Re: Any feedback about Hilltrek Kintail Shirt?

I used a lot of ventile in the 80's . I had a contact in the factory and was getting samples, test pieces and rejects for free. This wasn't Hilltreck's stuff. It didn't work well in the UK climate. When damp it goes board stiff and scratchy. Trousers and shirts were particularly uncomfortable. Think...

Re: Alex Salmond Charged with Attempted Rape

This is an active criminal case. Reporting restrictions are stronger in Scots Law than they are in England. Take a bit of care until after the final verdict.

mjr » 24 Jan 2019, 12:24pm Can you check if there is only one <trk> tag in the file, please? Searching with a text editor should suffice. There you go. I have skipped the bit in the middle, which is just a stream of <trkpnt>. Only one <trk> that I can see. Screenshot 1.jpg Screenshot 2.jpg

Re: Arran, Islay, Jura, Colonsay

About Oronsay. The causeway is just a gravel track, which is passible for about an hour or more either side of low water. It varies from day to day. You have a choice of either one hour or about eight hours on the island. There are no public facilities on Oronsay but it is a magical place. When we v...

Re: calling Brucey.. SA touring potential

About your APB; it’s hard to beat a Moulton for quality of touring ride. I had an APB which I regret parting with. The SA 7 speed Sprinter hub was never very good. I currently run a Tern Node which I fitted with a Sturmey CS-RF3 3 speed/8 speed combo gear and I reckon that that would have been prett...

Re: Rest and Be Thankful

I have been over all the ground on your desired route in the last three or four years, but not all on the same trip. My suggested route involves using some A roads. If you are OK with the traffic on the A83 between Tarbert and Lochgilphead, then the A85 from Dalmally to Tyndrum and Crianlarich to th...
