i still need to find replacement poles after several broke on the last night courtesy of hurricane irene
it was a bit of a shame - cause everyone packed up and left on the monday - nobody fancied another night of gale force winds!
God dammit ... i looked last week but didnt book it , just gone back on the site to book my live like a pikey luxury weekend experience and the price has almost doubled ... didnt take Haven very long to cotton on that it's the IM weekend
And just so you all know....
although I'm back on here after three weeks away... that doesn't mean I'm signing up for next year. No it doesn't. Definitely not.
GB you soo know you'll be doing it mate
Just cost me £311 for the three nights ... same spec was less than £200 a week ago <kicks himself for not just booking the thing in the first place >
i know I wish to have a social life this year unlike 2011. After splitting with the OH I really need to try and meet more people in and around London, rather than living in the relationship/IM training bubble that I was this year
I also need to bare in mind that I could get moved quite easily to a new location in a couple of months or so, which would probably leave me living in hotels and therefore make cycling difficult!
Saying that though, I do like the idea of doing the double with yourself rather than just doing one. No point building all of that fitness and letting it go to waste on an easy course like the Outlaw
Sorry guys, paid £165 ...
So it was mentioned that Kiln Park was walking distance...could I get some clarification? I've looked at it online, and it looks like you've got to cross tracks, the golf course, etc. I'm not worried about me, but my wife will have a 9yo, 7yo, and 8 month old (in a buggy) to get to the finish line from our rental.
Is it an easy walk for her?
Thanks for your advice. Considering some hotel options in town as well...any advice? Anything to avoid? This is great...you guys are a big help.
One last question...any way I can incorporate some Canada into the Pirate kit (or vice versa)?
I stayed at the Fourcroft which overlooks the North Beach where the swim start was - my wife and daughter watched from the bedroom at 7am before making their way down to see me after lap 1. I expect IMW will keep the swim at North Beach due to the positive reviews but can't be sure (the long course weekend training event in June has confirmed it will use North Beach).
They were really accomodating and set aside a meeting room to store bikes, laid on a great breakfast from 4am etc.
After this years goggle catastrophe. i'll all signed up for 2012.
thanks for the room Iron Pingu you're a star.
it was great to meet you all there this year now i'm finally signed up to the forum.
i would have signed up ages ago but took a long time thinking up a forum name.

Oi ! It's not that embaressing, no, not at all! I like the name WND. Double goggles this year
one of my favourite moments from this year was asking you what your forum name was and getting a rather embarrassed ...."errmmm...pingu pongu"
i actually don't thinks its too bad a name at all - was only funny because of your embarrassment
good to see you about WND!! - you'll ace it this time
