Mrs Relayer and I play lawn bowls. This keeps me in Mrs Relayer's good books, the social loop, and at the same time a chance to do some tour-training.
My tour-training involves supping beer in the clubhouse and also by the bowling green when the sun is shining. This will get me fitter for supping beer on my inaugural 'credit card tour' and the alfresco supping is preparation for any future progression to a wild camping tour.
Preparation for wild camping tour entails looking into developing a method for packing beer on tour Thorn Forum style, perhaps :-
a trailer option on the RST incorporating the following
refrigeration powered by a Tout Terrain Plug 2,
an inbuilt profile design multiple bottle/tinnie rack,
n'lock security modified to dislocate the fridge doorhandle,
OR, simply tote a wee barrel with the uber Rennkompressor to pump it out - after a couple of pints you won't be able to tell if the pump's unstable or not
pedelec motor on the trailer to ease toting of above kit.
As our strine friends would say "Ripio cobber!!".
So, while Mrs Relayer is chatting with her friends I am quietly training and planning.
