I would but there's not enough hours in the day, I'm thinking of putting 
up a petition to have days extended to 40 hours :-)

Seriously though, there aren't really any exciting museums around Devon, 
well not unless you're an Agatha Christie fan, in that case, Torquay is 
the place to visit :-)

What I would like to arrange is a trip down to Goonhilly in Cornwall, I 
went a couple of years back when I went to Cornwall on holiday.  Not 
sure if it's still open though, I heard rumors that it was closing.  
Saying that though, in our neck of the woods, we can't even get the 
folks in Cornwall to agree to a LUG meeting, never mind a day out!
