Started packing yesterday.

Dispite all my efforts to downsize it looks like it'll take 2 trips to get everything from the carsmiley - sadface Thats the downside of going alone noone to share the lugging withsmiley - doh...still next yr I'll (hopefully) have my mum with me and everyone knows old ladies have amazing strengthsmiley - laugh. Might have another wrestle with my sleeping bag/compression sack when I get backsmiley - ok

Feeling more nervous than excited now, paranoia has finally started kicking in...but I still cant wait to get in get the tent up and collapse outside it drinking pimmssmiley - silly

I'm going *up* (everywhere is up from heresmiley - winkeye) on Wednesday morning ish so I should be there by lunchtime (touch wood - just found out that the locks wont open on my carsmiley - yikes so RAC man dependant).

Didn't zarniwoop say he didn't know if he could make any meet because he might be working?

Thursday 8pm sounds good...as for where I'm not sure (I'll probably spend a lot of the time lost - wont recognise it without the mud) but the meeting point or similar would probably be bestsmiley - erm (sorry I'm crap at making decisions)...

i'll text you when we get there, if you do need a hand with luggage, let us know! smiley - smiley

So if we can find the meeting point at 8pm on thursday then you might get to meet Metal Chicken and I. OK I will wear one of the H2G2 T Shirts I've got to help with the recognition.

I *will* be wearing my favourite hat, it's cream and sort of like a fishing hat (round with a flat top and a flat rimsmiley - erm not a good description sorry) and very old looking. I *may* (weather dependent) be wearing my harry potter top - it's red and says "You know who" and has two snake eyes - one over each nipplesmiley - laugh.

The RAC man crawled through the boot of my car and got the locks open so my transport is back onsmiley - ok

I might not be around till even later,as transport is looking a little dodgy.
I may have to do the tried and tested Bristol method of getting to Glastonbury by standing on the road I grew up on and holding my thumb out until a VW camper stops... Or a hippy bus, or anything really... Its always worked for friends before...

Bristol is really been hit by the lack of tickets-and the lack of fence jumping... You can normally feel the run up to Glastonbury in the air, everyone talks about it in the pub, but this year its not...

bob, i think theres a shuttle form bristol straight to the gate. i'd come and pick you up if we were going on the same day, and it wasnt in the wrong direction! smiley - sorry just text us when you're ready-i'll let you know where we are.
smiley - wow 1 day to go!!! smiley - wow

Which meeting point? I've just had a look at the interactive map on the festival site http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk and there are several. If we all turn up at a different one then it'll be no meet up smiley - winkeye

*Shouts about the stone circle*

I always arrange to meet people at a specific time actually *in* the stone circle, rather than *at* the stone circle, which is quite a big area...

Oooops, back in the day there was only one meeting point (at a crossroads in the market).

Stone Circle sounds good though, hoping I can find it this year though (bloody friends moaning about the mud and wanting to go back to the main stage foiled my plans last timesmiley - grr).

If you see a 23 yr old with brown hair, a harry potter t shirt and a white hat on wandering around looking like a psycho, dont worry - it's because tomorrow is the first time I can have caffiene again in 2 weeks so I'll be bouncing off the wallssmiley - biggrin

8'ish at the stone circle on thursday? i'll not be able to look at photos as i am at work and not supposed to be on this message board anyway (hence me not being around for a while), im going to be camping up ther greenfields with my dad so we'll be near the circle and im sure if the powers that be destine me to be there then i will. To help in identifying me i am 20yrs old, male, have biggish long and will probably be wearing a stripey hoopey kind of thing top; it all looks like being a f*****g belter (cant contain excitement, had to swear)so if i dont meet up with u's i hope you all have a magical festival.
