    Gotta get the 05:04 bus from Camden Road to Euston. That means getting up at 4 and leaving at 4:50 ouch!
    I need to set off somewhere between 5 and 5.30, be up an hour two beforehand so I'm well awake when I get in the car... it's going to be another long day

    i shall be arriving with hezzy on the monday (coming down from scotland on the sunday so i can actually be there for a half decent time) and leaving on the weds morning. would anyone be able to give me a lift to windermere on the wednesday, my train leaves at 10.49. i will give you petrol money if you like, it's just i'm looking at info for the buses and they seem to be few and far between, and aren't really something i'd like to rely on...

    haha, well indeed. although now it turns out i shalln't be staying with hezzy on the sunday - his girlfriend isn't cool with me staying in the spare room or whatever - so i'll probably be turning up on the monday afternoon about 3pm, as was my plan before. i still need to mull it over though

    Ah, new thread.

    There'd better be an ATM somewhere, I've only got a small amount of spendable money.

    Weather forecast has gotten better, so hopefully (touch wood) we'll have some nice weather. Won't be a scorcher, but will be pleasant.

    Chance to rain has decreased by 20% and the temperate prediction has raised by about 5 or 6 degrees.

    Leeds. Probably about 1h15m drive actually, but the middle of Leeds on a Monday morning ain't gonna be pretty.
    Heh, getting up at 8:30, 10 minute drive to Bradford Interchange, sorted :smug:

    If I'd have known you lot were all setting off so early I would have booked an earlier train, it would have been cheaper too. Ah well, too late now.

    If you can get a rounders/softball set that'd be good.

    I've got a training bat with a dent in it but no ball. If someone could bring a ball that'd be awesome.

    Is there anyway for Bengley to charge his camera on site? Is there a way to sweet talk the owners into letting him charge it?

    There is plugs in the washing/first aid room (as far as I remember) but I assume you're only expected to use them for a couple of minutes while you're in there.

    Stealthy 'hiding camera behind a sink' is required.

    You can get small battery packs that you charge from but I know the one I used to take camping (bought from a camping shop) was quite expensive, might not be worth it.
