The Coach

The email lads are off to ATP 14-17 May this year. The festival is being curated by Pavement and should be a laugh riot.

The aim was to book a coach so that people wouldnt have to drive. I dont drive but i feel sorry for people who have to drive back from ATP on the Monday coz it reduces their ability to party on the sunday night. So I looked into it. I've got quotes coming out my butt but unfortunately we couldnt get people to commit. I went to book my coach first and got a 24 seat coach with driver there and back for 68 quid each. Way too much and i agree....did a bit of digging and spoke maghull coaches who would give a 24 seat coach for 57 quid...problem by this stage was that a few had dropped out/booked trains so we only really needed a 16 seater. Then travelforceuk came in with a mammoth offer of 50 quid each for 16 people with ipod dock and kareoke on the minibus! IMAGINE!

Unfortunately noone was into it! I am gutted...I emailed the guy from travel force to let him know the bad news:

no sorry its all over mate. Its all fallen through i'm gutted but the
mini bus thing just aint going to happen. Would have been boss as well
all pilin' in a minibus and gettin the tunes on.



So now...the coach is near...we've travelled each and every highway...I WISH! The coach isnt near and we wont be travelling anywhere on a coach.

So i'm at a loose end ...i might be getting a lift but i dont know, my friend rebecca has booked her train and i tried to book it but it was sold out...i might just book a train and go alone otherwise all the cheap tickets will go...is anyone who reads this blog (LOL) going to ATP?
