Better your eyes than what the black ones hurt.

No, that's the new portable baptism system. Don't turn your back to them.

I will try and sneak in a quick skiing trip to Italy before I come over.

I will see if I can get a couple of copies of our local Jehovas Witnesses manuals for Pluric before I come.

I love retirement


Happy now Desert Dave ???
Even artificial turf! Living large man, living large.

Do you trailer the S10 or follow the Rover?

As I will be there a while, the green stuff makes life more comfortable on the gravel floor. It's just a cheap porous nylon sheet, everyone here uses it.

The tent is a brand new Australian Oztent that leaked like a friggin sieve when we first got it. Had to glue up the seams. Hope the owner of Oztent is on this forum so he knows what a POS his £1000 tent is (no reply to my E-mails !). Fixed now though. We bought it to take to Africa with the Land Rover in 2014.

We trailer the bike around so the bike has only about 8k miles on it so far, but they have been quality heavy duty ones. I've wrecked two bash plates so far.

Last month I went out mountain road scratching with some sports bikes in Northern Spain and used half of my TCK80 in 2 days.
I have to say, the sports bike guys were very surprised at the Yams performance and I am not a fast road rider by a long way.

Living the dream...

I am envious. I want to be like you when, or should I say if I get to retire.
