Re: The post man's been ...

A screech of tyres, door swung open and box placed by the door, before the Amazon delivery driver flew off to his next stop....

New Fuji XP140 waterproof camera to replace the one in Torquay harbour...

Whoops and yippee. Maybe a floating strap this time.

Re: WRT Grid Ref's.....

No idea but with your pack rafting, you’ll be able to get to the traditional grid ref out to sea or in the middle of a lake!

Personally, I’ve got a few places I’d like to visit so I might disregard them totally!

If Hermes counts then New running trainers.

The postman did deliver though, UV filter for a Rollei 35 for a bit of retro photography and also tide time tables for N. Devon, Cornwall and Plymouth.

Must buy some bike things or at least a tee shirt! :grin:

There's an interesting Facebook group "The Lost Cromford and High Peak Railway" that has some great photos to enjoy!

Is there still the van place in Llangurig?

Stopped at the cafe next door and enjoyed trying to see which vans were big enough to sleep in.

For the price it's a bargain and will match a BB Jersey.

It's got to be better than a 6 Yr old Specialised lid which let's the sweat into my eyes... At least I'll be able to see what I'm crashing into!
