    2022 Headliners

    Oh good 2 hours of him falling asleep on his organ with the volume at 11. He has done some great sTuff over the years, interstellar is terrible.
  3. Bingeing on House at the moment, terrible show but Hugh Laurie is so watchable as House. every episode is exactly the same, 4 doctors spend all their time trying to diagnose 1 patient by throwing every drug known to man at them until after nearly killing said patient one drug finally works. No wonder healthcare is so expensive in the States🙄🙄🙄 house is a brilliantly written character played by a fantastic actor at the top of his game, but like I say terrible show.
  4. Makes a lot of sense having a covid pass, living in the EU we have been travelling around using the EU one, went to Italy for 2 weeks in September and you had to show it to get in everywhere, worked well, you also had to show ID to show the pass belonged to you. You still need to show it to get in restaurants here in Luxembourg and to get in to the Xmas markets.
  5. Fussed over whether to get the tickets delivered to us here in Luxembourg or sent to my parents in the UK.
  6. Aigle makes the best wellies. They are like slippers to wear, so so comfortable, very supportive with fantastic customer service. They are a case of you get what you pay for, they are very expensive but worth every penny. My wife had the same pair for the whole time we had our Labrador, she wore them pretty much every day walking him and also wore them at Glastonbury in 2016. She gets terrible blisters with almost everything she wears, but not those boots, still has them now 13 years after she bought them.
  7. I wonder if they will announce entry restrictions, ie you have to be vaccinated. It makes sense for that to be a requirement but you need to give people notice, especially if you are going to put a time limit on people’s last jab. as a side note I wonder if people will have to provide a negative test and if so how they will work that for the campervan fields bearing in mind they are outside the fence, don’t fancy having to queue for a test every day.

    How do you feel?

    Shit is how I feel. Just made the decision to not travel back to the UK for the second Christmas in a row, covid is pissing me off, there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight and I fear we will have bad news about Glastonbury by the end of January.
  9. I fear the next announcement will be about the festival itself.
  10. 50/50 probably will know for sure by the end of Jan.
  11. No idea if this is controversial or not but Weird al yankovic is nowhere near as funny as he thinks he is.
  12. Not doing this specifically for G but I’m using it as an initial target, I’m seeing a personal trainer 3 times a week and cycling 2 times a week. I’m approaching the heart attack years( late 40s, early 50s) and I’ve spent the last 25 years overweight to varying degrees so figure it’s now or never. Ultimate target is to be a racing snake in 4 years when we are selling up and going travelling. I’m healthy now, I don’t do sick, but the weight and lifestyle will eventually catch up with me if I don’t get rid of it now.
  13. Just finished Downton Abbey, yes I know, very late to the party. also watching The Americans and How I met your mother.
  14. Nope. Not a chance I’ll be there. Not my thing at all.
  15. I got an email today confirming the campervan ticket I bought 2 years ago
  16. Next year will be our 4th, keeping things fresh is my way of coming to terms with failing on T day more often than succeeding.
  17. Saw Billy Idol there in 2015, fantastic.

    ABBA

    Whilst I welcome new music I really don’t get the ABBA’tars thing, I’m old school I like my live music to be live. At least when Britney, Madonna or Beyoncé mime, they are doing it in front of you. it just screams cash grab.
  19. We have a budget in mind, but we are only at the very start of figuring out what vehicle we want. I’d rather spend more before we go and have a tip top vehicle than keep costs low but have issues on route. I’m thinking 110 Land Rover with the 300tdi as its the least complicated and actually considered pretty reliable, by LR standards anyway. we are visiting a builder hopefully this weekend to have a chat and we are also going to an off road camper show in Germany in October. we think 2 years is a reasonable length of time to allow for the trip. We know how long the group overland companies take and the pace they travel at so have basically doubled the length to allow us to do as we want and to allow a break halfway through.
  20. That sounds like a lot of hard work, they are braver than me. our trip is something we have wanted to do for a long time but are just getting to the point where we can do it. We are probably not going for a few years yet, got a vehicle to build, money to save and we will wait until a certain you know what has buggered off for good.
  21. 50/50 really could go either way, if it does go ahead it’s going to be majorly UK artist heavy.
  22. Just starting the planning for a van build to travel in Africa for a couple of years. At the moment we are thinking 110 Land Rover with a pop top and basic sink and hob plus storage inside, although roof tent and drawer storage in the back is another option. It’s something my wife and I have wanted to do for a good few years now. We have done group overland trips in Africa, and elsewhere, but want the freedom that comes with doing it yourselves. essentially the trip will be in 2 parts, Europe to Cape Town down the west coast and then Cape Town to Alexandria up the east coast (ish). The only issue with finishing in Alexandria is issues with getting the vehicle home, you are surrounded by Libya on one side and then the Middle East on the other, there are ferry’s to Turkey but they are cargo only so we would have to put the vehicle on one of these and then fly to meet it in turkey.
  23. I think with a bit of belief he would have won, but at least he has the team gold.
