Car pooling

I have noted interest from mtikky, Last20 and Flexible preferences for car sharing. Are you three still interested? Have I missed anyone?

No problem snaxmuppet. Sounds perfectly sensible.
I'm now imagining you springing mountain-goat-like up ravines and racing onto the next stopping point

I have updated wiki with the now full car. At current exchange rate, the rental comes to about £67 per person.

I was in Iceland last weekend. Had a beautiful day on the Golden Circle trip.

Nice to see that this 'Do' has made this week's TalkMail. Looking forward to a pretty unique trip experience for me. :-)

Great tips here

Not joining you as I will be there three weeks next June. Anyway I am a photographer and need early and late shots, hard to get when there’s not much night, and I would really slow you down. Have fun. I’m making lots of notes. Be careful. I just injured a bone in my foot not looking where I was walking.

Something has come up and I can no longer go

So cancelled flight and cancelling hotels in a few minutes so my rooms will be available soon.

Very disappointed but sometimes life gets in the way of what you want to do.

I hope you all have a great time.

Sorry you won't be joining us snaxmuppet.
But I'm still very much looking forward to it.
One small change - I'll be at the Hilton on the 7th - seemed easier given I'm car sharing with jfalllesen. And I got it on points :-)
