Hey, those who are flying from Glasgow, you wanna meet somewhere??? I'll have my blue tshirt on anyway!
We should be booked in all the way thru from glasgow as its all UA flights even tho it will be a British Midlands flight down to london. Dont take me on it but thats how it should be.

I am semi jealous of this big UK meet up. The only kiwi I know of leaving on the same day as me is big Ed. The creator/godfather of this little forum topic. I'll see you on the plane Ed.

Adam's idea of a big meet up before checking in at Heathrow sounds like a brilliant idea! i still haven't booked my return flight yet and was wondering what other people were thinking of doing post-camp? i know what date i've gotta come home and it means i'm probs guna have about 10 days travelling but don't know whether to get a DIY return flight or get my free one from New York. The problem is that internal flights from say california to new york are really not cheap so might work out more expensive than just getting a DIY flight. anyone got any ideas?! sorry for the essay!

Not many of you seem to be planning big holidays in the US after camp. I'm mucking around in the states for around 2 and a half months after stewie. Is anyone else doing the same?

Welcome Harry! Isn't it strange how we have had 17 pages and around 4 months of quality, good natured, friendly and informative forum usage then the first post by an aussie bloke lays down some banter. Haha, I wouldn't expect any less from my convict derived tasman neighbour.

alright peep

probably my last post.

I am flying out tomorrow!! 6am! Gonna get there and get everything set up for you guys arriving.

whatever your planning to pack, half it, you wont need it.
whatever money your bringing, double it
say good bye to chronic internet usage for 3 months and get ready for slow dial-up once a week.
bring teabags if you like tea
and believe it or not dont forget a light rain jacket
say goodbye to your independance and hello to communal living
make friends with the bugs and insects on your arrival, dont wait for them to greet you first
exercise your vocal chords and get ready for a brainwash of camp songs
leave any foul language at the front door and get ready to pick up alternatives - 'fish', 'shuckydurn'...
get ready for your live to be changed, your eyes to be opened and the passion of camp life to grab you, this is going to be an amazing summer. be open, be enthusiastic, be prepared and just be yourself.

See you soon

7th Summer returner- maybe
Camp Director
CA Interviewer
Camp recruiter
