Looks Like I'm on board also PIP. My only question though, where on the pass is the return date?

Ahaaa, I did this a long time ago, in the early to mid 90's I think.

I still have the A4 printed certificate somewhere in my cupboard upstairs.

Looks like my name will be on Mars in Stereo eventually.

At that time I also sent my mother's, father's (both gone now), brother's and sister's names as well as that of my nephew who will be very happy to know they are planning it again.
So thank you for posting this.

Just had a thought. As we are going to be on the trip for about 7mths perhaps we should have a sing along to pass the time.

1,000,000 bottles of beer on the wall,
1,000,000 bottles of beer,
if one of those bottles should happen to fall
there'd be 999,999 bottles of beer on the wall.
999,999 bottles of beer.
Who's next? (Are we nearly there yet?).

999,999 bottles of beer on the wall,
999,999 bottles of beer on the wall,
but if one beer bottle should accidentally fall,
there'll be 999,998 bottles of beer on the wall.

(Still not there......)
