hello outlaws!

Not here very much but wanted to say hi now we are a month away. Really looking forward to the race. My training so far has been three 1km swims, two and half long bikes, a lot of walking and quite a bit of running. And a hell of a lot of time on my turbo. Slightly alarming when I write it like that but it will do the job.

That's not a stupid question at all EP - I think lots of people will do that, myself included. It is just easier to think with all the stuff laid out in your room. You have to put your numbers on your bike and helmet, write your details on your number etc as well as packaging your bags.

Camping

For those that wish to camp with the rest of the Pirates, I suggest we head for the same area we were camped in last year (unless requested to camp elsewhere by OSB/Barley) - rough map below.

 I'll try and get there Friday afternoon to lay claim to the area!!

I fully expect to see that painted on the grass, to scale, when I turn up Friday.

Now I do like a challenge, and I do have lots of yellow road spray paint at the moment.........

Ive got a job lot of 'not so temporary' black and yellow powder paint left over from a few years ago, probably enough to colour our whole area.

Im not so sure OSB or the campsite will thank us though.

Weird isnt it, some unkown person painted box hill a few years ago, there was a rumour that the National Trust and some locals were not amused

OSB in their other incarnation (Pace Setters), nearly kicked the pirates out of the Vit 5 years ago as I got a little carried away painting on the course Friday night. 

They woke us all up on the campsite about 5am!

6ft high letters accross the top of the rutland ripple, everyones name up the small hill after Ketton, other bits and bobs

You could just about see some of the 'temporary' powder paint the following year.

Barlos ... if you see this, have you got the big yellow signs?  Do you want me to take them up on the Friday or do you have  enough room?
