I'm scared to death of flying Rob, but I'm close enough to Manchester/East Midlands/Liverpool or Birmingham Airport.

I did a bit of homework and basically you are supposed to be able to walk (10mins) from Edinburgh Airport to Showground?

I think Easyjet go from Liverpool so may look into that?

I did think of the train but it looks a bit of hassle and I think the tramway from the airport to town got ditched?

John Craig has asked me several times if I'm coming up as he's got a few things I might want to see? He'll tell me no more, so if I can sort it I'll go and have a look?

Hillhead is coming up and obviously on my doorstep so I'll have a trip up there.

Eddie.

I have no excuse really as only 10mins from Gatwick and about same from Luton while at work. I shall make some enquiries. Cant say I fancy a 10min walk, dont they have taxi's in that part of the world

Rob, I'm not saying I'm a bad flyer but I know why the Pope used to get off and kiss the ground!

After 40 minutes or so going up there in the 'brace' position I'll be glad of a 10 minute walk!

The alternative is about 5 hours in the Defender as the missus won't lend me her car!

Eddie.
