Farthest From XVI - 9th and 10th December 2017

Postby SAVORY100 » Thu Sep 14, 2017 9:34 am

This will be upon us before we know it... lets get a roll call going and start sharing where everyone is staying on Saturday Night. I see that Mon Cal Con is back on the night of the 9th, so I expect a lot of folk will be staying over.

This time I would like to join the community. As I'm located in Germany, I don't really know how to get from Heathrow to Fordingbridge. What would you guys recommend - by bus or by train? Also any recommendation for a room there? Any help or advices would be appreciated.

Where abouts in Deutschland are you? Can you get to Gatwick?

I live in a small village between Cologne and Düsseldorf - so I have two airports to fly from. But I think, flights to Gatewick might be more expensive, but I have to check it out. You think it might be easier from there to get to Fordingbridge?

Depends on what days you fly in on. I could possibly offer you a lift.

What a great offer, but I did not want to make any efforts on somebody else. It would be unpleasant fo me if anybody has to plan his time on my schedule. Whe did you plan to drive to Fordingbridge?
I will try to arrive on Saturday morning (to join the community on saturday night for a couple of beers) and leave on sunday in the evening at the airport.

Defiantly going and need a place to stay as well.

Don't worry- the last FF I was the first to bed and at Echo Base I was the one stopping the fights. Can be good boy.

Fordingbridge is a tiny village in the middle of no where, except David Tree's shop. :lol: Getting there with public transport is tricky, check with Jason Smith as he often takes public transport from London. If you can get a lift that would make your life easier. Good luck!

I think I may be getting a lift there this time. If not the route I take is:-

London Waterloo train to Salisbury takes about 90 mins
Then a 15 min walk through Salisbury shopping centre to Blue Boar Row M bus stop
X3 bus to Fordingbridge post office stop takes about 20 mins

https://assets.goaheadbus.com/media/tim ... T_2017.pdf

Normally takes me about 3 hours door to door factoring in just missing trains and/or buses and waiting for the next one.
