    ...I'm off on tour tomorrow morning. It's my first tour so i am going to take it easy and spend time riding all over east anglia. I have a full touring camping load. I know B&B's are available but I dont have much cash, and I also am using this as a practice tour for bigger and better things to come. ...as well as losing a few more pounds I hope to gain a load of experience.

    Weather forcast for the weekend is 100% Cr%p...oh well...it wouldn't be a proper English tour if it wasn't I suppose.:ohmy:

    I think the load is a little heavier than I would like as well...but I am at a loss as to what to leave behind....so if anybody feels like following me up a few hills they'll be sure to pick up a few ditched bargains as I chuck stuff out on the way up cursing and huffing, cussing and puffing...:ohmy:!

    Ok...so...I'll post again in a couple of weeks if I survive:biggrin:

    If anybody is up that way and sees a big guy on a loaded bike with bright orange panniers...chances are that'll be me so say hello if you like!

    Adios amigos

    Are the two not mutually exclusive? :ohmy:

    Have fun! My first tour was from York to Happisburgh, so although I haven't ridden in East Anglia since, it has happy memories for me. Just remember, if you're going east, stop when you get to the edge!

    BTFB, when you get back you will have to rate all the advice you have been given over the last few weeks;)

    I hope you have a great time, and if you get really stuck my brother and my mother live in Brandon, near Thetford. Get to an internet cafe and pm me, they'll put you up I'm sure. Although having said that, my brother is a bit of a self-gratification artist:wacko:

    Keep us informed though, and have a great trip:biggrin:
