    What Exeter is like!

    You guys starting Recruit Training may want to take note because it's the closest main town to Lympstone.

    Three cinemas
    Five nightclubs
    Seven pubs
    Five restaurants
    One football team
    One rugby team
    Three sport centers
    Two swimming centers
    One golf course
    One airport - 6 miles away from town
    Shopping centers and highstreets
    Good transport

    Sounds good to me, but it is about 8 miles away from Lympstone but maybe after the first three weeks when your allowed out of site, you may want to head up to Exeter. You have to enjoy yourself out of training aswell :rolleyes:

    Seriously though I hope it's easy to score with the birds over there. Anyway, one step at a time. Pass PRMC, then your into RT and Exeter is just a bonus :laugh:

    A marine on my RMAD said girls go to exeter just for the marines, and if you tell them what week in RT your in, they will be able to tell you what phys you do every day haha.

    Lads ! take my word for it exeter is *text deleted**text deleted*!! you cant get in anyplace and even if you do theres trouble everywhere you go,

    they hate Marines simple as that, the only birds you can trap off with is birds who know more about nod training than the nod.

    if you like fighting chaves and *text deleted* the local bikes then dig out fellas, dig out.

    I also might have been to the blue door number 4!! end of dit..............

    That sounds pretty good to me, won't be looking for any new mates in the town so doesn't matter if they all hate marines, plus a few chavs to fight is always a bonus. And wont be looking for a long term partner either, so it don't matter how dirty the birds are *text deleted*

    Just to let you know there are a lot lot more than 7 pubs, there's more than that in the main high street alone.

    Also there are 4 KFC's, 1 McDonalds, 1 Burger King, 1 Pizza Hut, 1 Pizza King and about 350 Kebab houses!

    Just don't advertise the fact you are a nod mate.

    There can be a lot of trouble, but it's easy to avoid, just don't get involved, and its mostly after all the pubs have kicked out and the streets are packed.

    I've heard alot of clubs / pubs don't allow squadies in...but how do they know you're a squadie?!

    I suppose the big give away would be when you go as a big group of like 50 *text deleted*, but surely it would just make sense to go in small groups?
