    Who is doing this again?

    @Colm and I are in a pair and @Ben is doing it solo, anyone else?

    What are the travel plans as well? I know this has been discussed on WA, but it’s hard to keep track.

    • Are we setting up camp on the 18th? - Are my Disco and @Ben ‘s California camper are the motors that are going.
    • do people need to stop at ours before/after?
    • @luker & @Josh are you two coming to be partybois/pit bitches?
  • I'll be aiming to arrive early on the Friday to try and get a spot on the fire road.

    @luker who did you email about lights last year?

    And @rob wrt your question on WA about parking;
    "To gain access to the site you will need to collect your team's Parking Pass from Square Wheels in Strathpeffer between 12.00 and 17.30 on Friday or between 18.00 and 22.00 at the site entrance on Friday evening or between 07.00 and 09.00 at the site entrance on Saturday morning.

    You cannot collect your pass before 12.00 on Friday and you won't be able to get onto the site without it. One Parking Pass per Team ONLY."

    Each of us will have to pick up a token.

  • Ta

    What team names did we use?

  • I used Outliers CC

  • I called them last year on 01798 839300.

    I’ve got a joystick light that someone can borrow, same ones they’ll be hiring out

    Planning to come up as party boi / kettle bro, however which day will depend on work & what hols I can take. Likely that I’ll meet you in Inverness on Friday for the pre lash

  • @Colm what are we called?

  • Ok

    I’m sure one of us can divert to collect you on Friday

    I reckon get there around lunchtime on Friday to get passes and secure top party spot

  • So @colm has used as our team name

    He also ordered a medium T-shirt....

    So @Ben let’s see your screenshot?

  • @Rob we're

    I'm planning to get either the sleeper up thursday night or normal train early friday morning.

    Agree re setting up camp on the fireroad on Friday.

    Tennants super and draw for first rider in a random hostel on Friday night as is tradition?

  • I'll be staying off the 10+% imperial IPAs this year. I was planing on camping the night before, to keep the spot/befriend people for when I need help/do well in the race.

    I will have a preparatory super tennants mind, but only if it comes from a plastic bag of assorted cans.

  • Will be differentiated by the "." before the "cc"

  • And by the level of hypothermia/frostbite.

  • We'll have too much super tennants in us to freeze.

    That was the mistake our neighbour made last year.

  • Sleeper Thursday night and @Ben and I can collect you and @luker on Friday morning before going to square wheels.

    Then we can play spot the “.” And set up camp

    Then Super Tenants clear bag lotto can start around campfire, while partboi @luker dances in his survival suit and expensive mittens

  • That was the mistake our neighbour made last year.

    “My son may be dead”

  • Speaking of mittens...handle bar mittens, how likely am I to snap a wrist if I have them on and inevitably fall off?

    @̶r̶o̶b̶,̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶d̶i̶s̶c̶o̶ ̶a̶ ̶c̶r̶e̶w̶ ̶c̶a̶b̶?̶ ̶
    Never mind, getting it confused with a defender.

  • Loadsa people had them last year

  • Cool.

    I have ambitions of bringing a large tent, one we could stand in with no ground sheet (basically a gazebo) for extra shelter. If it had rained last year we'd have been shagged.

    @rob fancy making a Swedish log? Or should we dare mention the infamous Pizza oven that never was?


    Ailsa wouldn't let me take it :(

    however a local place does sell the Swedish torch things, so I was going to get some on the way up in the mobile wood shed Disco

  • @Rob & @Colm. Bad news, just off the blower with my brother. His company is after getting a couple of California's worth of a tax bill from Irish Revenue for having someone working for them who's domiciled in Ireland. Long story short, we need to hire a van. I'll handle all the logistics with respect to pick up and drop off etc., As well as booking. Looks like ~180 for a two berth from Friday to Monday. It doesn't cost much more for the bigger ones, but I'm not sure on license requirements for them.

  • Under 3200kg, so I'm licensed to drive it. I'll get excess cover which is 15 quid vs. their 100 quid excess reduction. It has a fixed bed at the back, so table will be accessible even if someone is sleeping.

  • Magnificent, less than 100 notes each

  • Camper sorted anyway. Pick up/drop off suits Ryanair flight times.

    This will be the accommodation for the weekend.
