Bloody forks are bent too- I have an extra 14mm on the wheelbase :lol:

Poor thing.

I have decided to do all the 7 Stanes on the Klunker now- wish I had got more pics of it as evidence. So thats Glenners and Inners ticked off- where to next guys? Are there any others you can do as a double header?

Si

Glentrool should be easy with Kirroughtree. Ae and Mabie would be a long haul day but could be done.
