    Hmm.... You may be getting close to my dad's total with the amount remaining to do although he has done airport ones but still has a bunch to do in Scotland close to double figures from memory. I'll find his figure out when I go to visit next Friday.

    Scotland by public transport is challenging to say the least! However, the train journey from Glasgow to Fort William is truly magnificent (it wasn't raining). The one to Wick is dull in comparison with the highlight being that parts of the Northern end of it are completely bare apart from the railway itself, no buildings, walls, roads, trees or any sign of habitation just totally barren moorland.

    I was in the Kings Tun on Friday night with my son and at 9.00pm they asked us to move as they remove about 15-20 tables and have a disco Fri and Sat. So they turned it into a micropub.Six bouncers (doormen)on .They also checked all ID for those younguns that were already in the pub .Thought it was a bit big brotherish but was leaving anyway. Great beer great prices.

    That's the trouble with the Lloyds bars, it's unusual to find one with decent beer. They've sold off a whole load of them but there are still some where they start playing crap music at around 21:00 on weekdays as well.

    With three closures at Dagenham, Swansea and Aberdeen Airport the adjusted totals are :-

    Open Spoons visited 851
    Open Spoons not visited 16
    Airport Spoons 15

    Total 882

    No known changes now until the two new Norfolk ones next month. No new visits for me until April!

    I asked my Dad about his numbers and from his pamphlet he has created regarding the pictures he still needs to take/receive off myself or you.... His figures stand at out of the 1100 pubs Wetherspoons have opened he's been to 1060 of them so has 40 to do including Airports and Ireland. The odd anomaly in his list was the Aberdeen one that's closed before he's done it apparently yet on the list it wasn't highlighted as one he needed to do for a photo so might be removed from total as he can't do it.
