So I booked myself a little trip.
It's this year's Epic Journey With Little Purpose! Except, for the first time, there's actually a point to it. I'm going to have a week of bouncing round the Cumbrian Coast Line in mid-April, enabling me to wipe a swathe of otherwise difficult to collect stations off the map in one go. A week long orgy of Tarting. Hopefully there will be a bit of sun and not much flooding otherwise I'll be stuck in a Travelodge in Barrow-in-Furness staring out the window.
I know it's a few months off, but I'm already pretty excited by the prospect. I have routes to plan, timetables to consult, spreadsheets to fill in. And it'll make up for the general lack of activity round here.
