Yetholm Norton weekend

Another splendid weekend in good company, thanks to David for the organisation. We left after work on Friday for the shortish run down to the borders, traffic was hell on the Edinburgh bypass but to be fair most people made way for us so we could filter up the middle. The run down the A68 and then A697 was most enjoyable, the traffic all but disappeared and it stayed dry despite the ominous black clouds, we stopped in Kelso for something to eat and made it to Yetholm in time to get the tent up and give the midges something to feast on! Great to see everyone again and once again a weekend of talking nonsense and drinking, not a bad life at all. Waterproofs donned today for the run home but the rain wasn't too bad, just enough to get the bikes dirty again. Pictures paint the tale better than I can........
