Wow !
Just make sure you have Nothing in your hand luggage or pockets that could possibly be construed as a weapon.
Bear in mind you guys will go through security at every airport.

No matter what you've read, there is NO acceptable size knife you can take onboard an international flight.

My top flight tip.
Take an empty water bottle in your hand luggage and fill it from a water fountain or Tap after you've gone through security.
It'll save you an absolute fortune in buying water.

Personally I wouldn't take a sling through either, I know a lot of the guys do.
And I've had them in my hand luggage in the past.

But you guys are going through a bunch of different security points and it only takes one arsehole with a hangover to remove it/them from your bag.
You have no rights, they can and will take anything they deem a 'threat'.

If you just assume all airport security personnel are complete arseholes, you weren't go far wrong Smiley

Well, there's no way I can make it.
My mum's actual operation went well, but there was an accident - as the surgeon put it - and she now no longer has a spleen.
.so the whole recovery process will be longer than we expected.

Just no way I can go anywhere any time soon.

I did have a thought about the meeting on the Saturday.
If someone could arrange a zoom call, then some of the rest of us could get involved in the conversation

Christian should be able to arrange things.

But, yeah, poopy happens.

I did think there was an outside chance I might be able to do Friday to Monday.
But while my mum is recovering remarkably well for someone in their 80s recuperating from - essentially - 2 major surgeries.
No way I can risk it.
Had it been in 2 weeks I'd have made it.
Ah well, such is life.

Some of you should be there by now.
Come on guys, we need pictures !

There is not much time to spend thinking what to film we are next to the beach and I haven't been in the water yet There were long discussions that would make  great podcasts.
Check out David's Facebook.
