Here we go again! 09/05/2014

Post by Urzzz1871 » 08 May 2014, 13:47

Our attempt #2 at the full network is tomorrow. Unfortunately, our team of 3 has been reduced to 2, as one decided he never wanted to see a tube again! :roll:

After having minimal support last time, we have decided to go it alone this time, with just a lift to our start point and then home again.

As before, we are certainly not going to be challenging for any records, but just want to get a bit higher up the table than 3rd from bottom. :oops: We have tweaked our route, avoiding our most obvious mistakes from last time, so hopefully it will at least get us something respectable on the board (under 18hrs would be nice), though we know we'll just find some new mistakes to hate even more.

Fingers crossed for a "good service".

I think Sam speaks for everyone here. Good luck. Don't get too disheartened if you don't complete, it's happened to (nearly) all of us!

Delays on the Piccadilly, hopefully you are avoiding that, keep going with the updates.

Well, we finished and knocked 44 minutes off our PB ending up at 18:45:45.

Everything went completely to plan including a High Barnet to Cockfosters connection in a rather nice 22 mins. That it where it all began to unwind thanks to the signalling issues. I'll do a fuller report tomorrow, but am shattered today after a trip back to London for the FA Vase final at Wembley.

Well done! If you let me know which of the two Jamies from last time was with you on this attempt, I'll update the top times table.
