    Morning. At work with heads down I suspect P. Trying to get everything done outside at my place prior to expected storms. May cry off tonight's xc meet up.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    I was going to ask the same thing.

    Got woken early again which didn't help, took train into town, plenty of space although tube was a bit busier. Have to get back early as Mrs. 666 is doing the pickup run for Stropteen and her mate later on and I need to be home for when the hounds get delivered back to us. Junior hound tried to dig up a ground level wasps nest yesterday and got stung a couple of times for his troubles but seems to be fine.

    Onwards to more caffeine.

  • Good day out yesterday, off again today so pottering about the place.
    Everyone on the marathon training group is biatching about a late start, I'm just glad I'll have time to get a good poo out :p

    It will push it out for you somewhere round the course 😂

    My race starts at 04:00 on Saturday, I think I will be doing a trail dump

    Saw a big marquee going up near Capel Curig today, I guess that's your poo tent?

    2nd Snowdonia attempt, 2nd failure. Fantastic views today:


    Got to Llanberis early again, all kit present and correct but cloud was very low so thought that would be a stupid idea. Cloud never lifted all day either.
    Spotted a smaller mountain cloud free so attempted to scale it following the "easy route" but there was no path, the grass/scree was slippery and the cloud descended so made a speedy exit down, partly on my @rse because that seemed safer.

    Meet up at Hicks lodge near Ashby for the late evening opening with mates or my little bro. I tend to do off road from my house as much as possible. Local bike shop used to do s few races every yr but that's dropped off with covid and everything else going on in the world.
