    Because we've been talking about going to Bath or Bristol for a while now, time to actually plan it, eh :p

    So, when, where, how, etc :p

    Which one's easiest to get to from Portsmouth? Assuming I don't get swamped with work I should be able to go one weekend. There's also what we plan to do. Bath has the Roman Baths, but I don't know what Bristol has.

    They're both easy to get to from Portsmouth. Just catch the Portsmouth - Cardiff train, they're both on the same line. Bath Spa and Bristol Meads :p

    Bristol I believe has Lord Admiral Nelson's flagship HMS Victory in which he won the Battle of Trafalgar.

    Bristol has the science museum and planetarium, that's pretty good fun but a bit pricey :/ It also has a nice big Forbidden planet :D Bath is a lot nicer place to wander around as it's a pretty town, and yup it has the baths, not sure what else really! Well there's a Jane Austin museum, not sure it'd be your kinda place though :p

    So, Bristol counts counts as South England. I really need to work on my geography of England and the rest of UK. ;)
    Anyways, I'll have course fieldwork in/near Bristol in October and maybe in November as well. When will this Bath/Bristol meeting take place? I'd like to come if I can, as an (almost-official) FF Croatia and soon-to-be FF London invader. :p

    It'll be whenever we can decide when it'll be :p

    We've got Collectormania at the end of October, so this will either be early October or early November, or just be continually postponed until we get 3 people together at the same time :p

    Milton Keynes, a bit North West of London. It just falls into South :p We did several meets there before becoming Official. Matt (Tice) usually has a stall there, not sure if he is this time though.

    That's an obvious invitation for you to go and gatecrash her field-trip, guys ;)

    When is it? If it's a Thursday or a Friday I might be able gatecrash.

    Oh, and what's the field trip for?

    Geological/Palaeontological fieldtrip, organized by UCL Earth Sciences. The annual schedual just says that we are going to Bath, Bristol, Dorset. And Norfolk as well. And Cornwall. All fieldtrips include fieldwork, so they last a few days. And i'll probably be given some free time to meet you guys at one of those places. If this Bristol/Bath thing will ever be held, that is. :p

    And even though gatecrashing is fun, believe I'll have some time for the proper meet. ;)

    I could gatecrash anyway?

    But yeah, just say when and I'll see if I'm busy or not. :)

    Sure. :) I still don't know the exact dates of the fieldtrip, though.

    Rosa_Belle's coming to Bath sometimes next year. We could have a meet when she's here.

    Also, Tim knows some cons for Bristol, so I'll let him take some credit for a change and not mention them myself :p
