Re: Posts disappeared or deleted

Graham, did you put your owm topic/post "What did the EU ever do for you" in there?
Because you then deleted it completely for reasons which seemed unclear.

Re: Tapatalk pop up

Just accept once but don't upload.
Ie. just close app store straight away again when it appears.
Site then behaves on an iphone just as on a laptop.
If you remove all cookies at any time then the procedure must be repeated.
Simple and works great.

Re: Dolgellau to Porthmadog - Route 8 or 82?

Agree with above post.the track down to Barmouth is one of the loveliest in UK IMHO. Pub on it too The George. Does food but never eaten so cant comment. The official coastal route around Harlech on the small inland roads is very strenuous and circuitous on a loaded bike. N from Harlech ( straight o...

Re: Disentis/Mustér to Ilanz: on- or off-road ?

Its been a while since I was around Ilanz. However the offroad option used to be really quite smooth and pleasant. The main road is incredibly busy in nice weather, almost non stop traffic. I would stay offroad as much as I could. All IMHO.

Re: Ash Trees

Ash trees are quite prominent in the Dales, I'm certainly not looking forward to losing them....I remember the devastation that Michael Fish's great storm and Dutch elm disease between them visited upon the south of England. Ash trees seem to survive well in relatively exposed locations in the Dale...

Re: Ash Trees

It is when you visit areas like Limousin in central France that you realise how small our own woodland areas are. Here, if a forest goes on for more than a mile it is considered large. Forests in Limousin can go on for tens of miles. And when you look around and think that almost all our island was...

Re: EU Ref...I Am Confused..Aren't You...

I have an allegory! (Revised with attempted gender balance) 28 men sat in a small boat on a rough sea. One was being a pain in the bum so the others decided to allow him to jump out. As it happened they were passing a beautiful island where food grew aplenty and the climate was perfect. Along the sh...

Re: LLC - Harlech

I would say you are correct. The section is very hilly and some of those hills are very steep indeed. Nearly all the height gained is lost again several times. The more inland main road to Harlech is not too busy though it is rather narrow and blind in places but provides the most direct route. Havi...

Re: Allen Keys

My old Mirrycle mirror uses a really unusual imperial size (5/64ths or something like that).
I always assumed it was to make nicking it difficul, which it undoubtedly does.
