Re: The post man's been ...

Always nice to come home to a surprise, two parcels one from that man in the middle Wales shed & a replacement camera after the old one was dying at the end of warranty.

Thanks Stuart for the stove and for the route down to Llani. Brilliant.

Re: One for Reg perhaps.

Not too much to do with cycling although there is cycling & the odd bivvy but Jasper Winn's book Water ways is quite a nice read.

Ties in nicely with the Canal boating on this thread.

Re: And the best place I ever slept was ....

I love the deciduous woods immediately to the west of Rhayader. I have slept there a couple of times over the years and it has always been very peaceful. There is something about it that feels "soft" and welcoming. I quite often try and include it when joining the dots on BB events. Si If it’s the ...

Re: What does your perfect event look like?

Just reading through the posts and have to agree that a ride to a grid ref to get the next waypoint sounds brilliant. Even better if all the points are on one map?
I’m sure it will be fun whatever you plan.

Great effort, that’s some trip! Especially the bottom of the moors bit.

Si is right about the Dartmoor way. A great way to have a story to tell...

Anyway, keep up not being soft!
