They'll have a good time because you're not going. If you went it would be a catalogue of unmitigated disaster. You just leave a trail of carnage behind you :evil: .

Point taken. I'll be a little more forthright with my opinions in future, just to save any misunderstanding.

The East Anglian gave us chance to check a few things. Like whether the luggage would fall off.....
It never moved! :D

Brilliant.
Those routes could come in very handy.
Did you always camp or were there any hotels that you stayed in that were ok ?
