Hi all

 

Me and Liam porter and Luke will all be heading down from Kings Lynn on the Friday morning, if anyone is in need of a seat there is one spare with plenty of space for luggage and we are all just going to contribute toward fuel, so if anyone wants a seat there's fairly cheap one going :)

 

On another note its looking like its going to be an awesome weekend :)

Can't kill them!

 

Totally - she lives in Manchester and I'm in Nottingham. As far as living with goes, I've been there, seen it, done it, and worn the flipping T-Shirt out! Never again... but that does mean that when either of us travels to see the other, the rest of our lives have to go on the back burner. She'll have my pretty much undivided attention from about 19:30 Fri-12:00 Mon.

 

Good point Craig. I've actually got one of those little compasses that are made to go on 20mm straps attached to my vest - but I rarely use it, lol!

Yeah +1 on the compass note, from what I've heard it sounds like a fairly big site!

 

And I wouldn't know, but mine lives in the same town so not too far to travel! I'm working til 10 tonight but to be honest I'll definitely be on after, or we can just leave it til Monday.

 

And does anyone have any large-ish maps of the area?

I don't actually have a printer, but my g/f does so I immediately wondered:

 

Are the maps they give us any good?

 

Is it worth downloading what they offer/getting my g/f to print it/them?

 

Is there a good satelite view and, if so, can one of you veterans add labels to it to make a gucci map for us?

Well the numbers are up to 1512 now, but Delta are still slightly behind. However, I'm sure our cunning and tactical-ness can make up for it!

I know that everyone is swapping numbers so that we can all contact eachother, but we are still all going to arrive at different times. When we get there how are we actually going to find each other?

In a crowd of 1500 people and their cars and tents, when the patches are so small? Good luck to everyone!

 

Has anyone got a flag or banner that will be visible from the rest of the camp area?

Can't wait! But on another note, does anyone have any experience with WE G39's? I keep trying to load mine up with gas, but I get 5 rounds off and it's dead with no gas.
