Hmm... now that Ryan Air flies directly from my city to uk (standsted)... My dad lives in London, I could stay at his place... hmm hmm... only problem would be to get some time off from work, some extra money, and figure out how could I move between places there...

Gotta think of this

Midlands

Would love a beer, but am a little restricted traveling wise as I'm out of work at the mo, bummer! But if you guys get anywhere near Sheffield I'd love to meet up, sounds great!

right guys - I dont think this will work unless a few of you guys are willing to travel a bit.

Myself and dave are willing so it would be nice if people showed a little willing and would move more then 4 yards from there doorstep.

We all work and would all like to just walk to the local kebab house after and pop of to bed but this sadly wont be an option.

And if you are under the thumb a little from the mrs then bring her along.... Kev loves the ladies

OK then - Pick a Venue and a date, and will see if I can make it.
Just may be difficult because I work shifts (Work weekends some weeks )
Maybe Midlands area would be a good idea so that none of us have to travel that far? just a suggestion though.....

Oh and Chris_H, no worries, if i'm going, then I can take you in my beemer - Sheffield is only 1/2Hr away from me. (In fact prob 20 mins since I got this beemer )
