Wretched dodgy ankle making life a pain.  I can ride one day and it's OK, but next day it can send up acute jabs on stairs, or maybe not; or maybe ache all the time, or maybe not; or I can start a ride and get spikes of pain after 50+ k.  Naproxen helps but attacks my gut even with [ome,panta]prazole. The only cure remedy is rest, but being diabetic with coronary problems that is not exactly optimal. Bugger.

Can I ask which modelnframkie? Specs, price, where you got it?

Sorry yes its the Lenovo TB3-730F 2G+16G bought from Amazon UK.  Don't know how much because 1-click buying from Amazon is a bit like that  :-\
Yes it has a card slot and there is another model the 730X which also accepts a micro-SIM card for 4G connectivity.
I'll admit I haven't downloaded the manual yet so it may be me missing something in the setup which is preventing WiFi N connectivity. G works fine for my purposes, but even my tired 4-year-old Nexus can do WiFi N so I probably am missing a trick.  If not, I'd call that a serious drawback for a potential buyer.

Nick, your route sheet does not match your gpx at Langrick. Should turn right there according to the rout sheet but your gpx turns right further on. I assume the route sheet matches the official; the official gpx matches your route sheet.

Argh — shortest route and all that.  And a visit to New York would be nice at this time of year!  It's no biggie and will be fixed in the next set, which may be later today when we find out about the diversions — actually, I've updated them now anyway, possible updates to come later today for the diversions.

I am pleased you're checking the route to that level — a bit of peer-review is a Good Thing — thanks Simon  :thumbsup:  Let me know if you spot anything else.

Not only New York, but a Bubble Car museum also!  :thumbsup:  https://goo.gl/maps/FcHUTFVdqKQ2

I expect that will be of no use in the dark for us 16:00'ers  :facepalm:

Just watching it to get to the end now, but I hope it improves.

Exactly this. I've invested too much time in it to walk out so close to the end, but I'm watching it more out of habit than because I want to. There were some proper cringingly bad moments in last night's episode.

The Greyjoys are supposed to be comedy characters, right? You certainly can't take them seriously as military leaders.

Reading the FAQ the controls have towels. So you could save some weight on the bike or drop bag. But i'll probably bring a microfiber one just in case.

The writing and direction has taken a serious turn for the worse. I'm gonna struggle to justify spending time on it this season.
The war council at Daeneris new home was some of the worst acting I've seen in a long time.

Yes, I'm fairly unimpressed so far.

One minor observation: I copied the tracks onto my Etrex 20, then loaded each track to check they were all there. I noticed that when viewed on the map, St Ives is labelled 'Spalding'. Easy enough to fix by editing the waypoint.

Hmm, that's interesting — I've checked all my routes via St Ives — northbound, southbound, individual stage tracks as well as my "long" tracks — and ALL of them are correct and label St Ives as Spalding.

Do you know which track is labelled contains this waypoint?

Those route sheets are great, thanks Wilkyboy!  I was discussing the official route sheet with Robert Bialek recently and he was having difficulty folding them to be easily readable, as they extend too wide to work within the usual route sheet holders, or even elastic banded onto an arm (my preferred method for dealing with route sheets). 

I'm not riding but I had to agree with him.  I would have done something very similar myself -  well, you've seen my route sheets - so I applaud the effort you've taken.  The wilkyboy alternatives can be read easily from the saddle.

I've printed the complete set out for Robert.  If he gets lost, you'll never hear the end of it.

Thanks, Mike.  Fingers crossed Robert makes it round okay  :)
