    Does it need mentioning? Isn't it a given?

    My favorite part is the "work hard to buy cool stuff that you can't use because you're working..."

    I was going to mention the excess number of beers, late night propping up of the bar, late night trips to 'local clubs' coming back in the early hours and multiple failed attempts to awaken a slumbering Scotsman before midday on Friday but wasn't sure if we were supposed to.

    I think that camping would be a good idea. Perhaps we could get a tent hire company in to do tents for those who do not have one. I would like one of those big Bell tents but with the wooden beams.

    For those coming the day before and the day after I have worked out train fares to/from London:

    Euston [EUS], Preston Lancs [PRE], Crewe [CRE]

    OUTBOUND Wed 28 May
    10:43 EUS - PRE (3hrs) @ £20
    12:30 EUS - PRE (2hrs) @ £20

    RETURN Fri 30 May
    13:17 PRE - EUS (3hrs) @ £38
    17:58 PRE - EUS (2hrs) @ £29
    18:17 PRE - EUS (3hrs change @ CRE) @ £20

    Tickets are Advance Fares for specific trains and correct at time of posting. Check with National Rail before you travel at National Rail Enquiries - Official source for UK train times and timetables

    Personally I think 12:30 up and 13:17 back are the best bet. Waiting until the evening to get back from Preston will sink that extra tenner into the shops instead of getting home. :P
