I have spoken to camspite and

- sheets etc will be provided for "bunkhousers"
- microwave will hopefully be added to cooking facilities

You may also want to take

- cossies/goggles for swimming( really nice sports centre)
- strong shoes for walking( cracking coastal wlk from "the Sound") see below




I am also taking
- 1:25,000 OS sheets ( N and S) I am a map nut and these are good for walking/detail stuff
- 1:50,000 OS sheet great for checking the yellow (and white) roads
- netbook (so I can attempt to get on carpe site - although I had no success at TT)
- mini folding seat (handy for loads of things inc watching southern 100 races)
- various little guidebooks
- Isle of Man Pub and Brewery Guide ( written in 1995 but still worth a look)
- brollie

It all fits in me soft luggage:


Not taking guitar as I was heartbroken at the abuse my poor little "Tesco" traveller got at bellingham - you bitches (haha). Although we may have a singalong session in the Crosby Hotel on Monday night. The hawthorn is the closest pub and although a bit pricey, the food apparnetly if absolutely first class - maybe worth it for one evening. This is their website http://www.thehawthorn.co.uk/

hope this is useful

I am getting new C and S fitted this saturday and will ditch the engine guards, so P7 KCU will be ready for its lttle excursion.

Roll on!

Ya can Feck off,
I dont want to wake up in the morning and see you standing over me, with a razor in your hand. Again. blink.gif

The whole idea is that I have me own space and can snore my head off, with out upsetting anyone.

I'll find a quiet place away from everyone at the campsite.

Set up my Huge tent, with carpets coffee tables and lounge bed and relax.

Like a Bedowin oasis of calm. rotflmmfao.gif

Might even get some, Wind Chimes on the veranda, do a spot of yoga.

Thanks for the offer mate but I'm in the bunkhouse rather than camping so shouldn't need side panniers, in which case I'll probably leave the MTC on and not bother fidding with the pipes until I get back.
