Had a great time with Mr Lain in #Manchester City today . We set off from Skellingthorpe around 8am where he drove us to #Meadowhall shopping centre. We paused for a #McDonald’s before getting a tram to the train station, then a train to Manchester. We had tried four bookshops looking for second hand Fighting Fantasy gamebooks but nothing had turned up. One shop had even closed down and turned into a winebar. Finally we found Paramount Bookstore in Shudehill. Pretty early on in the search I found Sagard The Barbarian book4. It’s in used but acceptable condition. Mark would then go on to scour the shelves and bring up a signed copy of an early Citadel Of Chaos, an early copy of Fighting Fantasy-The Introductory RPG, a clean copy of Battleblade Warrior with black dragon logo, and a copy of Starship Traveller but we left that as it was in shit condition. All in all a great adventure and a pleasing result. Also visited the Museum Of Science and Industry afterwards.
Let’s hope work flies by today with such a busy weekend ahead. I have #Manchester tomorrow with Mr Lain, and then meeting up with Claire on Sunday. It’s rained here during the night and is still dull and overcast. Gonna tidy up the rooms, and get showered before bed. Won’t have time in the morning. Best charge the camera and phone up as well. Kit out my rucksack.
My Riddler’s Roamer #travelbug has been taken all the way to #San Diego , #California . ( Thanks Aaron)
I’m so thrilled its gone five and a half thousand miles in such a short time. It was in Baby Masons #geocache so long I thought it had been lost until it was moved to the place Aaron picked it up. Then bang! All the way round the world. Here’s hoping the current holders of my other two #travelbugs get themselves into gear. Gonna feel like a travelbug myself this weekend!!
