  1. Are you sure it wasn’t I racing pigeon. I’ve sat fishing on a lake and had to land like ducks in the middle….take a drink, cool off and fly off like it was totally normal !!! Me and the chap I was with were dumbfounded !! I guess it’s how they cope with long water crossings but could be wrong
  2. No but I’ve had the thin fleece for a while now and I love it, although the mesh arm pits make it a bit drafty in the cold, which can be kind of counter productive !!
  3. I think the reason for the arches is that they’d store the cattle in them which would warm the dwelling above , or so I was told the other day at a very similar building !

    To be honest I’d say you’ll be better off having them both done at the same time as you’ll only be off for one period . I had my first 8 years before the other one went…..lean times let me tell you .
  5. What’s the preferred wood ? I’m guessing a sappy pine but anything else work ?
  6. No removals …..? Really ? Are you collecting seeds or climbing for sport ?
  7. Might explain why mine started slipping in less than 10 months !

  8. I’d take it to where you got it MOT’d last year as you’re not telling me all that corrosion happened in 12 months !! [emoji6] Where abouts are you ? You can get a half chassis for £1k in 3mm, floor pans are £80 each I think, some judicious welding from a decent welder and you could get her back on track . A lot of the stuff on the list are easy fixed . I’d say keep it. It’ll still be worth a chunk of money
  9. Lovely colour . Those TD5’s go like stink with a remap and some modifications don’t they

    I’m not sure this is correct. The consultant I saw didn’t do key hole so therefore not an option . I guess at bigger practices and hospitals one may have greater options but this also may incur a further wait .
  12. I recently saw a thread on the new Rope Runner Pro which I think talked about it’s efficiency on drt. I’ll be jiggered if I can find it. Could someone please copy the link or any relevant info to the above please ? Many thanks [emoji1317]
  13. I’ve just bought the new Andrew’s Cervino wood XP as I was after a lightweight protective climbing boot. Not the comfiest boot I have to say. On spikes they kill and too long in a fork they’re uncomfortable. I also don’t find the sole as grippy as other boots and the tread is so aggressive it shreds bark on some trees. I personally wouldn’t get another pair. Admittedly they’re still breaking in but the above problems are irrelevant of their newness . I also bought a pair of Dreyer Tango Extremes which for ground work and spiking all day are so comfortable. And the tread is super grippy. A bit bulky though for technical climbing for my liking .

    Don’t have it under local anaesthetic when they offer you the choice. I had my second one under local and I could feel them cutting me !!! Had to be numbed two more times, by which time my steely resolve had melted and I wanted to run out…..so they had to sedate me !! Not a great experience . If you have the option , go keyhole but you’re often not given the choice. The problem is the longer you leave it the more it might tear. I nearly fainted in a customers toilet mine got so bad !! Both times though (had both sides go ) I was back climbing steadily after 2 months. Nothing can prepare you for the colour and size of your gonads post op [emoji23][emoji15]. You’ll be ok mate, you seem a tough type
  15. My friend and I were just talking about this last week. We both had the TM when it first came out but now he has gone onto the Evolution. He said the buckles are woeful and you need the fingers of an 8 year old girl to undo them !! He also reckons it’s 2.5 kg heavier which if accurate , seems a heck of a lot. Overall it would seem that for him, their was not one thing he preferred over the original one.
