Re: Todays ride

Good one Shaf. Some eccentric stuff going on today - also see Ben C's jape round the corner. My humble contribution: couple of mates invited me for some beers in Tring tonight, two train stops down the line. Duly presented myself at our station, "Tring evening return please, Senior Railcard". Time 1...

Re: Shine Brighton you Crazy Diamond

Yep, superb Ben. We don't hear from you very often but when we do it's absolutely worth waiting for. A corkingly off-the-wall escapade as usual and one doffs one's hat (helmet?) to you. I think "doffing" is definitely a word that would be heard regularly on an RSF outing :smile: Curiously, I too LUR...

Re: The post man's been ...

New Brompton front bag - C type. Not OT since I use it for gigpacking (C). Current one 20 years old and also been my man-bag for everything else so done sterling service. Might pension it off as another toolbag now. Didn't fancy the tweed one then Reg? One day we are going to do a brompton bikepack...

Re: Todays ride

Really like that idea Sean :-bd . It's fun to pick a group of some sort of "feature" like that then tour round them, and maybe picking up an interesting fact or two at each place. Trigs - so now TrigPacking (C) to go with Gigpacking (C) ! The route mapping looks a bit like a yeti on its side so that...

Re: What's fueling the hate?

I always enjoy yours too James - always plenty of food for thought. (yep - Cleese though :smile: Stan (Idle): I want to have babies. Reg (Cleese): You want to have babies?!?! Stan: It's every man's right to have babies if he wants them. Reg: But ... you can't HAVE babies! Stan: Don't you oppress me!...

Sorry, I'm hogging this but I've been allowed out to play after her chores. I find the double-standards amusing too (and yes gawd knows I have plenty of my own).

Re: What's fueling the hate?

I guess everybody's got wants as well as wishes Stu, and it'd be a bit churlish to dismiss ALL of those wants as "unnecessary", "frivolous", "unfair" etc (not that I'm saying you are) :smile: . But yes I agree there's seems to be a lot more "don't care about the consequences" or even "I know about b...

Re: What's fueling the hate?

Yes HT it's interesting this double-standards or whatever you might call it. On the face of it the Press and people's reactions to your example (and there are many more of just that type) are totally skewed. Why? Maybe it is just the Press - surely 99% of normal people will form a sensible view of w...

Hope that all went well Steve. In my usual obscure way, one thing I was querying was your plans for August? I'm vaguely considering something round Daventry cos cheap/cheerful is a criteria for me in Aug.

Re: What's fueling the hate?

Interesting. I would think (or optimistically, "hope"!) that actual "hate" is a small percentage of the situation and varies from that to "mild frustration". I blame thatch. No, hang on, not the reeds-based bucolic country cottage roof-covering material. No that would be silly. I blame Th atch (" my...

Breathable? More like heavy-breathable I reckon. People pay good money to wear things like that in dungeons. Erm so my friend tells me.
