Re: Photobucket / Flickr

Instead of showing us your pictures, you could just describe them eloquently, thus brushing up on your poetic, descriptive language and we could all use our imaginations.

Re: Hi Everyone

An afternoons walk with impressive views goes up the hill from Balquidder churchyard to a wee loch near the top of the hill, called Lochan Nan Eireanan. Camping up there would disturb no-one and attract no attention, also no-one worries about you fishing for brown trout away up in the high hill loch...

Re: Throwin' a sicky

If you don't like the wind and rain (more like gales and horizontal high-velocity sleet) you could always try pot-holing. Cavers don't have to put up with weather, just eldritch creatures wot time forgot in the eternal darkness of the abyss. Enjoy...

Re: Photobucket / Flickr

If someone does filch a photo and use it to win a competition, you'd still have yours on computer and could thus prove you had taken it (if you right-click on them they show up "properties" such as when taken, etc.). Then you can publicly name and shame them for the feeble photo-thieving n...

Re: Monty Hall's Great Escape

At last, the wee vampires are making themselves felt ~ that sorts out the wheat from the chaff, or even the porridge oats from the chavvs. Good idea taking to the sea to avoid them. Now if he had harpooned the basking shark, that would have made good television! Anyone else read Gavin Maxwell's book...

Re: Beavers

Do you mean that American Beavers might be fat, over-eating wastefull types who, instead of carefully coppicing a willow, would devour the whole thing, possibly with a large coke and extra fries?

Re: Hiya

Have you considered the benefits of amputation? You could get one of those springy prosthetic limbs attached. But then you'd go round in circles- alright for traversing hills but no good for up and down or crossing moors. You'd best get both legs amputated. Marvin Bore got that done and he climbed E...

Re: Beavers

I was very much against the reintroduction of beavers as they carry a disease called Giardia (a sort of intestinal parasite which makes you very ill, possibly even fatally). This Giardia infects the whole river system so is almost impossible to get rid off once there. If the animals were quarantined...

Re: Monty Hall's Great Escape

He's on again tonight; can't wait to see if he has to eat his own legs or at least is reduced to washing dishes in the hotel to make ends meet. If it all took place last year, didn't we have warm weather in April which woke the midgies, then it simply lashed down for the rest of the year? I was tryi...

Re: Mallaig parking

Ha! I laugh in the face of your Welsh heather and wild roses! They wouldn't have got far chucking that at the Zulus at the Battle of Rourke's Drift.

Re: QUO problems

Indeed, whilst climbing Sgurr Alasdair I had a tape playing on the walkman featuring Quo, the Stones and Pink Floyd. I found that Gimme Shelter, Rockin' All Over The World and Echoes were particularly suited to the situation. Now whenever I hear that sonar ping of Echoes I have a poignant flashback ...

Re: the dirty 30

Looks like it would be more enjoyable by boat - canoe maybe? Or weave yourself a coracle from willows.

Re: Van conversion

That reminds me of a time a mate and I went to the Edinburgh festival. We had no digs so dossed in the car in a city-centre street. We woke, horrifically hungover, to see a huge greyhound defecating right in front of the car. Nearly threw up over the car upholstery...
