Who's up for a ridiculously bad idea trip to Wigan in August?



Wifey fcuked up our travel schedule by insisting on booking hotels before the fixture list came out and Forest are not at home whilst we are beavering around the U.K.   In a fit of pique (as in she felt guilty when the list actually did reveal her heresy) she looked at us legging it to Wigan from london on the train.   It only takes two hours but unfortunately we have luggage in tow so where does that leave us?   I don't fancy the idea of spending the night in a Wigan hotel (anything near Liverpool makes me cringe), and would like to head back to the Nottingham/Kegworth area after the game or possibly Manchester to scare the sh!t out of #angryordissapointed.

What do you peeps suggest?  Train much quicker but what to do with luggage as Train stations don't store anything anymore due to something called terrorism.  Car?  Driving from London to Wigan sounds like a bit of a slog. 

Train and then pick up a car?   Taking a train from London to the midlands on match day and picking up a rental at East Midlands airport?   Get Tricky to pick us up?  Ha!  

Teleportation?  

First world problems obvz!

Who will be going to the game?  Shady?  Tricky? (if we press gang him), Psychobel?  

This is of course very important and demands a thread all to it's self.  Drinks are on the missus.... (cough)..


Chicago: Waiting for a PM.  
If running is bad for your knees try hanging out with Russ and Tricky for a night.

Lift may be possible. I may go to the game as well. Need a think and am currently otherwise engaged.

Not sure if I'm going ...  Will have a gander at the calendar. Think we might be in Cornwall.

You could book a spot on the Forest supporters bus for the game... But then only use it for the Wigan to Nottm leg ?

I guess you could even come to my flat and leave luggage there ?

Would love to, but in France. Hoping to go to Caen v Mario Ballotelli's Nice instead.
