Mouse- I'm valid through to the end of the month so no worries on that score. If I renew before I go I'll get put into a draw for some Garmin shiny things. Gingers crossed for you HC and a speedy recovery to ByF.
First and second items on the forgotten list - piratey prezzy and foreign currency.
I don't think I've been this disorganised in a long time. However passport has been located and travel arrangements made. I'll be arriving on the (train of doom - 1), so a little in advance of the cool kids. Now just have to arrange travel insurance, renew BTA membership, sling some stuff into a bag and then start on the 'what have I forgotten' list.
