If I had got this far in my Snoutcast listen-through by the time I had sent my birthday postcard in, I could probably have better described my location as "basically thirty miles north of where Downton MF Abbey is set" - at least, according to this source. Equivalently, I live pretty plausibly half-way between Platform 9¾ and Hogwarts.

I have vague hopes of running a DASH in that neck of the woods, give or take twenty miles, some day. Granted DASH has so far been typically a city event, but perhaps it could be adaptable to something a little more transport-y as only the puzzles are timed.

Thanks, Chris! We think transporting DASH to more varied locations is a very worthwhile pursuit, and know at least one person in the UK who might be able to help you with that. :)
