lads,
I don't even know what side of the road they drive on, and we hired a car for the trip, I'd better look it up.


:shock:

Uhh,
Dave.
Did I mention I'm probably gonna be staying on the roof of the hotel
like Anto?

:D

Uhh,
do you not remember me asking if I should hire a car and the 2 of you agreeing?? I don't know if Hertz will allow me to cancel it now...
How do you expect to get between the hotel and airport and what if its cloudy in the area.?

2 EURO!
Thats a rob.
I was thinking of walking anyway.
It's forecast to be a nice sunny day after all!


:lol:
Dave,
I was only joking.
(e.g because you said you dont know which side of the road to drive on)

As for the Tom Tom Maps.
Do they have a support email
or a customer service number so you can ask?

The roof translates to electrical power (for laptops), tables, chairs, clear and unobstructed views, no visitors ("can I take a peek?") etc etc ....


I think the astrophotographers sometimes get a bit of a raw deal,
just coz you dont want people pawing at your gear and distracting you
(you take off into the distance - God I know that feeling!)
doesn't mean your all like this...

Just stay away from me until I get my shot,
then I'll be all like this:

ahh Fat Mike,
you just gotta love this guy!

So,
to reiterate,
come near me when I have a look of concentration on my face
near during or shortly after totality...
you may suffer.

I'm not really sure if modern medicine is yet able to fully treat this injury:

Frank you don't think really that we've paid 1800euro
to come near you "near, during or shortly after totality"? :lol: :lol: :lol:
