    Well, I've finally made it back to Germany, only 24 hours later than I'd anticipated...

    I'm sure you're all fed up of RR's by now, but just a couple of points.

    The idea of people hiding behind an Internet persona seems to be a myth when it comes to a.m-b. This
    works to most people's advantage, and yes, it means that Shaun really is like that in real life ;~)

    Why people would pay four quid to go to Nantmawr is beyond me. And that's coming from someone with
    more jump and dh tendencies than everyone else. However, it was amusing to see the jump monkeys who
    were mostly crap.

    I've noticed that others have complained about the lack of riding, but who went round for the final
    loop? Wusses, the lot of you.

    A top day - hopefully, we'll get to do something similar in the summer at a top riding spot.
    With any luck, we can sort out some accomodation for those interested and have a proper session
    down the pub.

    quite astounding...

  2. Im all for having an a.m-b meet somewhere this summer. Accommodation is a good idea too,
    getting down there, riding, drinking, smoking and coming back home may be a bit too much to fit
    into one day.

    I was going to ask the same thing! I think their laws are a little more lenient about such things.
    Twist 'em up! (from a guy who finds enough to twist is usually too much)

    Hahaha, what a great picture. I saw the rizlas and looked at shaun's face again, thought he was
    skinning up with some grass there :D

    He was the lucky one. It took me four hours.

    Still, we had fun. Next time we'll make sure it's something that's more our style though.

    A bit tricky when you're faced with a three hour drive home...

    Mind you, I was asleep by the time we got to Oswestry. Got woken up by a frantic Adam who announced
    that he'd been round the last two roundabouts several times now, and that he needed me to navigate.

    Nice, feel like I'm missing out.

    Peace, Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind
    should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.

    It was just a standard rollie, nothing dodgy as far as my nose could make out.
