    You don't see much pushing at trail centres. It's a lost art and is the new 'core.

    The High 5 is mine, Colin. I was gutted about leaving it as it was brand new, only opened on Saturday. Did you take it with you? If so, any chance you can get it to someone in Embra as I'm down in a couple of weeks?

    Notlocal, I spotted you. I thought somone had warned Mountain Rescue we were going out and alerted the troops in readiness.

    Italspark, Cheers! That will be great.

    Stuart, I was siiting in the front. It's actually a Paramedic Response Unit which roams between Braemar and Aboyne, with just a paramedic on board, or as I call it "the icecream van". πŸ™‚ No patient in the back luckily, I was just standing by ready to respond. Did I not give the impression of being a coiled spring. πŸ˜†

    Jo, don't worry, I did speak to the local Bobby who's on the MRT in Ballater, just to warn him. πŸ˜‰

    … roams between Braemar and Aboyne, with just a paramedic on board

    Just in case there's a need for quick scraping up of motorbikers?

    Jo, I carry a shovel especially for the task. It's (A93) a fantastic road for bikers (motor variety), and on a busy weeked the chippy in Braemar usually has 20-30 bikes parked outside at dinner and tea time. I just hang around like a vulture. 😈

    Hal, somebody keeps making me work on Sundays. You don't know anywhere with Mon-Fri work for an ex paramedic do you. πŸ˜‰ Tryig to arrange a Glentress weekend SOON.

    Top tip, anyone venturing up Ballater way should contact the 9zerofreewheers. They are a super friendly bunch with an amazing knowledge of their trail network. I for one will be heading back up to pick their brains. Ballater is only a couple of hours drive from the Forth Road Bridge. Probably no furher than Laggan, but for lovers of the natural stuff, you need look no further. The Habitat bothy is great too.

    You know me Hal, up for anything. Wherever it is I feel a dram at the top coming on……seeing as how I'm working the bells. πŸ˜₯ and won't make the New Years Day outing*. You don't know anywhere that does a nice whisky do you? πŸ˜‰

    *Unless I wait for you all when I finish my shift. What time for 1st Jan?

    How about a STW New Year Whiskyfest?

    As some riders might just be under the weather the whisky run will be leaving at 10:00 on January the 1st, we are planning a run round the Coils O Muick and having a dram at the top, then weather permitting back to the village via the Green mile. There will be nowhere for hot chocolate, unless we can get Butcher Baz to fill his flasks he uses for BBQ'S.
