Well, here are some messages for you to peruse.
Note: these were various comments left via the "guestbook" function between 2000 and 2006. Since incorporating The London Men's Self-Help Pub Crawl Group into robertanwood.com, I have terminated the ability to add any new comments.

An excellent site - full of inspiration for some of my own pub crawls, and more neatly written up accounts too. Well done! A+Message posted Wednesday, February 22, 2006 at 17:02:17 (GMT)

Hello there!Message posted Tuesday, April 27, 2004 at 15:49:53 (BST)
Myself and some friends have been living what appears to be a life in a parallel universe!! Whilst doing a search for an up and coming mini-tour (pub crawl to general public) I've come upon your site. Bizarrely, we're doing the trip to Ljubljana in May and have noticed that you've done the same. Any thoughts or ideas? We're there for the weekend of the 21st May and are hoping to drink em dry.
As an aside, we've got a site www.blot.org.uk and would like to put your site up as another link, if that's ok with you.
Any comments, suggestions welcome and hopefully we'll catch you out on the piss sometime.

I have no idea how I found this site. I have spent a few hours at work reading each of your adventures. You seem kind of geeky but in a perfectly acceptable way, and you have an eye for detail and keen memory, which are to be admired.Message posted Tuesday, August 19, 2003 at 16:49:28 (BST)
Could you do another crawl soon please, I haven't got much work on.

I came across your site while doing travel planning for my summer in Liechtenstein. If you venture down for a second pub crawl this summer by chance, please count me in....assuming females can intrude on your event!Message posted Friday, March 21, 2003 at 19:45:55 (GMT)

You guys are a scream. You ought to take this activity to the BBC so that we can then copy it (as we always do) for TV here in the US. Who knows? If "Trigger Happy TV" can make it, maybe there is a livelihood to be made here. Keep up the worthwhile, rewarding and entertaining work.Message posted Thursday, February 06, 2003 at 22:08:32 (GMT)
Any suggestions for a St. Albans tour in April '03?

I was looking for resources on travel and hiking in Liechtenstein when I came across your site. I've now decided to bail on the whole 'travel and hiking' idea and instead get a few beers. Your reports are a model example of Beverotological field research and I applaud the effort. Keep up the good work.Message posted Tuesday, September 10, 2002 at 09:18:11 (GMT)

We were so impressed with the E2K crawl that we have decided to re-enact it this Saturday in honour of the occasion of the birthday of my esteemed colleague in the field of alcoholic turgidity, Mr. Machine. I will post a critique on our eventual return. Although I hope to exceed the 12 pints in 12 pubs in 12 hours motto. I think the early morning world cup inspired drinking has galvanised the entire nation into drinking harder and longer than ever before.Message posted Monday, July 15, 2002 at 20:54:51 (GMT)
A breath of fresh air this site. Or maybe, after a few brews a stale whiff of last nite's takeaway. Whatever; look forward to your next adventures but stop with the Queen music already. My neighbour insists on having Queen-based singalongs until the wee small hours & it hurts.Message posted Wednesday, May 29, 2002 at 19:51:21 (GMT)
Cheers & here's to more bizzare alcohol/public transport interfaces.
As an SW19 resident I was highly amused by your TramLink exploits and thought you might like to hear about the real Wimbledon pub crawl route in the much more upmarket Wimbledon Village area. One big bonus is that no public transport is required (or indeed available!).Message posted Friday, April 19, 2002 at 23:12:00 (GMT)
Start at the Dog & Fox in the High Street
Move on to the Rose & Crown towards Parkside on the right
5 mins walk down Southside to the Hand in Hand and the Crooked Billet next door
(Optional diversion via the Fox & Grapes)
Walk through the alley next to Kings College to the Swan on Ridgway
Move on down Ridgway to the King of Denmark
Loop round back down the High St to Brewery Tap
Walk back down Wimbledon Hill for a pint in the Alexandra (next to the station)
Only 9 pubs but they are all good and worth visiting.
Give it a go!
Hey hey, thought I'd see how long it takes you to check your site.Message posted Saturday, September 1, 2001 at 16:18:40 (GMT)
Liked the new average points system - though do feel you've sunk a level to "game show" cateogory (having arguments as to how to spell the word)......Next you'll be having some kind of "spin the wheel" system in place to decide drinks etc. Though carrying around a large "spin the wheel" edifice might be a bit hindering.
Would you consider taking a female out as a tourist venture...now there's a marketing money spinner....out on a trip if ever i was washed up on European shores..?
Hope all is going well,
Alice (and Mike)
PS Give a beery hello to Karen, Paddy and anyone else who vaguely recollects who I am..!
PPS etc (cheers, mike)

Inspring. That's one word used to describe inspring things. Such as this site.Message posted Friday, August 31, 2001 at 01:32:01 (GMT)
Gentelmen, u have inspired me to give up on higher education,
to seek and new pubs and beers,
and to throw up where no one has before.
Also I'm inspired to nick ur idea and use then in East London.
I noted with amusement the following within the Belgrave Walk/Surrey Arms section of the T2K pub crawl:Message posted Tuesday, July 31, 2001 at 14:27:05 (GMT)
"Before we left, there was something of a debate about what our strategy should be for the rest of the night, given the state of the Tramlink service."
I thought you'd already know this, but the strategy comes from downtown.

I loved your site, it was hilarious. Two years ago 2 girlfrinds and I were in London on holiday and hit 69 pubs in 7 days. Who needs to site see? We had to drink a pint in each and rate teh bathrooms. We kept a book that listed all the pubs. I also tried 57 different kinds of beer.
We do an annual Bar golf thing here where you have 9 holes (bars) and a dsignated type of drink that needs to be finished in the alloted time in order to score points for par. It's fine to double up, but dangerous early in the evening. Also every third bar is a shot bar and you cannot use the toilet. Keep up the fun work. Can you schedule pub crawl for April 2002 so we ladies can outdrink you?
well fellas you made it. Sounds like they know what they're doing in London. Probably need a Michigan chapter don't you think?Message posted Wednesday, July 4, 2001 at 12:51:26 (GMT)

I'm living here in the United States of America which is across that big sea from you folks! I just wanted to say howdy, and let you know how much us Americans love your English bitters and beers. We love to party hard here too in Texas, but our beer tastes like piss and comes in a bottle. Give me a musty old public house with Uncle Jack's Mouthwash Peculiar on tap any old day. Well I gotta go now, drop the kids off at the pool, plus Tom Landry's gonna be on the Superchannel, and I gotta get out and shoot some deer.
Knowing at least one of the progenitors of this august grouping I am biased in my opinion from the outset. None the less, I should like to express my heart-felt thanks to these Brave Boozy Troopers who have scoured the city to satiate their own base cravings. If I had the time I might have done the same and I only wish that I had.Message posted Tuesday, September 12, 2000 at 17:02:49 (GMT)
Well done men.
