Re: Garmin Screen Protector, do you still bother?

I always put a screen protector on, I don't think gorilla glass and the like is up to many thousand gritty finger swipes. My wahoo had one and that wasn't even a touch screen. It still got tatty rattling about when removed at cafés and so on. Fresh film on the screen and you realise how scuffed the ...

Any on the Twymyn or Dyfi? That'd be interesting to see.
Reintroduced on the Dyfi Reg. Down near the Osprey centre I believe.
Also some at the top of the Artists Valley at Blaeneinion. Just don't mention Covid or 5G.

Re: The Wolf Way

The section between Southwold and Lowestoft could be straightlined through Sotterley and you wouldn't be missing much.

I know a chap who did the section between Bury and Ipswich the other day and it was an utter mud fest so another reason it's not a year round route!

The other issue with nuclear being the cost and time to build, putting it out of near-term strategy. This comes alongside old plants going offline/being decommissioned.
