Timeline of Dan & Phil's IRL meetings

Post by felucca » Sun Feb 05, 2017 10:39 pm

Timeline of Dan & Phil's IRL meetings
before they both moved to Manchester


This is a timeline of Dan & Phil's early meetings, before they moved to live in the same city. It includes how often they traveled to see each other, how long they stayed for, and what they did (that we know of). At the time, Phil lived in Manchester and Dan in Reading, which is a 3½ hour train journey.

Visual version:
pink: #confirmed - they definitely spent this time together
blue: debatable - maybe they did, maybe not (not sure when they left/arrived)
grey: no possibility of seeing each other, because of vacation or similar
white: they did not spend this time together, period

    (September 16 - Dan moves to Manchester!)
Note: As you can see the dates start getting a bit patchy in 2010. This is because Phil stopped dailyboothing completely and Dan's booths grew very infrequent. They also stopped tweeting every single time they went to a train station, which is just unhelpful tbh.
Detailed version:
Under the cut is the ridiculously long and detailed version of this timeline, that proves all of the above dates with screenshots. There's also a google doc version.

9 Nov Dan goes home:
Image

Image
Image
Image

30 Nov-4 Dec Dan’s week with Phil, hanging out, filming AmazingDan, interesting Dailybooths and cherry tweets etc

Image
Image
Image
Image

4 Dec Dan goes back home:
Image

Image

(5 Dec Dan posts his #distancesucks tweet)
(6 Dec Phil posts a Dailybooth saying “I had the best week ever last week” and talks about how he’s looking forward to Dan’s next visit.) (srsly, such good friends) (but again there's a Phan Timeline for that kind of stuff)

Dan went to Phil’s place, they saw Avatar at the IMAX and the day after they were supposed to go to the Sheffield gathering, but ended up not being able to. (Instead they stayed at Phil’s place.)

15 Jan Dan arrives:
Image
Image
Image

16 Jan They end up not going to the gathering:
Image

17 Jan Prrrrobably the day Dan went home:
There are no tweets or anything indicating when Dan went home again, but since he was working weeks at the law firm at the time and 15-17 Jan was Friday-Sunday I think it would be safe to assume he went home the 17th.

DAN VISITS PHIL RANDOMLY AGAIN
22(?)-24 Jan 2010
Arrival date is anyone's guess really as all we have is the departure date, but 22-24 would have been Friday-Sunday.

here's Phil coming home:
Image
Image

FILMING AMAZINGDAN + GOING TO THORPE PARK
19-21 or 22 May 2010
(uncertain which date he left, 21st is probably the most likely)

19 May They meet up in London:
Image
Image
(apparently Phil had some kind of meeting in the city?)
Image

19 May Dailybooth from London:
Image
(Notice how Phil is wearing exactly the same clothes as in AmazingDan – this was the visit during which they filmed it.)

21 May They go to Thorpe Park (an amusement park halfway between Reading and London):
Image
Image
(Saw is a rollercoaster)

(Unclear exactly when Phil went home, but it's likely they went their separate ways after Thorpe meaning Phil got home the 21st.)

23 May Phil's definitely at home and early in the morning too (= he must've slept there):
Image

TRIP TO PORTUGAL
27 May-3 June 2010

27 May Departure:
Image
Image

28 May Portugal tweet:
Image
(the Q&A he's referring to is pinof2)

Image

E3 IN L.A.
11-18 June 2010

(they got chosen for the E3 trip in May)
Image

11 June Departure:
Image
Image
Image

17 June Dan posted a vlog filmed in L.A. where he and Phil talks about the trip but it’s since been privated. Plenty of other footage around though – Phil still has his channel PhilatE3 up with two videos, PJTheKick and Paperlilies have vlogs from there, Dan’s “Stalker prank call” was recorded in L.A, and a guy called Will Francis uploaded a vlog they’re in (first video on his YT channel. And more.)

Picture from Dan's L.A. vlog:
Image

18 June, Phil's home again:
Image
Image

19 June Dan doesn’t tweet about getting home but there are no signs of him being with Phil and he tweets A LOT of other random crap so I think it’s safe to assume he did go home:
Image


JUST TWO BROS HANGING OUT PLAYING VIDEO GAMES
26/27 June-5/6/7 July
Hard to tell exactly when Dan arrived and left.

