    Arrgghhh!!

    I am carless at the moment, so I've been looking at train times.

    Getting there is fine, cos there's no changes between Lincoln and Leicester.

    Returning on the Sunday is a nightmare. Over 5 hours!!! Leicester to Lincoln in 5 hours!!

    Meditate on this I will

    Well, the plan was I was gonna bring it along, but the cambelt went in my car a few weeks back, causing £700 of damage.

    Now I gotta work out whether a 5-hr train journey with 3 changes is viable

    OK, final notes then. Those that are intending to stay over, don't forget to bring some bedding of some kind.

    Bring booze!

    Bring Trivial Pursuit those that have it!

    Again, bring booze! (Or I can run you up to the local Tesco (about a mile away).

    I've got a whiteboard so we can do the pictionary type thing.

    Umm, what else? Anyone?

Hopefully mark will read this n offer me a lift before he sets off!!! but if not hopefully Phil will read this tonight and say hi to everyone and give my apologies.

    Tom, I would have come picked you up. All you needed to do is call me...(or is my number on the phone that got nicked?) Oh, well. Needless to say, I only read that message when I was at Phill's, so unfotunetly it was too late.

    Cheers to Phill and Ross for the hospitallity, guys. It was another great meet!

    I got home about an hour ago, and I also got lost on the way back...not around Leicester...That was a sinch to get out of, it was on the M1. I ended up taking the wrong turnoff at a roundabout because a truck and the bushes were blocking my view, and I only caught it at the last second, so instead of getting on the M69, I ended up going southbound on the M1, which meant 14 miles added on to get to the next junction, plus another 14 getting back -- and it was going at 40mph because of the roadworks, so that was fun......not! o_O

    Ugh!

    You're quite right V, I had no problems getting there or getting back however, the gearbox has died on the van today, probably due to my need to get home on Saturday night.

    Big thanks to Phill and Ross, I had a great time.
