Not bad for a "75 day jolly up", eh Andi?

it's still a jolly up or did Geoff pay for it himself? nevertheless the filming and the fact u can say visited them all is an achievement. I bet they didn't visit st Andrews house the oldest though.

Personally I don't think it should count, because they haven't uploaded a continuous video of them since they left Penzance ...

I was in Inverness and heard about the fact they were finishing in Wick the next day, while I was still there. Couldn't join them though!

I drove them (by train) from Taunton to Exeter the day before they did Okehampton. Complete coincidence.
Did you know in advance, or retrospectively?

The clue is in my use of the word "coincidence".

I hadn't read it that way, I thought it meant it wasn't planned so it was like that, not that you didn't know. Makes more sense now!

Nope - no planning. I just drove into the station, and there they were waiting on the platform.

it was indeed an amusing moment when Neil's 43 rolled into Taunton. "Maybe Neil will be driving it?" i joked to Vicki as the train approached. Then i spotted Neil's beard .. "IT BLOODY IS!" i yelled. and on we hopped... into the wrong carriage, out again, and into the right carriage.

and then we went and did all of the rest of the stations too. huge appreciation to anyone here who Kickstarted/supported/watched us or even left a nice comment - thank you.

definitely not a jolly. and definitely put some of my own money into making it happen.

also, well done to the @allthebuses team too. 'All The..' is the new transport phrase for 2017, clearly.
