There are likely to be requests for rides around the route of anyone is willing to takes a passenger along.

I will have room for a navigator as well.
Thank you :)

Also what about the Local Newspapers for Bristol, Bath, Chippenham, Swindon?.

You probably should warn any potential passenger that the suspension on the GTI has not been put back to standard yet and thus is somewhat harded then is normal.

That is of course if the oil leak gets fixed in time otherwise I will be in the poly Turbo Coupe!
