Hrm, I think I'd rather kill time in Portsmouth/Bristol with the local fliers. ;)

Don't worry about the terminals John. So long as you are on US 728 and UA938 we can find you.

My internet went out at home, so I'm just catching up here at a coffee shop.

Wow!! Thanks so much everyone!
I had to google the 1783 reference. How about we say you guys Rock! :ani_punk:

As far as recognizing me when I get out of immigration: How about I just wear an iQuad thong? Hmmm, they may not let me into the country though. You'll spot me anyways--I'll be the one bouncing up and down with excitement.

I've been to London a few times, so I can skip that, given the cost. Playing around Portsmouth sounds fine to me. I'm also open to any other suggestions you folks might have about a stop somewhere in between Portsmouth and Bristol.

All sorts of things for all sorts of tastes. I have a trip coming up in the next few days so, while wasting time in airports, I will try and put down some thoughts of attractions and sights vaguely between Portsmouth and Bristol, bearing budget in mind.

I thought the Treaty of Paris would be part of the standard curiculum stateside! I may have to put a few historic sights into the list to boost your history knowledge Mike ;)

Is there somewhere that one could fly kites in sight of Stonehenge?

Likewise the ancient chalk hill side carving just north of Dorchester? <grins>

Glastonbury Tor?

Camelot?

I was thinking of taking them to the treacle mines at cheddar or to see spaghetti growing in the vine fields of Salisbury plain.... but I'm sure we can come up with lots of suggestions ;)

Stonehenge is stitched up pretty tight. You could get over the other side of the A303, but the road would spoil the photo opportunity, and it would mean flying in planted fields - not on really. You might get away with it, if one felt like a spiritual experience of flying, at Avebury. But while I actually think it is a much more interesting site, it doesn't have the photo appeal or the world renown.

Don't know on the others. And, yes, I know why you were grinning - wing tip stand on the, well, tip going through your mind by any chance? :)
