What to Bring to LAN

At the moment it doesn't look like I will have my PC before the LAN, so I am wondering as a Noobie Lanner, what should I bring.

I had my Wii of course in mind with several games also but is there anything specific that I should or would be worth bringing?

And no I am not leaving MYSELF at home

Lots of spare clothes as your be getting wet a lot I suspect.
Bedding
Food and drink / snacks
Money for trips to tesco's or food from Linda
Spare battery's for the vibs wouldn't go a miss either although your best of asking Rash or Plat what size you need.

Back on a more serious note:

Wash kit & a towel (people start to humm a little after 2 days without a shower)
Earplugs (Plat can be quite loud after a few drinks and Yargh/Oddies snoring has been known to break health & saftey regs)
CD's for all your games/software, even the ones that you already have installed (you never know, bad things can happen to game installs at LANs)
If you can get hold of one, an air-mattress from Argos/Costco (well worth the £30, and infinitely more comfortable than a camping rollmat)
I know it's on the FAQ, but I'll add it again, a 4-way extension cable. There are usually spares, but you can't bank on this (and it's annoying when you've got to buy *another* one because you were packing in a hurry ( have about 12 now )

I will point out the most important thing Olly has forgotten...

ALCOHOL!!!!!!

Even if you forget something people generally have 'spares' (not alcohol though, noone carries SPARE booze)

We have spare airbeds with us at all times now. lol..

Re: What to Bring to LAN

And a Borat to English/English to Borat dictionary.

a Sense of Humour (failiure to bring this can have SERIOUS repercussions)

Also, I find a lax attitude to having your **** pinched at every turn by Rasher a bonus too.

Re: What to Bring to LAN

An apprecitation of Borat is optional, but preferable.

A muilti-ride ticket for the Fail Bus is also useful. I use mine quite a bit (mainly for COD4 Hax).

Also, if you have them, bring spare wheelchair parts/Electric windows for Plat, he breaks them at Lans you know...

We need a couple of these for Smiles and Jess..



And last but not least, Im bringing this, this time, and FULL!!!
