OK, I'm in if there's space.
I may have to ration the wine this time or nobody will be listening.
You're only interesting when you're full of wine.

And the most popular wine this Christmas? "I don't like brussel sprouts".
I love Christmas crackers

I'll be bringing the bike on a bike trailer for the weekend. Silly question- what tyre pressures would you recommend on the trailer 30ish?

The Bunkhouse have asked for confirmation of numbers. The rate of £15pppn is only valid if we have 15 or more.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Those that are yet to confirm, let me know. If we get less than 15, those that do attend might end up making up the shortfall - either that or we will have to cancel the event.

Numbers at the moment are:
Me
Paul L.
Deadgrass
Luke & friend
Minter
MT Pockets
Dinkel acker
Steve M
Chrischunsi
I understand that appyarry has had to back out following a chainsaw accident (hope it sounds worse than it actually is and you get well soon Phil)
There are others that I think are coming but not confirmed:
Lardmarc
Laurence
Derrick
Those that I would like to attend:
All of you.

Minter has offered his time to put us through the same training as he did in the army which will include basics like the right way to pick a bike up, crossing logs, crossing water, how to negotiate steep inclines (including how to get off them when it all goes wrong)
This should be a great weekend and I don't want us to fail at the last hurdle.
Thanks

Steve

I'm gutted I cannot make this now. The thumb is healing however because of the damage it will take a while until it is better so I dare not do anything strenuous with it. At least it is still attached.
Sorry I cannot make it.
