It sucks!

It's not affected me at all, but my folks flew out to Egypt on Wednesday... just before it all started.

I'm hoping it doesn't carry on for more than 2 weeks. :)

Sorry to hear that Rab. Almost home yet so far! Remember no petting or sex on the beach if you want to leave their country!

I do love this quote from the AP:

"LONDON — Officials further extended no-fly restrictions over Europe Saturday as a vast, invisible plume of grit continued to billow out of an Icelandic volcano and drift across the continent."

Sounds all very dubious to me...

It's like close encounters when they said there was a train crash and nerve gas released. Maybe an alien spaceship has landed in the Atlantic and they don't want planes to see it? Ooh. The,conspiracy :P

I don't think about it at all because I've not flown in 21 years.

It's not because I'm afraid of flying (I'm not). I just have a problem with crowded places and excessive security. To put it in some context, my last holiday away was summer 2006 and was a static caravan in Cornwall.

I also don't think foreign holidays are value for money, but I'm a skinflint. :)

I'm currently concerned about my flight on the 28th to Orlando. Currently following a number of forums, news sources and twitter accounts to keep as informed as possible.

Friends flights to Orlando tomorrow with Virgin on Monday were canned today and they are trying to re book. Hopefully your flights will be OK.

I wish I was going back to Orlando as to me, it's the best place on earth. I love it there. Fingers crossed for you Murray.

I'm sure the recruitment posters said something about "Seeing the world" ... so stop complaining Rab! :P

A friend of mine is on month long tour of India, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Hong Kong and finally Dubai before flying back to the UK. Luckily for him, Dubai is the last stop in a weeks time and he has family there...so he's hoping that the flight ban continues so he can have an extended holiday.

It should be finished in a few days, the issue will be with all the backlog of flights!

Rab: Just heard they were sending the HMS Albion to pick you guys up, although apparently it might call in at Spain to see if it can help. Good luck with it! Hope you get back soon and OK.

Rab: More news, BBC are reporting from outside the base in Cyprus now, just restating what you've said.

Looks like the F1 teams are going to try to head back via Santander too, personally I think it's just another product placement excuse for Santander!

It looks like more eruptions from the volcano and airports closed until at least 1300 BST.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
