Hi From The Uk

Saturday, travel by train, train, ferry, bus, bus, short walk, arrive on site and set up.

 

No way on God's green earth will one see a US troop travelling like this.  :)  Love it!

We're heading to summer camp by train as well next week, it's quite a common site to see this side of the pond. It's quite a fund way of showing the kids off to the great British public!

 

I guess our population density and consequent extensive rail network compared to you chaps does help.

 

We love to moan about our rail system and it's true that it is not up to the extraorindary standards that you see in mainland Europe, particularly Germany, but actually it's pretty good and there are not many places that you can't get either directly too or at least within easy distance of by train.

You should see people's faces when the bus pulls up and there's 36 kids/leaders queued up to get on. Only had one grumpy sourpuss (that I noticed) that moved rather than listen to any more of my explorers endless inane chatter, and it wasn't me. Being in our scarves seemed to be a conversation starter if anything. Met some nice people.

 

It's not something we've done before, but it's certainly something to consider for the future.
