We will be visiting Perry Barr for our derive on Friday.
First I picked 15 places from the network that I liked the names of but had never visited.
Then I sent a text to Carole to pick a number between 1 and 10. (She didn't know what I wanted it for.) She picked 7.
I counted every seventh number and crossed it off, then continued counting and crossing off the seventh until only one place was left.
BUT - Carole said this is where her partner's parents live! Strange coincidence. So we tried again. Carole picked 9.
We got Long Buckby.
Only one stop from Northampton, where we will be starting from. Not much of a train journey.
We thought we would go further afield.
I repeated the exercise, having removed Kidsgrove and Long Buckby.
I got Perry Barr, near Walsall. Neither of us have been there before. That is where we will go.
