No problem - Just as long as I have a rough idea of who's coming when, with whom and (in several cases) how often it'll all pan out alright I expect.

I'll drop each of you a note of my landline and my new mobile number etc, and we can take it from there, perhaps.

I think it'd be best if we did it properly and those who want to, turn up on Thursday night (get to the station and I'll come and collect you) ready for the off on Friday...

we'll have to sort out a time for when you, RF, turn up on Friday for Asylum - perhaps meet up on Friday afternoon in Margate (which is only a couple of train stops down from Hernia Bay) or... something. I don't mind staying sober on the Friday if it means using my car to make everyone's life easier. The Witchmobile is still very creaky, but with luck she'll last thru till her next MOT if I drive steady

BTW - is MMF going to stay over as well? I took it as read he would be although I haven't officially suggested it to him.

One more isn't going to make a lot of difference I'd have thought!smiley - biggrin

Right. Now apart from Earl Grey Tea, is there anything else I should know about dietry requirements for anyone? I know I'm pretty safe if it involves garlic for 2 Legs, but is there anything any of you lot can't eat/won't eat foodwise?

I'm not keen on liver, kidneys, rat, cat or dog.

Anything else should be fine.

Once you've figured which way is up 2 Legs, let me know what you're intending doing and I shall attempt to organise floor space/food, meeting up pointssmiley - ok

As long as we ca all meet up at some yet to be arranged time and venue inMargate on Good Friday, then it should all work out alrightsmiley - erm

This is a good point, and one that ocured to me, toosmiley - winkeye

I'd imagine trains on Good Friday will be a Sunday Service type of arrangement. Sporadic in other words

I was in Margate today, and the Festival opens at Midday on Good Friday - if you travelled down that day it'd mean one heck of an early start for yousmiley - yikes

What I'd suggest you do is get yourself to Hernia Bay on the Thursday afternoon/evening - it's a pretty straight run from Victoria on the Thursday evening - I can collect you from the station, no problem - just let me know roughly when you'll be arriving. Which reminds me, I ought to email you lot my new mobile, didn't I? I think I've found the number at last!

Did you get my last email, btw?

I think young Roymondo is going to out on the rat on the Thursday evening a bit further down the coast - I can either drive you there (wherever the "there" is) that evening, so you hook up with him and his mates, as where hs staying is (at a pinch) within walking distance of Margate... and re meet up on the Friday *in Margate..

or you can just stay over Thursday night (and possibly have a couple of bottles of wine or so) and I'll sort out train times to get us to Margate on the Friday - or if push comes to shove I'll drive us down to Margate

I like a drink, but it doesn't worry me if I have to be sober for chauffering duties

Let me know whats easiest/most practical for you and I'll work with it, OK?

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

smiley - bigeyes blimey... yeh... something like that smiley - biggrin I'll have to figure it out and things smiley - erm So I'll try and figure out my location prior to the meet soon, so I know where I'vm travelling from, if from here, you see, Londons nearby (50 mins or thereish) away, but If I'm travelling to London from a differnt location that bit itself will take over 2 hours smiley - ermsmiley - yikes and... something, yeh. and I can smiley - erm yeh I'll think about somethign smiley - biggrin

I *think* I get the gistsmiley - ok

If it'll help you with logistics and stuff, Victoria to Herne Bay takes around an hour and 20 minutes(ish) with possibly a change a Faversham if they're being mardy

Like I said, let me know what you want to do, and I'll work around it.

If you're not travelling from "home" where *will you be travelling from?

Or is that bit not set in stone yet, as such?

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

If I'm not travelling from home, I.E., Cambridge, then I'd be travelling from my Dads, in Lowestoft, Suffolk, though thinking about it, I'd much prefer to travel from here If I can, actually, even with dodgy sunday service on the Friday, if I were travleling from Cambridge, I'd still be able to get there middayish I recon without having to leave too early, I shoudl probably go check out some train times smiley - biggrinsmiley - erm well I'd recon it'd be nearly three hours from Cambridge, including taxiing to the station chanign about in London to get to the right stations etc and all that kinda thing smiley - biggrin My heads not on properly today, I'll ahve to have a proper think about this... Did you say you'd sent me an Email? which Email address did you use, the hotmail one? smiley - ermsmiley - run

Beer Festival starts at Noon on the Friday 2 Legs, so at the latest we should all be met up (probably outside Margate Station forecourt) by say 11.30am I reckon

I'm going away for a week, but can you liase with Roy, RF and MMF, as they are the other major culpritts in this venture and let me know what/when/who/how, etc at some juncture?

Ta!
