Drop into our wonderful birthing unit on the way in to your cultural tour of 'Ull Skippy, it'll get everyone in the mood for the scenic delights 'Ull has to offer.
(Got some good pubs though folks)

No way, Andy! You're tall enough as it is! (Well, you might be able to serve as our crow's nest ...)
Anyway, doing the cultural tour by bike seems a great idea (said she, never having biked in 'Ull before). And it doesn't really seem worthwhile to find a bus for a fifteen-minute tour, does it?

Now, if I'm still allowed to come along after this nasty aside:
Dave Bryant - yes, I'd like to borrow one half of your spare tent (actually, both halves might be called for ...). So, thanks for the offer. Does it come with transport to and from the campsite? And, as I said earlier, I'll bring my own sleeping bag.

Susanne - if you borrow the tent, it's up to you who you share it with ! - it's only a small (igloo style) eurohike. They'll probably be an airbed to go with it if you want. We'll have spare seats available in the car if you wish to travel at the same time as us.
We might also be able to dispense the odd cuppa etc.

Is this biking thing serious ? - we could bring a couple of folding bikes with us if so.

Cycling doesn't seem like a bad idea at all. I've just purchased a second-hand bike here for 25 euro (plus 12,50 repairs), and I'm gradually learning (by trial and error) how to use the gears. Would you believe I've never had a bike with gears before? They're redundant in the Netherlands. Oh MudGuard, I'll do a German song for you instead. Or a Dutch one. Or maybe both.
OK, on topic: I'm too lazy to PM you, Skip, but I'd like to come on the tour.

A bike would be one way to do a tour de Hull as long as the vapours from jOhn9's curries aren't likely to seriously corrode essential parts. Perhaps Oakley could design some whelk-powered propulsion units. Noreen - I'll offer you a lift on the handlebars - it would make it quite fun trying to get to the bell !

Seriously, I think we quite likely will bring bikes with us - they can go in the caravan for the trip up.

The single at the B&B over the road can be fixed for me from Friday to Sunday.

Oh no, no, no, no, no! Don't start the the stuff about the 'Helmets again; it near got Oakers and meself permanently removed from these parts.

Whilst bicyles are a splendid transport solution for the sessions, I fear the 26 mile round trip might affect some sore arses, and the two point seven deaths that statistics can prove we should expect might dampen enthusiasm for the ride home. Seriously, I was T-boned out of the cycle lane in the middle of Hull9 last summer by some twat of a driver who 'didn't see' me, despite the dayglo lycra, and I durn't fancy having Mudblood on my hands.

I'm still not sure if I'll be available for the cultural tour of Hull or not. Maggie and I discussed it and we said that we might give Moor and Coast a miss for one year. If I'm in Hull I'll be delighted to give you all the runaround (and I can cetainly use a few £57s).

I'm imagining a walking tour of the Old Town following the route of the Fish Pavement. If I'm not available there should be a leaflet available from the Tourism Office (under the City Hall) that will give details of the buildings on the route (I was involved in helping produce this leaflet when I 'worked' for the Council).

The route passes (through?) at least three of our significant pubs, Minerva, Black Boy and Olde White Harte. Anyone who favours museums over pubs (anyone?) can visit them (they're free!) while the others wait in congenial settings for the others to catch up.

Fighting for Beginners is one of a series of workshops offered by Skip during the weekend. It covers fighting etiquette, techniques and tips to make you a more confident brawler. Some find the sudden eruption of senseless violence a bit exclusive and cliquey and the course is designed to provide a way into this charming and rewarding pastime. I have no idea how much he'll charge but I suspect it will be in the region of £57 not including accommodation. Just bring a pool cue stand and a long piece of wood with a big nail sticking out.

Linda and I are arranging to pick up Susanne and Wolfgang from Stansted on Friday morning and bring them up with us.

We'll still want to put our caravan on the site suggested by Doug.
I assume that Susanne will probably wish to put the tent thay we're lending her there as well.

Is Bron bringing her camper ? - what other campers are there likely to be ?

If there are enough people on site to warrant it, Linda & I could always bring one of our herd of gazebos.

We might be able to manage if we use my car rather than Linda's - five of us plus a caravan is rather a load for a Vauxhall Astra 1.7 diesel and my Peugeot 405 1.9 diesel isn't that much bigger. How much do you all weigh - I don't think we'd have room if you're all as big as Andreas ? Thank god the run through Linconshire is very flat - we'd never make it up the hills to somewhere like Whitby !
