    Someone yesterday jokingly said "we should start a thread to add up total distances travelled by UKAPS members to get to TGM". So here it is :p

    I travelled about 105 miles, including catching a train at 7.30am to Birmingham New Street (about 20 miles) and then being picked up by Ulster and driving the rest of the way (about 85)

    So, running total so far - 105 miles for me :)

    Obviously, double that up if you want to count return journeys ;)

    Me and Dan did about 40 each way, maybe? Me a little more because I'd travelled to Stoke from home.

    Yes I can't wait to get home!

    I thought it was really good compared to the blue reef aquarium, but Sam had already been and John had seen better in Boston. Definately worth the visit! I can't wait to take my fella.

    Well, the running total for distance travelled one-way, ie just to get to TGM is:

    953 miles

    Nearly at the 1000 mile mark and theres still more people not posted (I've only counted individuals who have posted, not other travelling partners).

    Google reckons it's 76.5 miles from my house, so add in a 5 mile-ish detour to pick up DevUK, I'm talking 158 miles altogether.
