I shall be there. Mildenhall virgin me; although I have read about it!

I'll be up on Monday. I've somehow been volunteered to make tea at the Countess of Warwick's Show at Little Easton for the rest of the weekend - at least I've the AUK organiser skills for that job...

Camping booked, couldn't commit early as I wasn't sure I could go.

Sods law! Been waiting 8 months for a hospital appointment and it comes for the 29th August.

Strange but the only trains I can get back to Worcester from Ely on the 28th are all through London.

There was a derailment on the line just West of Ely earlier this week, and there is a chance of replacement bus service from Peterborough if track repairs over run. They hope to have the line open early next week.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

I think it may be something to do with what you say. I have been told there are no trains between Ely and Peterborough that weekend due to some urgent track repairs.

Managed to get a ticket for £17 all the way and a bike reservation from Paddington. It also includes an underground journey from Kings Cross to Paddington but I doubt if they will take a loaded bike.

I have cycled that route across London a few times so it doesn't pose any problems.

I set off tomorrow am for this. It takes me 3 days to get there but I do like the MH rally.

I could actually do this. If they've got any pitches left, and I can get my act together, I hope to see some of you there :-)

Circle/H&C Line should not present problems in that regard, but as you say, it's probably easier to cycle.

There are some pitches still available, I enquired for someone else last week.

My Achilles and knee are playing up and my car-camping packing mojo is notably absent.  This is suboptimal.  I'm still less broken than barakta, who overdid it for a job interview this morning (shades of Long Itch).  This is even more suboptimal.

We'll be there.  I'll probably spend a lot of time sitting down...

That all sounds less than ideal. Hope you both recover on the way.

See you tomorrow.

Still rather migrainous but reckon we should come anyway, we can always bail and getting off screens might do me some good. Sunglasses on standby and I can walk albeit like a drunkard and I am likely to flail and not quite fall a lot if the last two weeks is anything to go by...

I think we're expecting to arrive at evening meal time ish.

I won't be there, instead I'll be in Bank Holiday Train Hell. 4 changes to get from Liverpool to Harwich with a loaded bike.


Hope you all have a lovely time.

We're setting off now.  Feel like I'm letting the side down a bit by not bringing a recumbent...

Yay for Luke & Donuts!  I hope there is adequate TEA to wash it down.

Bladder also greetings from Kerry, aka Ceri (see Wowbagger's Folly).

I was woken up by a moth, which has been attracted by the light before we turned it off at about 11.30, becoming entangled in my hair. Its corpse has just fallen out.
