Pay Pal

It seems that I have a P pal account that I used once 15 years ago. I typed in my old email and the account came up with all my old and present addresses listed and my latest bank card number. A bit creepy and a bit too easy to access and start using. I'm a bit worried about the security with this. ...

I'm very close to Worthing (Angmering) and can probably help you with postage & costs if it would help to sell your stuff Rasta
Thanks for the offer. There is a Hermes pick up near me, so postage is not a problem. It is just sorting out receiving payment. But thanks again.

Thanks for the replies.
I've ordered another one as there isn't anything much better for desert thorns.
I am pretty sure that the pressure is high enough but I do feel it roll a bit when cornering tightly.

Re: TDF 2019

Such a shame for all the spectators on Cormet de Roselend who would have camped out in their 100's. Some up to a week in advance to get the best spots.

And it was bypassed.

The TdF is all about the spectators.

Re: Too Many Sleeping Bag Options!

A summer rated down bag may get compressed by the weight of a bivi bag. Especially the heavier 3 layer Gortex or when it is wet. A lot of cold spots.

Re: 6 Days in Southern California

Brought back some memories. I can remember camping out in the San Bernadinos with amazing views over LA - with bears trying all night to steal the food. Not an honest bunch. A bit nerve wracking when trapped in a bivi bag. Was that Hidden Valley Campsite in J Tree? If it was - I camped there for a c...

I dont see why not. Resupply might be more difficult if things are closed. Theres plenty of signs in various places demanding tyre chains for winter but its never high as such.

High season might be worse. Hotter and less accomodation available

Canoed and walked the GGW. Never cycled, but it's on the list.
A great trail for interacting with the wildlife. One morning, on the hike, I woke up with about 50 ticks crawling all over me.
And lochside camping with the canoe was midge heaven. Horse hair worms and Ospreys. Loved it.
