    Finaly, after several years of putting this 'to the bottom of the list' everything fell into place this weekend. Ive not scared myself (or grossed myself out) as much as i did here in a long time but it was well worth it. This is problably in the top 10 places ive ever been!

    Tucker an Urban Junkie were legends like normal and apart from a small freak out at the pigeons, a slight deflation and some tidal woes (again!) everything went smoothly. Even had a cup of tea afterwards! :thumb
