Only important question is who is going to end up staying in 119 ?


I guess of equal importance is, if you end up being handed the key to 119, will you have the nerve to refuse ?



Someone attending needs to knock on the door at 5am Saturday morning and snap a shot of whoever is in 119

I believe that was swiss and jever's room the year they came (2 years ago? 3?). I believe Keith mentioned the Ramada freshened the property over the winter, so presumably any traces of those two that cleaning couldn't remove are covered with fresh paint and carpets.

Thanks, I enjoyed owning it. But since I'll be in Australia for the next couple of years, the accident was somewhat providential.

I do indeed mean the year before. It may be awhile before I can accept this challenge. It's looking like I'll be leaving for Oz on the 17th. Not sure when I'll be back.
