14 - waited for Leeds chaps to return, which they did in freezing conditions with TWO CASES of beer. each.
15 - me and Kaiser speed off to shops for wood, fuel, food, and more beer (also wanted a couple of instant barbecues but Sainsburys had recently rotated stock and the aisle was now full of de-icer, windscreen scrapers, hot water bottles and ear muffs - TSK.)
16 - back - fire now thouroughly lit, burgers and sauasages, beer, rolls, beer rolls and excellent fried onions. Ice on tents. Stars out and Jupiter (Gazz?) bared its 4 moons. Berluddy freezin' Hot Fire - Minis Ken and Panda at full bore.

21 - following Kaiser down silly duckboard ramp efforts, I fall off and hear that crunching sound in R shoulder
22 - curse trail centres
23 - curse trail centres again
24 - We ride down and all live happily ever after
25 - over a week later and I have just popped 2x Diclofenac painkillers for the shooder, which ain't broke, but throbs.
26 - curse trail centres again and look at full suss bike half prepped in corner of kitchen
As I say - no pics. However a question - has anyone here (apart from Kaiser
) found it necessary to fumble about with ladies' underwear when retrieving their shoes from a hostel/campsite drying room? No? Thought not
