    It states it very clearly in the Grand Day Out thread's title and first post on the regional boards, I don't see what is so difficult about that.

    Phill, I've edited the title at Jase's request, so that the Northern brethen with specsavers needs don't get confused. Which reminds me, I need to book an appointment with them soonish ;)

    Dave - should have gone to specsavers ;) :p

    Depending on transport, I may or may not go. The train tickets, as well as Download Festival itself, has crippled my finances.

    Not yet, but even with that, I doubt I could afford it. I won't be working until after the World Cup, hence, no cash.

    OK guys - my car is gonna be the make or break I guess for some, so I will commit here and now!

    4 spaces going - £15 each (or more if my gas guzzling car needs it! Be prepared for more -just in case!). I need to fill those 4 spaces though, unless the remaining passengers pay more petrol costs)

    Very early start on Sunday morning (tbc) and coming back on Sunday around 5/6pm latest.

    Picking up ONLY in Darlington.

    Anyone up for this, drop in here and let me know asap.

    After those pics you posted North Boss, I think you are camp enough! :p
    Ba-da-dum! Thank you, I am here all day and night (it seems). Modding you. My finger close to the edit button. :p

    Nah, I'll probs stay in a hotel for this one, the Bristol meet is still to be decided upon for camping/not camping. I have to work out trains, but also consider the Dickie road trip where we discuss the finer points of loving chippy girls haha ;)

    ***Best put in a note: I am jesting myself about my chippy girl, she's a friend, not anything else. Dickie on the other hand isn't :p ***

    Booked - you have the co-pilots seat.

    Wear those suspenders again though and the truckers will be 'ogling' (get it? lol) you all the way down the motorway...

    Spike2002 - is that you in too?

    hmmm....too many choices [face_thinking]

    I really wanted to go to the Bristol Fantasy Event (30th July) so I can't do that & Sutton Park [face_frustrated] (my GF would kill me)

    which to choose :_|

    It looks like this is going to be more popular - and I suppose the Gmex is coming up in Nov


    and did I hear camping mentioned :D

    Camping was mentioned, though I'm not sure we're gonna get everyone to go for it spike. Looks to be just a 1 day thing.
