Re: If we close up for a bit...

Yep, reckon that's the conclusion we came to.

Doesn't stop some of us burbling on about it though as if we had nowt better to do :grin: .

Re: New jerseys - orders are now open.

Posted to ask inches v sizes but deleted post cos they're in that teeny box on the sales page! Doh. Can see them when enlarged. Dithering here like someone being offered one caramel wafer now or two wafers tomorrow. Last time had an M SS cycling jersey but it only just fits over one baselayer. That ...

Ouch, what kind of diameter are those Reg? Are they a press fit or screwed in / held by mechanical means? 10" press fit. Seals gone, coolant in oil; new rings and a couple of pistons while we're at it. Ker-ching. X_X . Lucky still used in ships etc. Growing sunflowers much more sensible pastime. ht...

As you know I'm just letting off steam here, and exploring what's going on from the BP perspective. I actually feel mega-guilty every time I leave the house to go shopping. And the V-WRT was a hyper-guilt trip - I kept disappearing into hedges and things every time I saw anyone! My lass is at Sheffi...

Thanks for that KT, well spotted. Amusing they reckon people are scaredy-cats and can't camp alone :smile: . Maybe that's why they think things aren't "straightforward".

Re: New shelter time!

Yep, once granny has been sold I might join you :smile: . If anything it seems to have too much headroom, but that's probably camera angle plus me being a shortarse. Is the 440 excl pole n pegs (n lines?)? Their wsite says 437 for 'the shelter' so presume so?
