Re: Three Lions Tour: June Chilterns beerpacking

'stash a child' - seatpack? Anyroad, brill if you're in.

I really have to draw attention to my lie-ins pun. Pretty good in the time allowed I thought :grin: .

Silverstone - I've erased that memory, it was too traumatic. I'm still having therapy a year later.

Re: Three Lions Tour: June Chilterns beerpacking

Well we could get up a bit later in the morning, resulting in three lie-ins too :smile: .

Sam's also bailed then has he? Ah well, I never complain about a nice cosy threesome.

Maybe some last-minute contestants will sneak out of the woodwork.

I was being a bit cheeky - as well as the real one there should also be one for something not entirely unconnected to our esteemed proprietor :-bd .

Re: Three Lions Tour: June Chilterns beerpacking

Good point, should've remembered that. Well patently the game isn't going to work in this case then. I must have done it in the pub or something. Still, we can tie ourselves up in knots trying when we get there :smile: .

Re: The post man's been ...

"oxy torch". Hmm, yep worth a try. I'll probably have to be a bit quick with a C100 though - maybe just wave the torch in its general direction for a second or so; or I'd end up with a small pool of aluminium, a slight fleeting smell of butane, and singed eyebrows. After due consideration, I think s...

Ta for info Pete. I'm reasonably up on physics theory but hadn't applied any brain cells yet to obtaining the necessary pressure differential for it to presumably work.

Re: Three Lions Tour: June Chilterns beerpacking

When I mentioned going round in circles at one point, here's the bit I meant below. A surprising number of byways etc in one small area, joined up at various locations, with some fab views. I ride there occasionally and a while ago I thought it would be fun to work out a way of doing all the tracks ...

One of them there gas canister contents transfer valve things. If you see a mushroom cloud over Bedfordshire you'll know I've not read the instructions properly. In fact I won't have read the instructions properly because there aren't any. And I use bio-ethanol anyway. Er.

He let you have a go? Honoured you were!

Anyroad, are you coming down or what? Just get it sorted. Although, I don't think we're allowed to have too many of us in one place at the same time in case an asteroid hits and we're all wiped out, decimating forum numbers in the process.

That's a whole pride of lions there J(U)C! What's wrong with the middle of Manc? Couldn't you bivvy out on Piccadilly square or something? The 'hidden in plain sight' ploy cranked up to 11 that would be.
