Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A second-hand Greyhound Bus has just left London, heading
    for Australia - ETA about THREE MONTHS. Cost per ticket:- £3,000.
    Can you imagine a load of RR's/Romfters being stuck on a bus....
    for three soddin' months, putting tents up at night, eating, washing,
    sleeping and manking together?? - with the occasional Hotel/Motel
    stop-over thrown in along the way!
    An overland bus journey of this magnitude would surely end in
    murder and mayhem....or could us RR's/Romfters co-exist happily,
    while singing "The wheels on the bus go round-and-round!!", for
    about ninety days. I realise that most of us have *dual identities*,
    and we all have many differences of opinion on stuff, but casting
    aside all these differences of opinion on Gayness/Straightness/
    Sexual Fantasy etc here in Cybersville - d'you think you would
    survive the trip in the real world?

    It certainly would be a F***ing interesting Journey!!


    Australia is on the bus map
    A BUS service has been launched linking Britain with Australia. A one-way ticket for the 12-week trip - which will visit 20 countries including Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, China, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia - costs £3,750.

    The journey is said to be 50 times more environmentally friendly than a Boeing 747 flight from London to Sydney. There is one flight from East Timor to Darwin in the Northern Territory, but the entrepreneur Mark Creasey, 37, is looking for a ship to ferry the bus across.

  2. What's the baggage allowance, or is it just steaming kit?
  3. I'll drive!!
  4. Nics,flip flops and snorkel and dont forget the mayo!
  5. There's a few countries that some of us might not
    be allowed to pass through on this trip though.
  6. Nearly 4,000 quid for a bus ticket? Ken Livingstone would love the idea.
    You could get a return 1st Class ticket on an airline for that, and not have someone horrid and with B.O. sitting close beside you; all a bit Crocs and veggie burger.
    Sounds like a scene from 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert'.
    As for everyone on here getting along - most of us are too ffing old for that kind of malarky.

    That's emptied the bus :dwarf:
  8. Well then, it saves people for becoming death! Ops, sorry meant deaf!
  9. Are you sure that's not the Virgin Cross Country - Plymouth to Newcastle train?
  10. About as quick as the ones we used to get to Collingrad from Stoke in the olden days.
    That was a journey and a half.
  11. With the busses doing 0-60 in about a week and trying to "race" each other along the dual carriageways holding everything up behind them!!!
    What a laugh!!.......
  12. I wonder if they accept Scottish Bus Passes
