Fast and Furious

The Driving Experience run by Everyman on a disused airfield at Prestwold Hall near Loughborough was the location for my birthday treat. Not only did I get to drive the car of my boyhood dreams; the Porsche 911 (997 Carrera S), but I was also treated to several laps in the Lamborghini Gallardo.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Both cars were amazing and unlike any other driving experience. The sense of purpose that each machine has and the freedom of driving on a track translates into simple enjoyment. Fabulous.

Having watched the Olympic Games, Mark and I committed to giving it a go ourselves. Armed with cut-price ski clothing and a Groupon voucher we soon found ourselves at the top of a slippery slope inside a refrigerated warehouse at Tamworth. 3 hours later and utterly exhausted we were pleased with our progress. We now have to plan our return so we can complete the training and start on the half pipe. Gnarly, Dude!

International Table Top Day

Simon, Mark and I headed into Shadow Games, Rugby to join in the fun of International TableTop Day. We managed to squeeze in an abortive few games of Space Sheep, followed by Settlers of Catan, Munchkin and Carcassone: Hunters and Gatherers before dehydration our battery depletion took their toll.
