Sounds good to me. I'll be there.

I live south of Toddington in Luton so suggest that I meet you at the Look Out discovery centre at 10.00 sharp. I'll drop you my mobile number. If anyone else is going from Luton area (Phil?), happy to give you a lift (room for one more and a bike in my car).
BTW: multimap of the discovery centre is at: http://www.multimap.com/maps/?qs=lu5+6hr&countryCode=GB#map=51.38727,-0.74176|16|4&bd=useful_information&loc=GB:51.38727:-0.74176:16|RG12%207QW|RG12%207QW

Jase, what device do you use for the GPS bread crumb trail? Is it the N95? I take it that it records you position every 5 seconds or something?
