Discussion, news and info on the forthcoming convention in Leamington Spa.

How are you getting to the convention?

Tue Oct 09, 2012 8:14 pm

Well for me I am currently on an oil rig off the coast of Nigeria, praying that my relief gets his flights from the USA next week.
My passport is currently away to get a visa so I can get out of the country.
I have a flight booked for next Tuesday night that I won't make as the crew change chopper never gets here in time to catch the flight to Lagos, so once I get off the rig I'll spend a night in Port Harcourt then get a flight the next day to Lagos then Amsterdam then Aberdeen. So that'll be Thursday I get home.
Friday morning get in motor and drive the 500 miles to Lemmers.
Of course there are so many things that can go wrong, main one being the visa not being issued which means I'll be stuck in Port Harcourt till I get my passport back!
Fingers crossed.
Thanked: 4

That is seriously impressive

Zaz and I have just 65 miles to drive which should only take about 90 minutes.

I'll be driving up from Margate on Friday afternoon once everyone is home from school.

Judging on factors like the M2, M25 and beyond - I have absolutely no clue how long it will take me!

Oh, standard thingy - if anyone wants a lift there drop me a PM. Nobody ever takes me up on these things but it never hurts to ask.
