    Why climb loads of stairs to a pub when you can walk 100 yards ;)

    Have to admit, Spike (not sure whose real and whose true) and the Viking lady will become something of a legend. Bit of a shame she gave him a shield though :(

    Well ... my pics are gone (sorta) :( Just had a glitch ... as in the camera battery dying on me whilst transfering, it messed up what was sent across, I thought I had transferred the pics to my comp, so deleted from the camera, and then nearly died when I realised what had happened. Guess that's what happens when you are shattered. On the good side, Jase should still have my images from Saturday (the meet), I have just lost the pics from Sunday which were the mystery play stuff and some from around York. Just a little gutted right now, and tired lol.

    On a better note, I went into York Minster on Sunday, and a little something from Sat that we were told we couldn't get should be winging it's way to me this week :D

    At the top, buying the ticket was well worth it (how much did they charge us for all that pain lol?). The certificate should be with us soon

    Yoda and the Emperor - part 3

    Afraid that was all that was salvaged from the camera nightmare lol, I really like "Yoda and the Emperor - part 1", may use it as promotional imagery for the FF-UK: North.

    Some favourite moments, and there were a lot, this was a great meet everyone, had loads of fun.

    Discovering El Piano! What a great place it is for vegetarians :D I went back for lunch on Sunday and had a nice conversation with one of the waitresses about the York Mystery Plays.

    Sie's viking encounter! Lol, that lady like you matey, and haha when the kid got the best note on Boromir's horn! I actually quite enjoyed the Jorvik centre, was quite funny all the smells.

    Gimli on the battlements - I have a costume idea now! Darn tall elves! :p Wall walk was great.

    The race to the top of the tower - won by Obi-Wan (real spike) who I think had an unfair Force advantage - he flew! Whereas someone I won't mentioned crawled lol :p Like I said, I went back on Sunday to ask about the certificate, I hope we'll get it this week.

    Impromptu Picnic - I need a bib (fortuna) lol. But the Subway was nice what I didn't spill of it at the end.

    "My god! You look like Ewan McGregor!" Ghost Tour guide to real Spike lolololololol! Has to be the funniest thing said all day :D

    Mystery plays on Sunday - loads of fun, some excellent costumes and acting, wish I had the pics to show you :(

    Was great seeing you all, I really enjoyed the trip to York. Thanks everyone!

    Glad you managed to salvage some of the photos - nice ones too.

    lol re Ewan McGregor - maybe Spike should get a tomato costume next ;)

    Definitely got to do York again - will get in training re climbing the stairs for next year. Might just about me fit enough by then.

    Definitely. There's no middle ground there where we have to walk over a precarious ledge :p

    You want ledges, you want the Lake District - can't remember where it was but when I was at school we went somewhere that would no doubt be banned today lol Single width path with a big drop.
