Hi y'all-

Susan of DT and I are going to be in England August 11 to 28. We'd like to meet as many Mudcatters as we can. We'll be at Whitby Week, but we're trying to work out a schedule for the preceding week and the couple of days after.

Let us know who's feeling sociable.

I'll be at Whitby, and look forward to seeing Dick and Susan. (There's the daily newsletter to keep people in touch with any late developments. And there's bound to be a few computers around somewhere, so a thread on the Mudcat itself could be a good way of keeping in touch.)

I can't provide accommodation in Harlow - but can advise about anything that is happening around here There should be a few sessions and suchlike. (Though festivals and holidays tend to deplete numbers - and Broadstairs is on 11th-18th, the week after Sidmouth.)

When you get to Whitby festival look out for Mudcat Badges - produced by (badger and tig. There are likely to be a fair few mudcatters about. We usually spend a lot of time in the informal "fringe" of the festival. We particularly recommend the Tap & Spile (near the Train and Bus Stations) for good beer and company. Keep an eye out for us - watch out for a small yellow "rubber" duck in a tankard - I am usually nearby! We are also intending to host a barbecue during the week, and details will be found at the Tap & Spile. You would be most welcome. Quack! Geoff the Duck

Does anyone know how good the train connections are between Towersey and Gatwick on a Sunday?

Bron - we are talking about the week before Whitby, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday August 15 or so. Would this work for you? This part of the week is still pretty tentative.

Susan/Dick

Do you want to stay in Herts. both Saturday and Sunday nights (12/13)? I'll sort out with Kevin/Alan if you can confirm.

Afraid Gatwick is almost the worst possible place for train connections. Somebody may well be able to drive you round the M25 though.

We're more or less on the Kings Cross line (to North East England and Scotland) and also close to the main London North East road (the A1), one of which you'll need to take to get to Whitby. You could always put up for the night with us on the way up or down (welcome) and we could arrange transport. Towersey isn't very far away either. London 30-45 mins by train. You could use us as a fallback failing other transport/accommodation arrangements.

Cheers!

Susan, there is a railway station a few miles from Towersey, with a direct service to London and I am sure we could get you there on Sunday, once in London the Tube system will get you to Victoria, where there is a fast efficient service to Gatwick, so shouldnt be any problem there the same arriving if you havent got transport, if you arrive at Haddenham station and get a Taxi to your B&b and then simply make for the Three Horseshoes at Towersey, hopefully , by then you will know a few of us by sight and will know who you are looking for.We will give you detailed instructions and maps nearer the time.

You can get good inexpensive food there and they sell Real Ale and the music is usually pretty good. Any other catters heading to Whitby could use it as a stop over.

Yes to the jumper cables and the warm oatmeal, but I only have WD40 - light machine oil - of 'Red Dwarf' fame (gosh, what is that lovely fragrance. simper, WD40...) will that do? We can add garlic oil or rosemary oil if you like. Got some extra virgin olive oil (how do they know they are virgins??)

Sunday 13th is a session night in the Half Moon in Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire starting about 8.30. The beer's good as well as the craic, and there are sandwiches passed around at the crucial time. I'd recommend fitting it into the busy schedule.

One thing to consider is how far Dick and Sue want to take in things that would be happening anyway, or for people to line up something that wouldn't be happening otherwise.

She is quite near London, but I'm actually in it!! Gomez is recovering nicely after the last time he butted in, and the cats are REALLY grumpy, especially the one that sleeps in the laundry basket.

My cat will just sleep on you, if you give it the chance. She is monunmentaly grumpy just now, as we are shutting her catflap at night (that way she gets a fighting chance at not having her grub hijacked) so she picks at it, keeping us awake (hence the posting at 5.00am GMT) and wearing her claws out!

About 8 hours - more if you have a really dodgy car. This is allowing for 3 - 5 20 min breaks and another 30 to get lost in, and for keeping to the speed limit.

It takes about 6 from East London to Whitby, and about 1 1/2 from East London to Towersey along the M25 on a good day (allow extra for M25 - it is a crappy piece of road), so that makes about 8.

Thanx Liz. So the Friday is pretty well lost to both Whitby and Towersey. We will have to get to a town with a car rental near Whitby early Friday and start down to Towersey. No luck yet on booking a room near Towersey, but I have not yet exhausted the possibilities. Now that we decided on a car, we can be further away.

Since we will be at the Champlain Valley Festival in Vermont this coming weekend, I am trying to finish up the arrangements.

ITINERARY SO FAR:
Thursday Aug 10 - Fly to Gatwick, arriving 10 pm. Pick up car. B&B in Horley near airport.
Friday Aug 11 - visit people in Brighton and vicinity (music, but not mudcat)
Saturday Aug 12 - Drive to Micca's in London, pub nite at Black Lion in Plaistow, seeing Micca, Liz, Gervase, Morticia,....Stay with Micca
Sunday Aug 13 to Hertfordshire, seeing Ian, Alan, Kevin. stay with one of them
Monday Aug 14 - fairly clear at this time
Tuesday Aug 15 - Drive to Welshpool, see Bron and stay near her.
Wednesday Aug 16 - drive toward Leeds, open
Thursday Aug 17 - drop off car. connect with Bill Sables. pub sing at Jug. stay with Bill
Friday Aug 18 to Friday Aug 25 at Whitby, camping, meeting lots of mudcatters
Friday Aug 25 - get lift to town with car rental in morning. drive to Towersey
Saturday Aug 26 - at Towersey
Sunday Aug 27 - drive to Horley/Gatwick
Monday Aug 28 - fly home.

Or that's it until it changes...

Sorrow for usurping the thread, susan and Dick. Hope you have a grand time.

Liz and Morticia we won't need a place to stay just friends to make music with or share a pint during that week. But thanks for the offers.

I'll pm the details closer to the trip.

cheers, Fortunato (Chance)

There's a good tuesday night session at the sloop in Barton on humber, not a vast distance from whitby. Give it a go if you have the opportunity.Mainly fiddles but some singing, and the guiness is ok.

We leave Thursday morning. The itinerary is still pretty much what I posted last week. We have pinned down a place to stay at Towersey. Any last minute e-mails, please send in the next day or so. Thank you all. Hope to meet a lot of you.
