Not exactly Lancaster but I'm from Preston if that's any good? We Lancastrians aren't very well represented so it seems. Rolling Eyes

Great, although we seem to have lost Lancaster Lad somewhere. Rolling Eyes

What's the collective term for Peak Oilers? A worry of Peak Oilers? I'll have to give that one some thought... Confused

I wasn't home, after having to ride my bike up the M40 after the shooting I had to go chill out some at a friend's house.

Where did you go in Manchester?

Not good about the shooting. Had you been at the bikers thing too?

Started at Kro Bar in Piccadilly then over to Via Fossa on Canal Street. Had a great night as haven't been out in Manc for ages & was great to see my mates. I managed not to start preaching about PO. Laughing

What's your fave Manchester venue?

I would drag you over to Bury but not very handy for Haggis et al really. Manchester city centre is probably the best place to meet.

Manchester city centre's a bit of an expensive night tho. Rolling Eyes

I like loads of the bars there, and I quite enjoy the bars in Canal Street although I've not been there often, usually getting dragged along on nights out. I don't know the area that well, not being from Manc, so I tend to follow where the others lead... Chorlton also has some good bars. Cool

Lancaster Lad is here! Been in Oz for a while and then on a cycling holiday.

If I'm not contributing to these forums, I'm browsing them.

Hello Lancaster Lad. Very Happy

Australia - think of your carbon footprint! Surprised Wink

Do you fancy meeting up with us other PO Northerners in Manchester? Look at the other thread on the go.

Eternal - I won the flights and a weeks accomodation. We had a further three weeks there which we paid for. Had that not been the case I doubt I'd have been able to afford to go. Sad

Whilst there I was impressed by the way those in the countryside are starting to store water both in dams and storage tanks.

What I wasn't impressed with was the poor thermal quality of the house construction - paper thin walls with no insulation. Where we stayed the first week, when it got cold at night we were told "oh, just stick the electric fire on"

If the home had some thermal mass and insulation they'd be able to keep them cooler by day and warmer by night. It was a real eye opener.
