    Have made trips up north as far as Chorlton, powderkeg, epic and galactic, I must say I do enjoy the trip as it feels quite special and adds to the excitement

    Oh! Yeah, sure it’s not the cost of a holiday. Don’t I know it lol!

    But it’s still £2k! Let alone what your time is worth. Each to his own, man. Make sure your motor insurance covers the miles, :)

    Haha! Funnily enough it actually comes from a football fan site I used to spend a lot of time on. A guy with user name Zoltan was accidentally famous for it so someone coined the term and got it into urban dictionary with the definition. I enjoy his alternate “reverse Zoltaneering”

    Funniest group of people ever. Just massive bigots though, Lol!
