[Oxford] Logistical problem
Entity: Christi
Location: Berinsfield

Entity: Shiny new tablet PC of doom
Location: Krys and Tommy's house in Oxford.

How to unite our unlikely heroine with her stuff and reap the ensuing flood of geeky joy, especially given that (a) I have no car, (b) Sarah is off all weekend pretending to be a big fluffy wolf and (c) I have no idea where Krys and Tommy live even if I could drive?

UPDATE: Problem solved. wimble is my new God.

Logistics

1) ring Krys and Tommy to ensure that they are in and to locate nearest train station

2) taxi/bus to train station

3) train to london, london - oxford or whatever line they are nearest to.

4) transportation to Krys & Tommy's house

5) reverse steps 4,3 & 2

6) install tablet pc of doom

7) Geeky joy for a Christi

Berinsfield is 5 miles outside Oxford. Going by London would not be smart. ;)

I could go on the bus and pick it up if this were an option, but I suspect that there are a number of boxes that would be difficult to transport by hand.

Don't transport by hand. Wear a very large hat, and transport them by hat.

Note: This can lead to loss when attempted on windy days

Okay, wasn't too clear where Berinsfield was...

Mmmm then in which case a taxi home would be your best bet.

If 'Tommy' = wimble ask him to drop it round?

He *could* be, but I really have no idea.

And of course I'd feel uncomfortable about asking someone I don't know to drive out 5 miles out of Oxford and back.

If he lives with quisalan then he is.

Ah, then yes. But the above still applies.

If memory serves me correctly he is quite a way from town centre - somewhere in greater leys I think. Drop him an e-mail (his address is on his LJ profile) and see what you can sort out. wimble is one of those rare birds of passage who do their very best to be extremely helpful (which is one of the many reasons I think he (and his strange foot fetish) are just a teeny bit fab.
