Re: Bivvy a month 2019

Yep, 3LT for me too. 6/6, 6/12, 41/41. Next BaM planned for end of July which is too long to wait, however it should be a good one - starting on a hill below sea-level at a railway station that you can't get back from to a beach that's miles from the sea. What jinks to work it all out eh! https://li...

Re: Three Lions Tour: June Chilterns beerpacking

RRHHHHAAAARRRHHH!!! Yes, the "3 Lions Tour" was a cracker. Sadly losing much-missed BDS and Pickers for various family reasons, and ditto MuddyPete ages ago (although a shout here for originating the scheme), and no last-minute new takers (c'mon guys we're not that bonkers. Ah no, we are aren't we),...

Re: Broken Riders - Joining The Party (Long Read)

Bit of an anagram of "King Bear Bones" there Rich - which sums up how you seem to be getting yourself through it all. What a story. I'll make the fatuous "thoughts are with you" comment 'cos it's true. Best wishes for the recovery stage mate.

Yeah you've pointed me at The Maccs a while ago - I'll go and have another dose I think. I can feel a gigpacking plan forming :smile: . Right, just off to 'do the washing up' :wink: - that there Pup is quite insane.

A wet Friday afternoon in Aber - that's heaven right there :smile: .

Re: Yay, it's cheery Friday.

Well nobody's been cheerful for ages. Got a number of things on the negative side of the Cheery Scales at mo so need to balance it a little. So two simple pleasures: Really looking forward to the "3 Lions Tour" BaM tomorrow. Come on you last-minuters, it should be a good match. Secondly, I can't bel...

Well RC, you should certainly be awarding yourself lots of 'I wasn't soft' stickers if nothing else! Top effort there. Unless I misread it, do you need to have another bash at it then?
