Anyone else getting up at the crack of dawn for Showbus this year.....

At least it is not too far away only about 250 miles  Tongue

I'll be up early, but sadly I won't be at Showbus Sad
I'd rather kick myself in the bollocks than do a 500 mile round trip on a Sunday, but I'm sure it'll be a decent day for those who do head down there. Smile

Down south - Duxford i think? Don't go, don't pay attention to it so don't know much about it other than the fact it is a massive event.

To be fair there's no Go North East buses in amongst the usual 400ish that attend so that means nobody here has interest lol

I wouldn't say nobody is interested, if I could get there I would at least consider going to this but unfortunately it's not possible for me to travel down there. Some on here are mainly interested in GNE, nothing really wrong with that.

I heard that sort of thing loads before the 2014 MetroCentre Rally, they were all saying about nobody wanting to bring buses because of the amount GNE were bringing along.

I recall seeing that the 500 Group were putting a trip on to Showbus.

Some only go for preserved vehicles - their choice ain't it? Smile

Metrocentre Coach Park is massive, and there's more than enough room for everything.

Don't really follow anything bus related outside of NEB and Flickr so I often miss stuff like this. Really need to sort myself out.

Just looked on their Facebook and apparently they have four spaces left but I'm not sure if I would be totally up for it, especially as I'd be out for much of the day before at some gig/festival thing and I'd also have to find someone willing to drive me to Stockton for the 6am departure.

Just do what one of the Stockton residents does, and just spend a week camping out on the High Street...  Big Grin

Not ideal when I should be in Sunderland tomorrow night and Hartlepool on Saturday. I'm certainly very busy this week, I'm currently in Newcastle. Will try and get to Stockton tomorrow morning for the Stagecoach Connecting the Dots Launch.

I don't even have Facebook to contact them, so I'd have to sign up to that if I wanted to go.
