Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 4

I would say the blanket '2 minutes for changing' is a pretty poor approximation. It isn't too bad if you consider that it may average out over a challenge, but I think it becomes an issue at places like changing from Northern to H&C at Kings Cross; it takes a minute to do the change at speed and the...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2018/19: Round 1

Well, Simon & I were hoping for an improvement on last year's opening round, but alas we only managed a matching 10th place performance. We followed everyone Westbound from Cannon Street to Blackfriars , then returned, again with a lot of others, back to Cannon Street before hopping across to Bank, ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 5

A good day for Simon, Kat & I, teaming up with Hugo to give us our best finish of this season so far. We knew Mornington Crescent was a no brainer, and due to Kat's incapacitation and Saturday footfall, we knew that making the 30s connection at Camden Town was unlikely, so we waited on the platform ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 4

Not very much interesting to say for myself and my Dad's entry: We knew from pre-planning that if anything South of Ladbroke Grove came up like say, Hammersmith , we would cover those first. So down to Hammersmith we went, which given the 6 minute wait others complain of for a Northbound, seemed to ...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2017/18: Round 1

Well, it was a satisfactory day for me and my dad Simon. Not that we had time to mention it at the pub, but he's actually done most of the route planning for my FNC attempts, hence his interest in getting involved.
