Somewhere to stand Sunday night would be ideal, cheers Nash.

Unfortunately the earliest I can get to Guildford is going to the train that gets in at 19:08... :/ Sorry to put a spanner in the works!

I'm not going to argue with you making my life easier! :P Is that still going to be saving time? I can get my ass to Lidl (On London Road, A4) to save doing quite so much of that loopy bit

Adds 15 minutes to journey to save 1 hour in departure time.


Or we just abandon Joe. Both of these are options.

Alex if six is best you can do we will take it.

There is also Beth to get from a services near Brum.

Alex / Miller this is for you two to argue the toss over, I don't drive so I don't really care which way the bus goes or what time I get there. Bear in mind it's an unlimited bus so we can at least be doing 70 (cough 85 cough) on motorways

I have a 9am-6pm leadership course on Friday. So depending on what time other people can make, gives me plenty of time or no time.

I just thought what I suggested would get us there sooner. It's easier for me to wait for Joe and leave at 7. Up to you Miller

Sick. Tour of car parks it is.

Starting with channies, then the station, followed by Newbury and finally a services for some dinner and Beth.

As long as someone has the directions and some Matt style tunes we will get there.

Nash I will ring you on friday when I get to G.

Cheers guys!! Let me know if this still goes ahead... And also, any idea what route you're taking so I can pick a service station on the way (to hopefully get dropped off to)? Also what's the situation with tents at present?

Warwick is always nice. But it is south of Brum.

If you want to pick one make it on the route Alex posted above. Also make it have tasty dinner options. My vote would be warwick as a sensible distance from G for a dinner stop.

Right game on!


Miller and I will load bus. Meet at the GSA car park at 5:50. Ali G meet us there ready to go?


Twindle we'll then get you from back door of station.


Joe where do you want getting from in Newbury? The less of a detour the better obvs.


Beth: I'll bring two club tents. One for you and Lauren, the other for Ali G and Twindle.

Okay so what is looking like the easiest idea is:
You guys stop before Brum for food if you want to.
Take the M42 exit at junction 4, for a place called Shirley. Aim for Cranmoore Drive (B904RZ).
I can park there (housemate's workplace). About 5 mins from junction exit.
You can then rejoin the m42 at junction 4 again.
Also there is a McDonald's, massive tesco, garden centre and petrol station nearby should you need these facilities  8) let me know what you think? A tent is much appreciated Nash!

That seems fine. It is 1hr 24 mins from the lidl in Newbury. Sounds like the ideal place for a mcbitetoeat.

I'm lovin' it.

Garden centre's are useful. You can buy some outside solar lights for your tent like me on Splosh so you know where your tent is when you are pissed.

See you at GSA. Time should be no issue as we were just told we'll finish earlier than timetabled.

This okay, you can get ? https://goo.gl/maps/GtwFCYGv78J2 Should be enough space to rotate the bus. You got a rough ETA?

Also I can't remember if we need shit tickets or not, might be worth grabbing some if there's any in the locker?

Could you stick a club tent in when you pack the bus please? Cheers

I'll text someone when I'm on the train home to confirm when I'll be ready to leave, I'm aiming for 6.
