It's 2 and a half hours drive away from me, I wish it were in the south east of the UK.

Suck it up and drive you ponce (as well meaning as is possible ;-))! Is the South-East bubble such an impenetrable barrier to traveling to the rest of the UK? No empathy to be honest. The Americans ARE laughing at you.

Haha!

We're lucky to have one Amiga event a year in the US, and even that is 3,000 miles away. :(

Have you ever been to Leicester?

It's north of watford gap services, I'd have to go to the doctor to get inoculations, pick up a phrase book etc.
