What I've learnt so far is that I need to freshen up my knowledge of English slang.

Which parts in particular tripped you up? It might just be my terribly punny name choices. 😀

Ah, well you aren't missing too much as they aren't all punny names.

Kendal is just a place.
Scunthorpe is... well... The C word.
The whores, er, haughs... are pronounced that way (at least everything I can find confirms this for British English).
Cottonshopeburnfoot is ridiculous without any rudeness.
Troughend just sounds dirty.

:LOL:

OK, I mainly didn't get the whores. ( :p ) And completely parsed past the cunt in Scunthorpe. :D
I didn't notice or could tell because its only been read and I don't know how the Brits pronounce "augh" and such.

I don't think I'll be able to make it this weekend but I could give you a list of UK town names to decipher. Starting with Towcester, where Keely the Discovery died on the way to the first meetup point of the 2016 roadtrip.

I had to read this multiple times before I noticed this wasn't about an actual person and not one of your land rovers. For a moment I was thinking "what the fuck?"

help me....

Well apparently it’s 7pm for you so booze is a possibility… and a reasonable excuse. :D

Would be a great one, but it's been a month since the last one...

No, no edibles or weed smoking either. I'm only adding this because it's legal here and wanted to cover bases...
