Just to throw my pennyworth in ...
Bank Holidays are usually already taken up with other events (even worse now as I've joined the Sealed Knot and have to go and wave my pike at the Royalist scum - battles every Bank Holiday, but it is good, knackering and painful fun and there's always a beer tent to recover in in the evening!).
Any 'normal' weekend would be better (although every fifth weekend I need to be within easy reach of Northampton in case disaster strikes at the Uni!)
The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory!
