    What to pay for standing hardwoods, s West

    calculate your costs for felling and extraction ( plus clear up etc ) then deduct that from roadside price , this will then give you a starting figure for negotiating the price you can / will pay .........if both parties are in agreement !!! do not forget felling licence , bat / wildlife survey etc ...and all other bureaucratic bumpf !!

    Devon - first impressions

    You have only been here 5 days , hardly any one has had the opportunity to dislike you yet !! 😁 and yes the roads can be awful ....what is 20-25 miles as the crow flies can take at least an hour to drive ! I hope you are well practiced in reversing ..

    Making the news today....

    Perhaps some Guardian readers are confusing Robinsons and Robertsons and assuming that he is racist ( which some how has become the greatest crime ever )......https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=robinsons+golliwog&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=Oua488NlhoXG9M%3A%2C1V7HjIU5GG6OhM%2C_&usg=AFrqEzfR7uaAk9vhEB7JozSn_Sm2dxuI4A&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwisn9-4xczcAhXHZ1AKHfD2BfEQ9QEwCXoECAYQFg#imgrc=V56UjszBl5-ZTM:

    Milling western red cedar

    no apology required , I hope you do not think I am being pedantic, but if you are buying ,milling and selling timber then it would be in your own best interests to know what species you are dealing with 🙂

    camping in a non campsite

    The road on the seafront at Meadfoot beach torquay has suitable laybys , have seen vans overnight there before , right next to road though , but not really busy at night , East facing so if weather is good you could wake up to a sunrise over the sea looking towards Thatcher Rock ... also some other roads very nearby may be suitable , one spot overlooking Hopes Nose is parked on all night by fishermen ..... nearest toilets are at Meadfoot Beach though ... Another nice spot about 1hours drive away is South Hallsands beach ... again great spot but no facilities at all , also east facing for sunrise ...

    I do not think Vesp would pass the IQ section on wildlife and geography !!!! Tigers are not found in Africa !! ( except in zoos )
