BaM 2020 Emergency Rules.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Mon Mar 23, 2020 7:14 pm

Seeing as we appear to be heading rapidly towards Defcon 1, it's probably about time we made a few alterations to the BaM guidelines. I suggest the following until further notice.

1/ Your own garden will now count. However, no running back off inside at 3am if it starts raining.

2/ Trips 'on foot' will now count. My reasoning is that it's perhaps easier to practice sensible social distancing when not restricted by a limited RoW network. Before anyone from Scotland says anything - yes we know, thank you.

Thanks! Gives me the chance to try that old Scout dinning shelter out as a tarp in the back garden...

I was going to gift a piece of my back garden to a mate, bivvy in it after riding 50 laps of the front and back gardens, ride another 50 laps, sorted. Obviously can't get the legal niceities done until after its all over but a verbal contract is law (sort of) in Scotland so thats all fine!

We've got new neighbours (well they moved in just before Xmas), about time they started thinking we were weird :lol: Actually our lawn is the only flat bit of ground surrounding the three houses!

Yessss. Legally allocated potter up the valley and back followed by a garden bivi. Perfect.

Time to get out the crappiest sleeping bag and leakiest bivi to finally be laid to rest by the claws of a thousand urban kitties.
