    I'm going to save up so I can go to London in the near future. I'm thinking it'd be a great idea to go to the Natural History Museum to look at the dinosaurs and go round the Darwin exhibit. Does this sound like a good idea?

    I'm up for that.

    The Darwin Centre is great and I haven't been since they finished it and opened it properly to the public.
    Also the Museum has now got a copy of the "Ida" missing link primate fossil that was raved about in the papers last year, I would like to see it.

    That's a great idea! I'm definitely up for it.

    It costs me £40 to get to London, so it'll have to be in a few weeks when I have the money saved up. How's the 20th of March?

    If the weekend is most managable for you that's fine, but I won't be able to attend since I work at weekends.

    Hmm, well, we could wait until the Easter Holiday before we do it? I should definitely have money then and I'll be free on weekdays too.

    That would be good, although bear in mind that in the Holidays it will be very busy with Tourists and kids.

    Ugh, I forgot about that. Well, I'm free from Wednesday onwards, so any of those days after Easter would be ok. I need to see what's happening though, I was supposed to be working in a school before Easter but that seems to have fallen through and I don't have a clue as to what's going on now.

    For me Easter is ok, depending on when my mother decides to visit during the holiday.

    I'm available Friday or Monday. I can do Wednesdays also if need be, volunteer work doesn't pay so I don't have to be committed to it :p

    Things have kind of messed up big time. I don't know when I'll be working and I don't know when I'll get paid. It could be Easter or it could be weeks after. I'll definitely be in London on the 30th of April, so if that's good for everyone else we can do it then.

    Cool. I'll have my dad with me so we can pretend he's a fanforce member if it's just us two. ;)

    I'll be arriving in Waterloo at 11am, so we could meet there. It might be easier to meet at the WHSmiths there than try and meet up at the museum.

    I'm not sure I can meet up at that day since I will be working until 3.30pm.

    Could someone start an event thing and invite people? I'd do it but I'm not sure how.

    Nice idea. Haven't been to the Natural History Musuem in years. My schedule doesn't put me in London for months, though.

    It was just me, SithLordDarthRichie, and my dad, in the end. Was a nice day and it was great to see Richie again. I got a dinosaur and we got a photo of us and an honorary member (Darwin's beard), so it's all good.
