OC I am arriving tomorrow but am staying with a friend so will probably meet you on the beaches (very Chuchillian) on Weds morning??
Is it too early to get trolleyed and shout at my laptop?
Its never too late for that Ditchy
I should be at the hotel around 8 tomorrow evening and will happily help lower the tone
Apologies if this has been asked before but is anyone staying at Club Oceano (Pirate Towers) taking a track pump? I rather foolishly have opted for a bike box which has rather reduced the weight for anything other than frame and wheels. Equally foolishly I do not appear to possess another bag large enough to accommodate my track pump.
I believe there will be one Dermot
Didnt you suggest this hotel....
And then you stay somewhere else.... i like your style
I not as daft as i'm cabbage looking (which was a very old saying in yesteryear that has just popped back into my mind) !!
OC - as the advanced party, please would you advise if the crappy internet is free, or paid for? I may put some internet access on my phone in advance if I know the score.
I am well under with my suitcase and I think my bike is a smidge under 20kg too, so all is well. I've just moved the huge back of nutrition from bike to suitcase to even it up. I'm happy.
Dermot, last count suggested there are likely to be two if not three track pumps in our party.
My suitcase is heavier than my bike bag and I have just stuffed the latter with a tonne of bubble wrap ... just hope that it dosnt burst all over the place
30 euro for 10 days, 15 for 5???
Been fine for laptops, phone a bit flakey but great today
Shocked that it is suggested the people meet at Ruta 66, that would be Tripey HQ, or certainly is on the Sunday afterwards, maybe an invasion could be launched that night though?
Do you think it wise to launch an invasion with 10% of ones army ??
I think we're both aware that the word wise is rarely used in any sentence that has my name in it as well
Good point well presentedI hope the motorways are kind to me in the morning, leaving in plenty of time
Thanks OC, I will compare that to what I get if I go direct to the phone company.
Safe journey Meldymoo.
My phone company is £1.99 per day - not unlimited but more than I will ever needMousey, you are O2 as well aren't you?
Just popping in to wish you all Good Luck and hoping you have a great time out there.
Don't forget to keep the rest of us back home fully informed as to ALL the goings-on before, during, and after race day !
Happy travels to those heading off in the big silver bird in the sky tomorrow
Sock it to 'em, guys ...
To all travelling off, have a good journey and great race and I'll see you there.
Hope the journey over is hassle free guys
Will be following on line at some point on Sunday
Race strong and safe everyone
See you there Sue, are you staying at the Oceans apartments too?
My pirate T shirt still hasn't arrived!!!! Post arrives normally just before 10am. I want to leave about 9.30. Arse!
I know I'm slow SA, but I'm hoping to have finished before Sunday!
No Iron Pingu, I'm staying at Club La Santa; I'm going with friends who like it up there so we've hired a car for the week (dead cheap) and basing ourselves there.
Have a great race!
We're leaving for Lanza tomorrow Can't wait...
