It's ridiculous. I've just yesterday managed to book a cheap hotel in Manchester for £70 for this Saturday. There can't be THAT many people going to the BBQ.

It does seem to be a stupidly busy hotel, considering it's near, well, nothing.

That's what I was thinking. I mean the Bedford Blues are nearby but they don't have a huge nationwide following do they?

I saw them play their end of season game against the Cornish Pirates at Penzance the other Saturday.

Nope. You can go birdwatching nearby, I guess.

Or maybe the Toby Carvery is really popular.

Perhaps there's always a wedding on at the nearby church?

Ah - you can get the X5 to go to Bicester Village! Although, I'm not sure why you would when you can get the train straight from London and the east-west link is at least five years away.

There is another Travelodge in Bedford that's got rooms for that night. It's a couple of miles from Grim's so you'd be taxi-ing there and back but I can't imagine it would cost more than a few quid for a private hire.

Aye, although I've no idea where our tent is at the moment?

Our tent's a 6-man jobber and could feasibly fit more in it as it has a large "living space" too so others are welcome to crash in it if they have airbeds etc.

I'll run it past Sal but I'm suspecting the answer will be no :D

I hope I don't have to pay model fees.

You should come, TV.

So should everyone else.

But especially you.
