Re: Scottish National trail advice please?

That is the issue with doing a very long distance backpacking route, personal hygiene and laundry, especially if you are using public transport to get back home. Nonsense. One of the great joys of Highland trips is getting back on the train after a few days and watching the reaction of the well-scr...

Re: Motoring Taxes - Under Discussion Again

Worth also remembering that you currently pay about 10-12p a mile in fuel duty anyway. The switch to EVs mean this will be hard to recoup via grid pricing so a sensible per-mile charge would actually be the fairest replacement. Assuming some level of congestion basis to the charging, rural folk coul...

Re: Should I have intervened?

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

....during the war. Merkland Street Station on the Glasgow subway is now known as Partick (so Mr Google tells me) :D Correct! As I understand it, the platform area is still discernible as a wider part of tunnel on a straight stretch, but I obviously haven't ventured down to check recently. My googl...

Re: Confession Time

You live in Fiji and have never been near the sea? :D If you have never been near a mountain or the sea in your life you can't be from Fiji. :lol: :lol: From a pedant's point of view, CB didn't purport actually to be living in Fiji. So, first question is does one have to live in and/or have been bo...

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

No, sorry.

A certain type of person returns more frequently....and the occasional person a little worse for wear I presume.

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Clearly more cycling fans on here that I thought, so maybe not the hardest. Still trying to get the right balance on clues.

Let's say that Sgurr wins the Souvenir Henri Desgranges and you get 1pt for a Cat. 4 climb. Fair? :wink:

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Don't see any major issues with the last clue. It was clear SPV wasn't unique but the response was. Anyway...
