got there at 10am Friday morning ,saw couple of flags in the caravan area, no tents at all. aside from the general public in very small numbers. Had the whole area to choose from and since I was not a pirate at the time and tend to like it quiet set up in the middle of knowwhere. By Friday tea time had met several pirates who set up in nearby and by Sat lunch it looked like a festival ..come early ...it's fun pre race . post race I was crippled nauseous etc , which made me less good company!

Just follow the train of kebab wrappers and empty beer bottles...

Sorry.... I'll be more careful with my rubbish this year!!

I'm guessing it will be much like last year - one of us, possibly me, will arrive Friday, grab a spot (same spot as last year??) fly the Pirate flag and head off to the pub after laying claim to half the camp site. Simples!

The camp site was turn up and pay on the day.

I got down there at half six Fri night, still loads of room, just had time to pitch tent and set stuff out before heading to the pub for a quick half

No need to book, just turn up and pay on the day and find the pirate area.  Loads of space.

EP - you need to bring dollar bills for the strippers!

In T1 they have people to strip the wetsuit from you at Outlaw. Though they ended up dragging me along the ground for a while. In T2 you hand your bike to someone who then racks it for you, saving you time.

I trimmed about 2" off the legs after Outlaw. It was much easier the next time I used it.

I don't know why, but this really made me giggle - I've never been stripped before ... quite looking forward to it now

My sister was a stripper at Outlaw last year, she was shouting at people, "Sit down and I'll pull you off!".

Pass on my thanks. It took 2 people to tug mine!

I thought T1 times were a little on the long side.

If that's what happens in T1, think of the Happy Finish..

why d'ya have to go and say that - i got my plan pinned up above the PC and havent even thought about how many weeks there is left - but i just checked, why you on week 12, for one second i thought there was only 18 weeks until the outlaw which would also mean that i only had 13 weeks until the double, which scared the shit out of me. a quick count says 23 weeks till outlaw. phew.

made the mistake of telling the better half about wet suit strippers, she wanted to know where she signs up, all too bloody quickly for my liking .
