I have met up with people from the net 10+ times, a few of them came to visit me and I stayed at some of theirs (Who doesnt want free accomodation and a free tour guide in another country??), including people from Sweden, Netherlands, Cyprus, US, and Wales/England/Scotland, and they were all just normal people.
You can spot a creep/weirdo from miles away on the internet, unless you agree to meet up with someone after cybering with someone a few times in a Yahoo chat room.
I'm definitely a serial killer/rapist. better watch out. I mean why would you trust this face?
Or this one?
Look out guys, I have a liter of lube already packed and ready and a dragon dildo. Better not drop your tent or your super camping chairs.
Anyway, i can trade sexual favors for my fire making abilities. You need to decide among you who will make the human sacrifice for warmth and safety from english bears.
NEWSFLASH!! not everyone from the internet is a weirdo and not everyone is out to kill you or rape you, in fact the majority of people from the internet are usually incredibly well mannered day to day people and just have an inflated sense of self worth when they are behind a screen.
That second picture has proven to me you are trustworthy and a bro
I would hang out with you
Even though the campsite is up a hill, remember that what falls on the hillside above us is gonna trickle down.
so wellies are a go.
source?: it's fucking pissing it down here. Thunder n lightning and floods
Im standing in York station now and there is a huge pile up of trains in the north east, the station and roads are flooded in newcastle, and my roommate texted me to say our flat is flooded as well. Cancellations/delays left right and center
They squished two trains of people onto one and set us away, bearing in mind it is at 95-100% humidity and around 20 degrees so the train is literally like a sauna, im actually looking forward to the northern weather, despite the extremely long walk back to my flooded flat because the buses/metro lines are closed.
It's still a week and a bit away, the British weather can do just about anything in that space of time.
Pack for rain, sun, hurricanes, lightning and sandstorms.
Skin is waterproof
if it floods, we're going swimming/kyaking
I'm just glad to get back, it was supposed to be a 1 hour journey and it took 5 hours, mostly standing in a burning hot carriage that was packed so tight you couldnt move. Its nice to have a shower and a change of clothes.
I kinda wish I was here to see it though, apparently it was quite a sight to behold. In a short space of time it went almost completely dark, then we got hit with enormous hailstones and what amounted to around 30 days worth of rain in the space of 30 mins - 1 hour. Newcastle would be totally fine normally but there was such a huge amount of rain in such a short space that the drainage systems were overflowing for a while until it stopped.
Wow what, i go on holiday and then all the shit weather comes.
Mang, I wouldn't get within a mile of flood water like that. You basically have a primordial soup of every last horrible thing in the city. human/animal waste, diseases, bacteria (the worst kinds), molds (the kinds that will eat your lungs if inhaled), dangerous chemicals that are possibly carcinogenic and the list goes on.
If you waded around in that stuff, I hope you didn't have any nicks or cuts and promptly bleached and disinfected yourself. The same goes for your flat. And just because it didn't completely flood your flat, doesn't mean it didn't get in the walls where it can start mold/fungus colonies and cause severe health problems later on.
Guys, pro-tip. if it floods turn your tent upside down and paddle to safety in your new boat.
What do you think the air-mattresses are for?
Apart from building sofas
i'll be fine in my tree
(which i've claimed already and i will fight you for)
I noticed it was raining pretty heavily and when i was in the hallway it was really dark even though it was only 4pm. Looked outside, the sky was green and there was a river in the street. Lol.
Also what, you are moving into Newcastle too? I live in Jesmond, just a few mins on the bus from the city centre.
Oh yeah I remember now, after i45 I remember coming upon Hezzys facebook for whatever reason that there were a few people from FP there. You could just make out my PC in his cover photo.
It was good fun in 2k11, guess im not old enough this year though :/
I'll could bring my slackline along to the camp if anyone is interested, they are a good laugh and pretty addicting.
If anyone doesnt know what slacklining is (The guys in the video dont use trees as anchor points, but its just as good and I can bring something to protect the part of the tree that it goes around):
Its actually much harder than it looks, and they can take up to something like 3-4 tonnes of weight so they are pretty safe to bounce/jump on.
that looks like great fun!!
and also not too much extra weight to carry, so i think that'd be a great idea to bring along! :)
Is there an underwater version?
Since i'm travelling next year with a bunch of money I have aquired, I might go next year.
I had to buy a new slackline which I ordered last night, I just found out the expected delivery time is 10-14 days. The site did say they had stock and they post next day, so hopefully they are just saying that to cover their asses if they have stock issues.
