    I'm in the middle of a very good book at the moment.
    Ranulph Fiennes 'Mad, Bad and Dangerous to know'
    What a great book so far.....:tongue:
    His achievements are stupendous......mind boggling really.

    Arctic and Antarctica expeditions in amazingly low temperatures.

    So having seen the forthcoming forecast for the weekend I decided not to go on the Turbo trainer tonight and save my energy for tomorrow as I'm going out on my Trek, wrapped up in suitable clothing and I'm going to cycle and enjoy it! Sod the rain, wind and whatever else mother nature wants to throw at me....Im going out!!!!!:biggrin:

    :blush:I don't get that. Is this something to do with frostbite and fingers?

    he cut his own fingers and toes off when they were dead from frostbite. xx( he got sick of waiting for the doctor to do it, so he did it with his own tools :sad:

    I heard that he cut a good finger off in his haste.

    But once again the doctor was busy, so he sowed it back on himself

    A couple of years ago there was a dude in Hyde Park towing a tyre for a polar expedition. He really really annoyed the horse riders by doing it in the bridal path along the Serpentine Road, which quite amused me.
