    You know you want to!

    So, we need a meet, basically, because otherwise we'll... expire :p

    So, suggestions please, for location, date, etc etc :p

    Somewhere that I can get to either by walking or by train would be good. I'm thinking a Saturday as I don't have lectures on Saturdays.

    I'm good for anywhere near Plymouth, Torquay and Exeter. I know a good Pub in Plymouth.

    As I said before, most of us are nowhere near Devon, and so it'd be hard for most of us to get down there.

    The easiest places for most of us seem to be Portsmouth or Milton Keynes (I think we've had 2 meets in Portsmouth and 3 in MK), but it gets a little repetitive.

    And completely honestly, London's the easiest for me to get to now. Wales and the Midlands might be merging, and if we can't pull this meet off, it may be a good idea if we were to merge with London. It'd be more fun, and London have quite a lot of meets (I think), so that route may be a good one.

    I like this idea. South events to us Londoners are second most attended after our own ones, and most of yours are better :p

    Well, I suggest we talk about that after Wales is sorted out. I'm not quite sure that this is the same situation

    Feels like it from here...

    But I'm in my usual January rut, I'll probably be fine once it starts snowing... :p

    With the amount the South ever gets you can build an army of mini snowmen :p

    Do make a meet in London. I would be able to come to that too, and I would love to see another big(er) FF meet. ;)

    Expire?!? [face_worried]

    Hmm... I *might* be able to do a London meet, but can't promise anything, what with both time and money being somewhat scarce at the moment :(

    Still, there's always Salisbury again... And you never know - there might be more strange girls trying to steal food again! ;) :D

    hmmm anyone else in the sw? with three of us, that would count wouldn't it... for us (if I may take the liberty...) it's just a pain to get anywhere, since british rails seem to think connections to the southwest aren't really important...

    basically, what I'm saying is, I'd go somewhere in south devon (between plymouth and exeter), but beyond that it will get difficult.

    I can do Exeter!

    Moosie, try gobycoach.com. It takes a little longer but it's generally cheaper, and National Express have been rather good each time I've used them.

    As a student under 26 you should get a railcard. I have one and I get 1/3 off fares, it saves so much money.

    We should do something cultural, like visit a museum or gallery or something.

    London is best choice for that, it has 3 fine museums right next to each other.
