I emailed Sue offering to pay for the tea & cake.  She said she'd get me next time.


The bunkhouse is excellent , but next time I'll take a bread knife & corkscrew / bottle opener. These essentials were missing ! Luckily we had Kim & her trusty Swiss Army knife.

A toolbox full of plumbing equipment wouldn't be a bad idea, either...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

My bold.
You travel without either?
It was the one item that I made sure that was always in my (wholly unrelated to cycling) tool kit when travelling to work in

I couldn't find my own SAK before I left.   My Topeak Alien multitool does have a bottle opener though.  When camping I usually do take a proper corkscrew.   It seemed outrageous though, the place is a bloody pubbe! Even Travelodges give you a bottle opener.

Seems the YACF winter week end weather fairy has been kind to us once again.

Whilst fishing around in the car today I discovered a chrome-coloured plastic bar-end plug which looks dangerously like one of Canardly's.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.
