How To Plan Your Trip To Action Repay 2003 or In The Front Door
By Col. John "Hannibal" Smith
So you're thinking about going to Action Replay for the A Team's 20th anniversary? Let me explain how to come up with a fool proof plan, a plan that will take you in right through the front door.
Pour your favorite beverage into a glass.
Place it near your favorite chair.
Be sure your cigar cutter, lighter, and ashtray are handy.
Be sure a notebook and pen are close to hand.
Take off your shoes.
Sit back in your chair.
Chose a nice large cigar, cut, light it, relax, and decide if you really want to go to the A-Team's 20th birthday party.
Once you have decided that going to the party is the one thing in whole world that you want most, decide how many days you can stay away from home.
You must decide if you are going for the con only, or if you
also want to see some of
Decide if you want to find a room mate. If so ask at the Action Replay list if anyone wants to share a room with you.
There is often a single supplement payment if you want to be alone. Sharing saves. Up to you.
If you are going for the weekend only, you will need a hotel for at least 2 nights. Ask your travel agent or look on the net. Most of the hotels have sites where you can see the hotel, rates and other important information. When you find one you like and can afford, reserve a room. This is the time to tell the hotel about any special needs you might have (waves cigar vaguely).
Now you must decide how to get there. Some East Wingers can just hop on a train, others have to fly into Heathrow or Gatwick.
There is a very inexpensive bus that goes to the train
Getting from the station to the hotel in
The con is over, you've met the Team, had fun, gotten photos and autographs. What next? If you are going straight home, go. If you are staying for a while, put Tourist plan into effect. You will have decided how long you want to stay, what you want to see, how you are traveling,
alone or with a friend. Tourist sights are easily found on the www. As above, decide what you want and reserve.
After making all your reservations, sit back and savor the joy of A PLAN COMING TOGETHER.
Very important things to keep in mind:
1) There are very cheap (under $400) transatlantic airfares
2) It is often less expensive to book thru the net than an agent
3) Don't forget to budget for tips and incidentals
4) Loose comfy clothes and shoes are a must for comfort on long trips.
5) If you order a special meal on a flight, you will be served first
6) If you have trouble walking or standing, ask for a courtesy wheelchair at the airport when reserving the flight. You will be checked in and boarded first. NO LINES.
7) Leave your inhibitions at home. This is The A-Team.
8) If you have any questions ask the Purplegimp for ideas or the TML team
9) Isn't it nice when a plan comes together (cigar smoke wafts upward)
Face's Helpful Hints for Packing
The very first thing to do is be sure your valet or butler polishes and shines your brand new leather matched set of suitcases.
Then, you will want to make yourself comfortable on the chaise lounge while your gorgeous maid carefully takes your clothes out of the closet and makes sure that each garment is clean, pressed and has all it's buttons, and hangs them carefully on the rack.
Between sips of vintage champagne, you will supervise the folding, with color coordinated tissue paper of your mix and match outfits. Your lingerie must be carefully folded and delicately placed in separate silk undergarment bags.
Be sure the suitcases are left open while you move on to the next stage: Toiletries and incidentals.
The best way to do this is to get into a nice hot scented bath and tell the maid which articles to wrap in tissue paper, and which to put in plastic bags. Be sure to include any medicines you might need, and don't forget your toothbrush and paste.
When all your toiletries are ready to be placed in your makeup case, have the maid hold a nice large warm fluffy towel for you. Wrap your hair in the towel turban style and put on your terry cloth robe.
Get your passport, tickets, detailed itinerary, credit card, some cash, and put them all in your travel wallet.
You are now ready to get dressed for traveling. You will want to wear something comfortable, yet stylish.
While you are doing you hair and makeup, check that your blow dryer, cell phone and battery charger are packed. If so, your suitcases are ready to be closed and you may leave for the airport!
