It's maybe just a Purcell thing - we had the same in this area last year. Likewise, decided it was better to put up all the protection than risk not doing it. Heard a few stories of tyres being chewed, something about the salt off the roads I think :?

Cheers Fi, Sarah is trying to reach your dizzy heights I think :lol: I'm not sure the porcupine thing isn't some kind of urban legend but I didn't want to risk finding out the hard way :lol: Looking forward to seeing you guys in September :wink:
