I'll be bringing my HTPC along, so we'll have a PC upon which the WWE Network can be viewed. The only real question is Internet connection quality.

and then I remember you haven't been to one of these before. I wouldn't hold your breath on the WiFi being stable or fast enough for supporting a house full of anime fans and their multitude of devices and then streaming HD video on top.

We are, but I'm willing to soak up the cost of that place if no latecomers crop up to fill that slot.

Depending on the layout, we may be able to negate WiFi and go wired (I'll bring my longest Ethernet cable just in case!) - but yeah, we'll just have to see how it looks when we get there.

You can almost see the tears of disappointment in his eyes.

So on the Saturday I'll need to go for a 22-25km run (Marathon Training) - anyone got any suggestions of routes/paths in the local area?

Matlock Bath's in a valley, which you have to get out of to cover that kind of distance without looping a lot. Only problem is it's hilly as **** in every direction, you really do need to be crazy to run around there... but you are so... Pick a direction and go there's pleasant green stuff every which way, just avoid the A6 as much as possible it's a dangerous road. If you head to Cromford Canal you'll get some flat in your run, but a lot of the roads around there don't have footpaths and are national speed limit. Also around there Lea's quite pleasant, again hilly and no paths. You could head past some old UKAStock haunts at Riber and Holloway, but the trek up the hill to Riber very nearly killed Rob and the trek up the hill to Holloway nearly killed Carl several times.

If you're not feeling crazy a quick (<20mins) drive out to Carsington Reservoir will give you 8miles ish on one loop around it. It's pretty flat with lots of facilities and safe clear paths.

3 weeks~

I'll mention again, I can give anyone from around Manchester (or close enough) or between there and Matlock a lift if you need or don't want to take a bus/train.
