My next Challenge attempt - 25th April

Post by perficad » 16 Apr 2014, 19:39

Well here goes - after a bit of an absence due to work and other commitments, my next challenge attempt will be 25th April. (last one was 14th December, and we had to stop after 160 stations because we could have never made it to T4 in time for last train)
Starting much earlier this time to at least get completion - even if fastest time fails; that will be my main aim :)
The lack of Olympia trains this year certainly makes it more tough, but its all part of the fun.
Done a few test runs of parts of the challenge based on my timetable for the day, and went smoothly

Thanks!

Sounds good.

Good luck and I hope you do well!

Do you have an estimated completion time if everything goes well?

Good luck!

Thanks!! Hopefully around 17 hours I would be happy with at least. Main aim is completion this time though. Slightly frustrating missed the Central Line Bond street closure by only 2 days

Well - we did it! my first completed challenge :)
Sadly nowhere near the record. Tracked a schedule of around 17.5 hours for most of the day, but unfortunately ended on 19hours, 15 mins due to missed connections on the Met line at the end of the day

We did however visit EVERY station, and all by the Guinness RULES :)
Was happy to make the 06:15am from Kenny Olympia

Congratulations! If you want to let me have your name (and ideally the time including seconds), I will add you to the list of top times.
