tube challenge book

Post by Golf » 18 Nov 2020, 18:57

I have in this time of illegal government lockdown started to write a tube challenge book to keep me sane and keep whatever remaining hair i have from being torn out :lol:. If anybody has some stories anecdotes that they wish to share please private message me and i will see if i can add into the book.

If you can wait until I do mine I'd be willing to tell my story of my FNC. Is it just going to be London or will you do others. It's a global sport after all!

Currently it's stick a pin in the calendar! I'm waiting for Covid to chuff off so I can travel down to London to do it. So sometime in 2021 either spring or autumn.

Including New York is a good call since I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion it's the most complicated FNC ever with it's large number of stations, having to visit every station on every line, maximising rush hour outside of Manhattan Island and visiting the two non 24 hour stations when they are open (You get the idea!)

Let me put 1 thing straight; lockdown 1 gave me plenty of time to look at potentail routes and let me say this:
Their are several alternate challenge record holders who: I AM COMING FOR YOU lol

Your waiting for all the stations back because of a desease that the world has overreacted to with illegal lockdownsi
London good luck best wait until battersea. New york is easier than you think even that cock boy whom holds it and doesnt recognise proper tube challengers will one day eat humble pie

The thing is with the tram is that due to the timetable change the standard route is impossible to beat the record unless u get a late running at sandilands so a new sneaky route method is needed ie a bus which still makes it pretty impossible and therefore the tram challenge record is hard to beat

I dont think that tram record is hard to beat yes you got to get lucky at sandilands but even several people i know have had a go at it and they aint great runners. i love a go at it probably its one of the only challenges you can do at moment.

its nice if u have a few hours spare however i prefer the dlr as a short challenge simply because the option of possible routes is greater

Very true most of the connections are the same its choosing the start and finish which changes that.
