After an unplanned shoulder / barbed-wire fence interface on yesterday's slushy / snowy / muddy ride, this is probably the closest I'll ever get to Shredding the Gnar.....

The question is, will it buff out?

    You could sew a badge over said altercation; perhaps the crudites could make suitable suggestions?

    You lie!

    You failed to use enough chloroform or follow Gazlars guide correctly!
    Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    You got lucky in 2 ways;

    1. You managed to keep your face from getting mangled

    2. The fence was there at all, there was quite a drop to the left of the trail IIRC :P

    I vote for leaving it as is and make up cool stories about fighting off mountain lions and bears to anyone who asks!

    :D:D

    The wire got through as well - 3 or 4 mountain lion scratches on the shoulder and a couple of bruises on the arm - but at least my face is still in one piece. Hmmm, perhaps it would've been an improvement.......

    Tomorrow in the Peaks - night time?
    I'm going to blow the bank on a new build ( within reason ) NOW DONE!!

    Car's in for some warranty work today & tomorrow but as long as it's fixed in time then yes, sounds good.

    Let me know where & when and I'll confirm when the car's fixed.

    Yea, just like it - except I wasn't commando (and I almost cried like a baby)..
