Like Benbeoch, where i feel that everyone should have to dodge the security, with Crock I feel that everyone should have to crawl up drainage ditches between the forestry. You have no idea of the fun you've been missing

It doesn't seem that long ago, but in fact was July 2001 pre-digital, so it was scanned in. Don't think husband's knee would let him do that now.
