Me, Paraffin Fairy and a few other Burnt Toasters have been always talking about doing a UK tour of all the poi nights around the country in a week.



There seems to be at least one happening every day of the week (just in London...) so am pretty sure it's do-able...



Excluding the London days (which we can do anytime) these are the ones that seem to be happening after a breif trawl through the boards - can anyone fill in the gaps or add othere nights in so I can try and work out a proper circular-ish route?



Monday: Edinburgh

Tuesday: Bournemouth (Although not travelling from Scotland to B'mouth in a day!)

Wednesday:Bristol

Thursday: Nottingham

Friday: Canterbury

Saturday:

Sunday: Netley (Southampton - which is conveniently close to home to finish off smile )



How exciting smile

Edinbrough to Bournemouth is only 457 miles (736KM) so is easily acheivable if you have a super sonic car that fly's, of course you won't need it if you borrow my flux capacitor which I don't mind lending for a small fee wink

Ah. Maybe not then. I'm no match for the wrath of Bluecat or BamBam. Or both! eek biggrin

Will the journeys be by car? I know the Burnt Toast piggybank probably isn't overflowing, but surely there must be some other way around this? confused

Yeah, it'll have to be by car - that many train/bus tickets would be mucho expensive...
Plus means we can bring as many toys as can be squooshed into a car smile

I texted Frodo when I was in Bournemouth last weekend and got no reply, so he doesn't get to play with us anymore wink ubblol

Well, how about cheating a little... ubbangel

...as the Saturday on your itinerary still seems to be free, why don't you let us know which week you'll be doing the tour and we'll ask regulars whether they'd be prepared to gather on the Saturday rather than the Tuesday, in honour of Burnt Toast?

They're an enthusiastic crowd, so we may even be able to get people together on the Saturday and hold the Tuesday gathering as usual too. Plus, you'd only be down the road from Southampton, your Sunday destination biggrin

I like my toast unburnt. But I'm in nostralia right now so I don't mind if you tour england with your over cooked bread, thank you.



I've never been to the UK. I'm going there soon though. At the end of July I think.

I have my sidekick now. I think I call him Sidekick!!

Durbs, I've told you already that we're going to fly so that we can fit in Bournemouth and Edinborough!!! I can't remember exactly how this is going to work but when we spoke about it we did work something out which sounded feesable!! I thought we were going to include Ireland too....

Next year its going to be a world tour biggrin

No I mean poi!!! It will have to be after you and Mrs Durbs get back!! That was a kind of just a nice idea - don't think I'll have the money to do the poi world tour for a few years yet!!
