Well a week to go I can barely contain myself!

Anyone else got a spare room looking like this?

For the past two weeks I've been wetting myself with excitement! All I have to do is go out tomorrow and get some food to bring, a sleeping mat and some other provisions.

I have sorted out all my kit now apart from assembling my rations in a single bag. Excitement levels will rise after the weekend. Don't ask...

Cheers

Blimey, hats off to our well prepared Soviet comrades!

I discovered I had rather more sorting out to do last night than I anticipated, however all the gear is now finally packed and all I need to do is charge some batteries and make my sandwiches. For some reason I seem to have decided to bring all my 'survival' gear intended for Hut 19, it all fits in the Bergen anyway.

Only one more full day at work, so call it a 6 verging on 7.

Cheers
Martin

Car packed on Monday, as I work in Leeds now and will be going from there instead of God's county. Work a total a#se though, so trundling along at a 6. Clear the desk and I should be able to nudge that up nicely by Friday afternoon. :good:

Yep, it is preoccupying my time.

most stuff sorted.

Just food to get (Friday), spare battery to charge, sort sleep and wash kit.

Oh and a shave. I've been playing in a Victorian Sci-fi larp so have a fullish beard. Time to shave it down to something more acceptable for a WW2 Tommy. It has been demanded by friends that I go for the service tash/pr0n tash! :whistle: :giggle:

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.
