Quick drink or 3 course meal
Digger if you don't mind camping I'd go for that option. It's right next to the watersports centre and other than a few sounds coming across the river very quite. Your going to have to get up at about 4.30 to 5am anyway so a hotel might be a bit of a waste of money as your going to be flapping the night before.
You could even borrow a caravan off dave if you wanted?
Cake, have toyed with camping as other threads say the closeness to the start makes life so easy.
However, as i have never really camped, and dont have a tent not sure about it. Have looked at tents though and seems one can be bought for £25/£30 so cost won't be much different
This from a man whose never really ironmaned before!!!!
ps who is Dave
I can lent you a tent if you want and sure others can to?
One of the pirates used to have a caravan and is called dave it's become a bit of a pirate in joke after he lost it in his devorce. Very nice man and you will probably meet him at some point. Just don't tell him I said that.
Cake, that is a very kind offer thank you.
Are you doing outlaw( I think you are in a relay team), I cannot remember and are you camping as well.
Doing the relay and will be down all day because of friends doing stuff to, If feasible I might put my name down on the feed staion but not sort thats a good idea at the moent and don't want to let folks down. Got a small tent I can lend you and will be bring a massive tent your welcome to put your stuff in. I'm asuming it will be full of folks or your welcome to sleep in that if you can put up with me talking and my sleep and snoreing.
I will be surplised if there arn't a few camping the night before and stuff.
That actually sounds fabulous. I can then meet some of the peeps on here who are being so so helpful.
Mind you I haven't actually entered yet. Probably do that end Feb when I get paid again and I know a little more about how my training is going, if I can get rid of my bloody cold!!!
I really throught it was you and then realised you where awake and moving about. I think that boy was swollowing his pillow.
Digger If you can meet some of the southern lot before outlaw and get them to help you out with some training rides and stuff sure there will be stuff going on somewhere.
M.eldy, Live about 1mile from RBM. Have been on a couple of rides with him. Haven't managed to keep up yet though, and I don't think he was really trying.
CD lives just round the corner (ish) we have quite a big ironman training group here and a very active running club, we have managed to get in a few rides together ,but I is a bit injured at the mo so just doing my own thing and CD IS long running on sundays for VLM. we aint no southerners down ere we are westoes

Bliddy inbreds CD you will just have to settle for meeting most of us in a pub after VLM instead then !
I must admit I am not actually Cornish. I have only been here 25 years so I am only halfway to giving myself the luxury of 'legally' calling myself so!
Took a bit of a liberty with my name hoping nobody down here would find out.
CD nor am I only been down here since 1976 oim a larndaner keep it under your hat or the Kernow b@stards will be round with the pitchforks and flaming torches
Love it down here mind and would never go back to London
