    I am planning on going to London a day or so early, but am thinking about going to Crystal Palace to go to the maze, and also just to see where it all started, on the Friday before heading up to teh campsite.

    Would anyone be interested in coming with me on this one?

    Depends on what I'm doing work-wise and what time I need to get to the site! But I would love to see the maze :)

    Scotchmi5t and I are arriving at silly-o'clock on the Friday morning so think we could be up for that.

    Having our own mini-pilgrimage to the Guide Shop too, seeing we're from the wilds of Scotland and all that! ;)

    Can you make room for a Londoner that might be able to get time off work even if she's not going camping?

    Sounds good, I'm up for it as we will have plenty time since we'll be arriving very very early!

    I need to check if I have the Thursday off (is that the day we're talking about?) but if so then I would definitely be interested.

    And the lounge downstairs at CHQ is lovely, a real lifesaver where tea is concerned!

    I think they're talking about going on the Friday Penny, before heading over to the G2G4 site, from what Jenn said in her original post, but I could be wrong!

    I blame my painkillers. I am so not the brightest bunny today. I probably won't on Friday as it'll be a bit much for me to do in a day. But I'm going to try and take the girls at some point this year I think. Take pictures though!

    Yeah, I was thinking Friday. I am maybe going to go to London on Thursday, as there's several other things I want to do as well (either that, or I get a very early train), but was going to go on Friday so that I don't have to buy a 2 zone ticket one day and 4 zone the day after. Pus I'm guessing there'll be more of us in London on Friday!

    What time we arriving Scotchmi5t? Some un-holy hour like 6.15 am!! hehe!

    I've got one of them Oyster cards, need to top it up when I get there but they are brill!! not srue what the deal is with them but I think it caps your travel costs at something lower than an all zone day ticket.

    We only spent about £10 between us last weekend we were in London. (either that or the machine was busted!)

    Can it not be this weekend? ! All excited already!
