Glad to hear the op is done and you're on the road to recovery Pete! As for the video I've still got lots to edit from the Odyssey so there's more to come! Hope it's whetting your appetite for another trip to Scotland next year!

Hey Pete, if you are really bored I have some 80 odd vids taken from Mabel on my YouTube channel. I'll try to add to those with footage of the Scottish meet in Drymen, so that you can see what you're missing.

Seriously though, take it easy mate. No lifting … apart from the odd medicinal beer or dram.

Thumbs up

We waited 30 seconds or so last Sunday, just in case you turned up....
But you know how it is when breakfast is calling..... you thought we might care a little more but Eggs are Eggs

Get well soon Pete, I will have to organise another breakfast at the Trent Port, Gainsborough and Mablethorpe run next year.

World cup? No.
Cricket season? No.
F1 season? No.

Oh, I see...op! Right!

Speedy recovery mate. About Easter should do it
