Posted:A taxi from Poole to Holton Lee is around 20 (a bit steep, it's only 7 miles!!! WTF)

Taxi from Wareham 8

the 142/143 bus from Wareham train startion (check with driver as some go past site and some don't, check on timetable for the bus that stops at Upton, which is village past our festival and say you want to get off at Holton Lee which is on the way to Upton. Yay Dorset! )

The we have two shops nearby. A 24 hour garage about half a mile from site enterance and just past that on the other side of the road is a shop with alcohol and goodies.

Hope this helps and see you soon

Matt

(apart from the big grey bits)

In other news, we have managed to convince Mech to come down for the Saturday night. The only problem is his car "ist explodiert" (has explooooded - kaboom and bang bang). Thankfully, he wasnt in it at the time. Our sources reveal that his car had 4 wheels, and there is the talk of one more in the boot.

This means that he needs a lift from Southampton Kite festival to the site on Saturday eve-uh-ning.

Can we have any offers please because we would really like to see him there.

Spank you for your time. spank

Anyone saying yes will get big hugs, chocolate, and petrol money. ubbrollsmile

Still going on about how much I loved Chimaera biggrin

Demi says thanks for the hugs and compliments.... although she hasn't forgiven Dave yet for the evil eyes comment (you were the only one she looked at like that Dave. I wonder why? ubblol )

I really enjoyed seeing everyone and watching everyone playing.

Thankyou F.L.A.M.E!!
