Could you go from Carlisle to Newc, then Newc to Edin- would that make it any better for you?
So we are going for the 23rd & 24th then?
I'll take that as a yes then
Don't go all silly on us Coz, I can remember a time when peeps got annoyed with people not checking threads
I have been checking the thread, I was double checking those where the dates we're going for so I could book them off. Or can't I even do that without being compared to someone else?
Yes Coz, those are the dates we're going for and I'm waiting for the thread title and upcoming meet to be changed.
Now, let's start a list shall we? I'll list all those who've expressed interest or said they're definately coming just so we can see where we're at- feel free to add / delete as appropriate:
1. Suzi (w/end)
2. Tim (w/end)
3. Jase (Sat)
4. Sie (Sat)
5. Darthsmuse (Sat)
6. Coz (w/end?)
7. George & Melissa
8. Lady Poison (w/end)
Dave's left FF so I guess we can count him out.
Whereas I just got really annoyed at myself for bookmarking the thread and not noticing there was a page 4 now.... wondered why it was so quiet
Not really for the day - the journey time would be as long and the cost would be more than a saver return Carlisle to Edinburgh at Â£41.20. I'm now considering the weekend, coming up on Friday when the service is normal ( 1hr 30 mins) and returning on Sunday. Whilst the return train service isn't normal, its only one bus to Lockerbie and then a train to Carlisle (2hr 50 mins). To keep things cheap I'd probably stay at the SYHA Edinburgh Central, it's only ten minutes walk from Waverley Station at Â£19.50 per night.
Laura, why am I not surprised?
Hmm it's quiet... we are still on page 4, right?
Nope, on page 30 now
Bought my train tix- going up Fri night and leaving Sun mid-afternoon
Right, where's Jase when I need to talk to him about our train tickets
Ere me old dear!
We're now booked!

Return journey: 23 Feb 2008

Isn't it Burns Night that weekend?
Afraid not, Burns night is on the 25th of January!
Good thinking though, Coz! I guess that could've caused potential accommodation problems.
And also, Coz, apols for just reposting to answer your earlier question about whether the dates for this weekend were sorted
Oh well I'm still going to try and have some haggis, tatties and neeps
It's all good, I was being a little moody that weekend and shouldn't have posted that way
Good choice my friend. Haggis is awesome!
Those of us staying for 1 or 2 nights- how are people doing for accommodation?
Darthsmuse & LadyP- have you got somewhere yet?
Tim & Coz- I've found a B&B that has rooms for +2 people if you'd be up for sharing (making it cheaper than a Premier Inn) so I'll speak to one/both of you next time I'm on MSN...
That should be ok, looks like it wont be Cozmic +1
Suzi - just PMed ya!
Tim, Coz (& Martina?)- the following hotel has a family room for Â£25 per person per night. LadyP suggested it:
Shall we go for that? If you're happy with that I'll reserve a room.
