Speaking heart to heart, TT - isn't it simply a matter of going down to Constitution Dock, and turning north (and allowing a bit of time for the swim)?

Well Truscott, you'd better get started then! ;^D

Google maps just gives up on directions, but with a direct line distance of just under 11,000 miles, assuming an average paddling speed of about 2.5mph and assuming you average the same portaging over land, that's about 4400 hours or about 175 days. Allowing you some time to sleep and eat, that would mean you are looking at next year if you start soon.

Of course, you may want to take the scenic route, since the direct route does go through some hostile territory, in more ways than one! ;^D

butchyboy73 - as you can see from the map Truscott kindly supplied, it's not that far - I'd call it a 15 minute brisk walk, rather than the 25 minutes they allow, but it obviously depends on your walking speed. As to letting me know what you'd like to play, the sooner the better! ;^D

Plus a bit of an allowance for the fact that the second half at least is uphill all the way!
If I recall correctly the Staion and the venue are probably about the same level, unfortunately there is a river valley in the way! :D
Me, I'd get a taxi, but I'm lazy that way!

No 22 bus is what I would recommend from the google options.

Sorry didn't mean too. :oops:

I do think it'll be an excellent game. Organisation, equipment and, subsequently, tactics very different to WWII CoC.

And it looks amazing.
