Yeah, but I didn't scare off no cow tippers though!

I'm yet undecided about it. Would like to go but depends on fund$ situation at the time. My tent is just a glorified sleeping bag, you can't even sit upright in it

I am in this boat too, and still unsure whether I'll be there. I was a firm definite a while back but things have changed quite a bit and will be well up in the air by the time it comes round.

If I make it (looking 60/40 in favour at the moment) I'll bring a friend and his own 2 wheels.

PS - my tent is a bit like a zipseal freezer bag, in blue

Don't want to send this thread on a downwards spiral really, but I'm less than certain to, well long story short, I was comitted to go, however

1.) I've found out that it's my first full week back (as I'm on a graduated return to work)

2.) I'm not even at work that week as I'm on a Cisco course
3.) I don't know even where it's going to be yet
4.) the exam is friday afternoon ( so I can't book the day off)
5.) first course in the last couple of years so don't really want to pi** off work really
6.) I've forgetton a load of the stuff I'll need for this course, so it'll be heavy going anyway.
7.) I hate exams, but always work hard at passing them so I probably wont sleep for the few days before.

So come friday evening, I'll be burnt out, knackered and have to ride down alone, admittedly it's only 3 hours or so, but then I wasn't planning on doing the rideout anyway, so should I just come down Saturday morning, but then if I'm not doing the rideout what's the rush, so should I make it the afternoon /evening time ? but if I do that is it really worth all that travelling just for one night in a tent then back home

Lots of reasons to go, and lots not to.

I wish I could be more positive about it, but then there are a number of realistic reasons not to be.

We'll see.

Cheers Mark.

But hey, look on the bright side, that looks like a huge step on the road back to some sort of normality... Bizarre as it seems to me now I remember being so pleased to get back to work. Now, I'm considering breaking my other leg
