Tube Relief



It is 2.40am and I have been awake for 30 minutes now. Less than two hours of sleep and a cold shower later I am feeling a little bit groggy about what is going to happen in the next 24 hours.

Yes it is Tube Relief 2005 day today.

In less than three hours time we will be meeting at Amersham tube station to begin our twenty hour journey around the underground in our grave attempt to visit every. single. tube. station.

Around 260 of them on a distance of 400 kilometres.

*Yawn* Shit. I am still so tired. I do not know how I am going to get through this, but getting through this I will.

We did not meet up at the pub at Amersham. Because of the rain Jenni had to nurse a cold due to her queuing outside the French Embassy during the downpour.

Annie Mole has pictures up from the pub meeting by the way.

If you see us today do give us a wave. We will be carrying ruck sacks so if you spot two orientals carrying these:



...do not be afraid. :)

As you can see, we will be mostly carrying snacks, drinks, maps and pieces of papers. London's pick-pocketers should be warned that there is nothing of value to be found in the bags. At all.

LitUK, I did!

Kyels, Tube Relief is based on Tube Challenge where every challenger attempts to visit all 274 London Underground stations in one day - but in the name of charity for the London bombing victims.
