    Comment still stands. I was never good at these word things.

    Any more HEXUS.social nostalgia that I've forgotten about?

    Somewhere central and (most) easy to get to. Possibly from the maximum number who would actually be prepared to go there...

    Surprised no one said Bolton/Horwich (unless I missed it)

    Welcome back!

    I went for anything Birmingham and south, but I could possibly be persuaded up to Manchester.

    Was the first meet the one where we were all impressed by the Dyson hand dryer in Nandos? Can't believe that was 10 years' ago now...

    Not a newbie, but change in circumstances means a meet up is finally on the cards. BP or London both good for me.

    Re: HEXUS.social Redux - 10th Anniversary Edition

    Heh, has the entire Hexus.Social group been lurking for 8 years just waiting for tigs' return?! That's got to be a bit of a self-esteem boost!

    I've voted Manchester (obvs.) but Sheffield wouldn't be awful for me, and Brum might be possible depending on what else I had going on.

    Also, I don't know how many keen walkers/hikers we've got nowadays but I live pretty damn close to the Pennine Way these days if anyone would be up for a more outdoorsy event...

    Not so much - I am still IRL friends with a lot of them (I forget that some of them I originally met through HEXUS) and I may have posted it on social media last night... so you may see some old names appear over the coming days!

    However, HEXUS.social was one of the best things to happen to me back then, I started it on a whim when I was bored, newly single and needed some new people in my life. I'm so glad I did, I've got some amazing lifelong friends from it. Pretty much most of my notable friends I met through HEXUS.

    We're an interesting bunch and we've never had issues with discussion flowing. It is not a clique, everyone is welcome. We were all new to this once.

    I'm still hearing that they've come flooding back because you're back

    And it'll be nice having a few of the old faces around more often - hope we haven't messed it around too much for them

    A few of the friends I'm still in touch with I met online over 20 years ago ...
