub quiz name).. Wine and conversation flowed. Apologies for the short notice.
Gatwick to Worthing
Followed a well ridden route from Gatwick to Horsham to West Chiltington to Worthing. A long stretch of which is just delightful. The biggest bowl of cheesy chips I’ve ever had was scoffed down en-route. Arrived in Worthing around 3 where I met up with Sue and Dennis (neighbours) who fed, watered and stock me up with advice for the journey ahead. Then to Portsmouth to see Stuart. With a tent pitched in the garden we ploughed our way through a bottle of rum and slept under canvas, I remember looking up Nicholas Nicolby for some reason..
