    OPACY is a beautiful facility. If we had a decent owner it would be packed continually, not just when the Saux and Yanks come to town.

    Yes, I'll be over to meet you at your hotel. I guess you'll be at the hotel around 7.45 - you have my cell number so if you give me a call when you arrive, that would be good.

    You'll love that ride in on the light rail. When I first moved here, and before I even appreciated what it was all about, I was awe struck by the sight.

    Goodluck stockers,Dave & I don't mind carrying you on our shoulders.
    At least you will be able to get off to sleep.I maybe staring at the ceiling for an hour or two before I get off,then before you know it the alarm will be going off at 5.45am.

    I think I will give Heathrow a taste of Baltimore tshirt and cap tomorrow.
    Hopefully that should slide us through security without them doing a body cavity search.

    Yep got your number Fells.Lets get this party started.

    The stadiums will be on your left. There is a stop at M&T Bank but it is only used for football game days. The stop at OPACY is always in use. Ben, will they go another stop or two for their hotel?

    By the way, the parts of South Baltimore you come through aren't the most attractive places around, forgive the mess.

    Here's a link to the light rail map: http://www.mtamaryland.com/services/...6LightRail.pdf

    Your best bet is to get off at the stop after Camden Yards, which is the Convention Center. You'll find yourselves on Pratt Street. Walk one block north to Lombard Street and your hotel should be to your right, I think about a block down (less than 5 mins walk from Light Rail stop).

    I have a map of the City centre - with the hotel marked. I am pretty sure that Fell's is only meeting up to get his hand on the pork scratchings I'm bringing.
    What should we do with the mountain of bisto gravy we have?
    Chips 'n' Gravy at the tailgate!!! (That's french fries with gravy to you non-Brits)

    Actually having chips with gravy (boiling water > gravy powder > simmer) is known in the South of England as 'going Northern' .
    Where as we Northerners are more often seen with chips and curry sauce or a Kebab!

    Would you like us to bring a put with and water? We have a couple of small one we use to bring soup in for the cold weather games but we can bring them with water if you like.

    No thanks - Greg.
    I would have to start talking in a Northern accent - then you would have no chance of understanding me.
    Just had a quick chat to Fell's - all okay
    Off to bed now, 6 hours until I start my journey!!!!!
    See you soon!
