Yeah ZZ they did have it easy on the luggage front but I was quite pleased on how well the fat handled the heavy load.

The boys were pretty chilled which did surprise me, cause there is no way I would have kipped in there on my lonesome. They did insist that I sleep squashed in-between them so as you can guess, I got 2 hours sleep at the most- going to go down again to see if there are more trails to be had, we stuck to the fire roads in the main but I think it could be a little treasure trove of muddy fun- You might be able to link up to glen troll in a few months if the cafe owner is right, will keep you posted.

The latest phrase I get from the wee man is (other than "fail") is "Are you INSANE!" with a lot of emphasis on the insane part. Hard not to laugh.

Looks like a great run Gaz, I might be tempted to try something similar in warmer weather
