Drag the bar to about 80% and see if it will start from there.

Have just left Andy at the train station in Aberdeen - I can't believe how many swear words I uttered when we got lost in the centre of Aberdeen :oops: :oops: It is a shame that he couldn't stay longer but hopefully he'll be back next year.

It was a real pleasure having him here - we had a great time last night, beer for the boys and wine for me and a good old chat.

I'm guessing his train ticket turned up then!
Maybe we should organise him another bike ride! :wink:

And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Glad to hear he is still out there and alive! It is a fun thing to do going round and staying with everyone (even if we did cheat and use a car!)

I've just cycled from John o' Groats to Land's End so I know how hearty food and a comfy bed are essential at the end of a hard day's pedalling. If you ever venture this way (Cornwall) we will put you up in Porthtowan! :wink:
