Who Has Transport To Get To Games?

This thread is over three months old. Please be sure that your post is appropriate as it will revive this otherwise old (and probably forgotten) thread.

Seems to be a lot of people playing Airsoft who are restricted in their ability to travel to games.

 

I'm curious how many members have their own motor road transport to travel to longer distance games and how many don't i.e have to rely on lifts or public transport ?

My dad will take me, he thinks its actually a good hobby and sport (quite surprised really). A lot of mates do the one way thing where their parents takes a load of people to the site and then another parent brings them all back. If I want to do a garden battle or whatever they are called I cycle pretty much everywhere in that sense, I find it to only be 15 minutes later (albeit quite sweaty) if I push hard.

I rely on lifts, my dad used to be a driving instructor so I can drive pretty well, I just never took my test because I'd have to do it in my dad's car; but I can't because he's not a recognised instructor anymore.

Plus the test has changed recently so he couldn't teach me the new bits.

Just never got around to booking any lessons with a current instructor and sorting my test out. I'll have to do my theory again too as it expires after 2 years... Even though the practical test doesn't :huh:

DVLA logic.

I drive, me and my mates take it in turn giving each other lifts though to save a bit of money and occasionally help out other regulars who can't.

I drive me and my mates as I live further away from our main site - easier for me to pick them up along the way. Sometimes I'll give a lift to people who live nearby who are going to the same site if they ask - so long as they pay me for petrol money of course.

Sometimes I take the bus,usually when my dad isn't around. If I get up earlier then usual I go by bike. If my dad's around he gives me a lift but I drive over,I'm a few months away from my provisional and he's been teaching me for a few years now so he say's it's grand. Been driving like that for the past year or so and no issues so far.

I and all my mates drive.

 

Hardly surprising so many don't though when you take into consideration the low average age of airsofters...

i don't drive but thankfully Ironsight is only a 15 mins or so drive away from me so i can usually get a cheapish taxi or a lift if some of my friends are going.

To be fair we usually end up in mates 4x4 just because we all insist on taking so much gear with us it's the only car it fits in! I'm sure we don't actually need three assault rifles and a support weapon each but...y'know. :)
