    aye, true that, but still i'd be happy if someone with a half decent camcorder brought it along and recorded some of the journey. I'd totally rat my car for it though

    only thing with that is usually an entrance fee etc etc, and expect everyone to be super nice, where as if it was done privatlly among civiclifers it could get funny and lots of antics
