Got that beat.... 760 mile round trip..markopoloman wrote: Absolutely knackered worked out as a 700 mile round trip!! - so will do a proper post tomorrow.....
I was only able to make Sunday but haven't missed a big one and wasn't this time.
However because of the lack of sleep and distance and 5 pints i was totally exhausted and went up to the hotel room at 5pm to collapse. Didn't wake up again until 11pm.
That brings me onto the bad point...
Ayone thinking about ever staying at the Norbreck Hotel... Just don't.!
The rooms are a sh1thole. The whole place smells funny and the walls and floors between rooms are paper thin and might as well not be there. I was kept up half the night by the person next door flushing their noisey toilet which must have been about 3 feet from where i was sleeping.
Also the whole floor was full of extremely noisey argueing and door slamming unhappy housewives from Durham.
None could ever get their door keys to work even at 2am.
Do all Durham women sound like they are shouting when they talk.?
Back to the Premier Inn next year..
But the event i managed to stay awake for was good.
