Re: What are you drinking now?

A very nice espresso martini, made with very nice freshly ground beans, good vodka and coffee liqueur. Absolutely no idea why the extravagance but it’s very nice :-bd

Re: Veloviewer map - explorer tiles

Nope, only noticed it today. I like it, that feature is one of the things I like about apple photos, it’s like a little photo album of your travels.

Re: Off topic: salmon or mackerel?

I did six months of weekends as a deck boy on a prawn trawler in Moreton Bay when I was 14. They'd always chuck a long trawl line out on the way back and pull in a few big mackerel. There was a small gas BBQ on the boat. Some one would gut and fillet them and stick them on. I'm still pulling the bo...

Re: Off topic: salmon or mackerel?

I like mackerel, in fact I had a couple yesterday with some nice eggs :-bd
I worked on a fishing boat in the English Channel when I was younger, sometimes we’d Chuck a couple of feathers over the side and have them fresh cooked in a little butter, every bit as good as the cod I’ve just finished.

EDIT: Actually, a smaller cooking kit can also fit into a stem bag. So no much issue here.
I carry my 400ml ti mug in a stem bag, as an additional bonus a standard water bottle fits in the pot, this makes extracting the bottle easier :-bd

THE BICYCLE CORPS: AMERICA’S BLACK ARMY ON WHEELS

What a fantastic film, a bit like RSF but turned up to 11, a great piece of social and cycling history.

Re: European travel planning ?

Depending on your green credentials I wouldn’t discount flying, I did the C2C in 2019 and flew home for £19 + bike, for me it was dead easy, train to Birmingham international, shuttle to airport and relax. Obviously post Covid the cheap flights might disappear and environmentally that’s probably for...

Hope you mend soon, I broke my left elbow a few years ago in a crash , bloody hurts, two months off work as I used to climb for a living.
