    That's awesome man, one of these years I"m going to break down and go to 70 000 tons of metal. It would be so bad ass.

    yeah most of us on the 70k forum figured it would be way later in the year for 70k 2013, I do hope they will pull it off and sell enough tickets for both.

    i'll try and do both, have paid for Barge already :kickass:

    So next 70k will head to Cockburn Town, Grand Turk Island.

    They seem to have two beers listed, I'll look for that instead of getting sun, as usual :loco:

    So the sister cruise of 70k is Barge to Hell, coming up in about 15 days, still 10 more bands out of the promised 40 to announce...

    Just in case anyone needs to be pushed into going with me, here are the 30 bands that are announced:

    Even though Hypocrisy cancelled Barge To Hell was amazing!
    Had the time of my life! (Well, Bochum was just different, can't really compare it), it felt even better than the first two 70k trips I've made.

    Going on my fourth UMC cruise in 37 days (as of the countdown to departure on their website), I must be nuts. 4 trips to Miami for cruises in 24 months...
    Add to that 2 other US trips + plenty of Swedish and European trips and festivals, I must be a daft one. But, I am having fun!

    The upcoming 70k 2013 I don't have that many bands I care for though, yet, still at least 11 more bands (and likely 2 extra) to be annoucned, lets hope for something I'll enjoy a lot.

    Hm, that makes me think a little bit. Maybe a person like me must be a daft one, not even feeling the need to go there for those cruises and not being able to manage so many trips. :confused:

    Veterans can start booking for the next cruise on Monday, need to find two more cabin mates that can pay up front, then book one of the cheapest cabins, then the long wait starts.

    304 days to go...

    About 74 more days until the next crusie.

    Just hours ago Cripper were announced and a few days ago The Haunted.

    Looking into booking my tickets today.

    Also will see Amon in Tampa two days before and Ft Lauderdale the day before the crusie.

    Metal vacation \m/

    So heading over for the cruise again, leaving for Tampa in one week, then the cruise about 1 week after that.

    Good times!

    Say hi to the CCB guys if you drop by. Hard to believe it was almost 3 years ago that you visited me there before I moved back to Belgium.
