I was busy refreshing the info page and wondering why it wasn't open until I saw your comment about the shop rich.

First weekend for me too :???:

Embarrassingly, poor money management issues meant a few small bank payments bounced today. At work over this weekend in London and using bike to commute about. So hopefully this coming week I may just be able to afford them and this (after the wife/bills/kids are taken care of :grin: ).

Watch this space. Really want the first sitting so I can be the first back (again :lol: ).

It's only type 2 fun if you think of it like that. I remember James Hayden mentioning he enjoys it all. Now I'm mentally adjusted and it's all type1. Just make sure we don't fail to prepare. Best image I have is of the scaratched bb200 during 2021. Up on a mountain in a storm. Taking shelter on the quiet side of it and having somethingg to eat then back out into (Alex I think) it. Was lovely :-bd and may God make em all safe for us.

Always remember that it's your mind rather than your body which will decide whether you make it round and sometimes, whether you do or don't will already be determined before you even set off.
