    So seeing as this part of Kent is fairly open, I thought I would plan a meet for the area.
    The route is a mixture of countrylanes & Dual carriageway.
    To start we will meet at Thanet way services Westbound side with the Costa & Shell garage. Good chance to get that early morning coffee & fill up. From there its country lanes & then the A299 with a long tunnel to Minster services. Here we will regroup briefly for 15mins with a Mcdonalds on site. We will then take the Dualcarrigeway & countrylanes along with another long tunnel to our second re group stop, a Shell garage on the A20 for around 15mins. Then leave there for our final desination, the Stop 24 M20 services where there is plenty of places to eat lunch. Should get there around midday.