25 June: Dan's home:
Image

That evening he goes to a party (without Phil):
Image
Image
Image
Image

26 June The next evening both D&P tweet about Muse at virtually the same time:
Image
Image
^This could be a sign they were together, but then again it might as well not be

27 June They are both spotted in Manchester together, so Dan's definitely there by now:
Image

28-29 June, They play Playstation and watch a thunderstorm:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

30 June-3 July Not much to go on here but it seems they keep playing games:
Image
Image

4 July, They arm wrestle, ofc they do:
Image
Image

5 July, Socks:
Image

Somewhere around this time Dan leaves, the 5th, 6th or 7th.

7 July Dan’s definitely home as he gets an Xbox in the mail:
Image

(Fun fact: Sometimes D&P play video games while they’re apart as well)
Image


YOUTUBE TRIP TO JAMAICA
26 July-5/6 Aug 2010
(Jamaica: 26 July-1 Aug
D&P hangout: 1-5/6 Aug)

Here is a video compilation showing D&P’s trip to Jamaica with correct dates based on videos by the dailyvlogging youtubers on the trip and tweets by everyone. Here is a playlist of all the vlogs shot by the dailyvloggers.

The trip is also heavily documented on D&P’s own channels:
Underwater Lion Roar
Dan Vs. Phil
The Lion of Inflatable Destiny
argblarbleawblrwarblgablrblewablbll
Extreme Tubing Fail

Here's a lovely photo:
Image

Image

Image

2 Aug Dan's Dailybooth:
Image

3 Aug When I said they went home I meant they went to Phil's:
Image

4 Aug Editing:
Image
Image

It's hard to say when Dan went home but he must have stayed the night as they're putting the video up then. He left either the 5th or 6th.

6 Aug He was definitely home by this point:
Image

(7-8 Aug Dan goes to SitC. Without Phil this year, as Phil's in the middle of packing as he's moving)
Image
Image

(13 Aug Phil actually moves into his new apartment)
Image
Image
Image

VISITING PHIL'S NEW APARTMENT+ filming Truth or Dare 2
?15-21 Aug 2010
(unclear when exactly he got there, but he was there the 15th)

(Fun fact: 14-15 Aug was the first night Phil ever slept in his new apartment)
Image

15 Aug Dan helps Phil move in:
Image

16 Aug Luke asks about their living arrangements:
Image

16 Aug They watch Inception #cosy:
Image

16 Aug Like Dan says in Truth or Dare 2, he got the plague in London on his way to Phil:
Image

17-19 Aug Dan’s ill, I presume

20 Aug They go ahead with filming Truth or Dare 2 anyway:
Image
(you can hear Dan being ill in the video)

21 Aug Dan goes home early in the morning:
Image

(25-30 Dan goes to Reading festival without Phil)

Image

STICKAID AND MUSE

Image
Image

2 Sept They film the StickAID videos (this one and this one):
Image

3 Sept, Dan tweets about the same videos
Image

5 Sept, Zoo day:
Image
Image

7 Sept, Went to the cinema:
Image

No tweet to be found from Dan but between 8 and 9 pm people tweeted him this:
Image
so I think it's safe to say there used to be a tweet

8 Sept, at the supermarket together:
Image
Image
(the second screenshot is from a different timezone, that's why it's from Sept 9)

9 Sept, at Hard Rock Café:
Image

10 Sept, Planned to do a liveshow together but it didn't happen:
Image

11 Sept, The long-awaited Muse concert:
(remember how they booked these tickets way back in 2009?)

Image
Image

12 Sept, The day after the concert, Phil leaves from Dan's house:
Image

DAN MOVES TO MANCHESTER!
16-17 September

16 Sept Dan's all packed:
Image

17 Sept Phil films his video "I ate Mario" in which Dan appears:
Image
quote from 'I ate Mario':
Phil: Also, guess who just moved to Manchester...
Dan: Rawr!
17 Sept, Phil (and Dan?) goes to a party:
Image

Aaaaaand now they live in the same city, so that's probably a good place to end this.
