    Default New pub visits 2019

    New "season" starts tomorrow!

    Good luck to all with their targets / challenges.

    I will aim for 200 new pubs again.

    I have also upped my game doing more reviews lately - I'll se how close I can get to the 1000 club by the end of the year.

    I am very close to 1000 photos so I will try to get close to 1500.

    I think I have set my sights a little high but you never know!


    I am a salmon !!

    257 new pubs is the 2019 target, as that will get me over the 4k barrier. Should be do-able with a bit of decent planning (I suspect I'll be ticking off a lot of London Zone 1 for low-hanging fruit).

    Trip to Chester already planned for Feb, so should get 20-25 over that weekend.

    Give us a shout when up north, although Chester is a bit far from Stockton!

    PS the Birkenhead merseyrail should offer quite a few.

    Chester itself (unexplored bar Brannigans - LOL - 15 years back) provides a lot of decent options. A half day down towards Wrexham will bag a recent National CAMRA POTY as well

    If that's the one by Ruabon Station then it's well worth an extended stay.

    Just to record that I'm starting on 2083 visits.
    I'm hoping to keep on top of new JDW outlets but a lot will depend on events in Ireland. It looks like a new one will open at Diss but I predict that the first one may be the one on Glasgow Central Station. I plan to get to the new Titanic outlet on Stoke Station and the new one at Trentham (don't ask, it's part of Stoke is all I know) which should open fairly soon.
    I already have five stays away planned for the first quarter of 2019 but one is in Loughborough mainly to do a return trip on the Great Central line so there won't be many new pubs.

    I decided on an extended stay and so far it has lasted 4 years!
