Should be ok

I've emptied my email box (I'm so popular) and asked JK to look at my account as I have no PM's (so unpopular). Please try my email again. G.

long drive!

MeMe, Phil 'Diehard' Davies has to drive to Germany today! As he couldn't be bothered to make the '7' hour trip for the weekend, maybe he's just stayed in bed today as it's a long way to Germany isn't it and we wouldn't want him getting in any traffic jams with all those nasty Merc's and BMW's now would we. Best he stays in the warmth and keeps dry so he can come to Wales next summer when the sun is shining, the sky is blue and the water is glassy.
It was great to meet the Jakeen's and Wavehumper who had made such a great effort to join us, travelling up from Southampton with Wave leaving Saturday morning for the journey up and the Jakeen's taking an overnighter!
That's dedication for you.

Further more.....

Not one of them complained about the cost of fuel, the cost of having to stop for breakfast or having to cope with conjested roads, road works and "weekend drivers". That said with one less "slow rib pulling, fuel guage watching, homemade sandwich eating Southern Woosse" to contend with I'm sure their journey was a breeze.

Neither did we hear DM complain about the worry of his "straps coming loose" or his "Engine dropping" nor even hear a whimper when he tasted the cheap and nasty tea bags Jono provided us with upon our arrival - now that really is dedication.

Oh well Ian, I suppose we may as well write Phil off for the December Cruise as already the long range forecast advises of a freshening breeze, busy roads and according to the AA,the Little Chef group are putting up the cost of a full English by 1p.

Should just say a big thanks to MeMe, Dave, John and Phil for allowing me to ride their ribs. Oops, sorry Phil (I'll be there whatever) Davies wasn't there. But thanks to the others anyway.

Character assassination

I have just returned home from an exhausting 650 mile drive from Hanover, during which incidentally I encountered not a single traffic jam, signed onto Ribnet only to be met with a veritable torrent of abuse from certain well known members of the NW Ribsters. To put this into perspective I thought it pertinent to point out the following:

No. of North West Ribster cruises attended by Philip Davies during the last six months : 3.
Costs incurred - 3 X Little Chef Olympic breakfast with cafetiere : 26.94
Total mileage: 2,100
Estimated fuel costs: 300.00
Vehicle Depreciation costs: Volvo V70 - 500.00
Range Rover 4.4V8 - let's not even go there.
Accommodation: At girlfriend's but cost me 3 x meals out: 60.00


No. of cruises outside North Wales attended by Ian and MeMe: 0, yes you read it correctly, ZERO.

Costs incurred:
Ian, Peugeot 405 diesel - fuel costs negligible, scrap handling charge 25.00.

MeMe, Golf Gti - estimated fuel costs 75.00, speeding ticket 60, loss of street cred incurred by driving a Golf Gti at the age of 37 - inestimable.

THAT's dedication for you

Mr Davies, I suggest until you know us better you refrain from making such rash statements. First of all, even though it may have sounded rough, the 405 was infact petrol and FYI it was taken away this morning for 'No Charge'.
Secondly, my cruising in a rib has included the North Sea in the Aberdeen and Stonehaven areas in NE Scotland. I have also cruised in the North Sea Oilfields off the Shetlands.
For six months in my younger days I cruised around Lighthouse Beach, Lagos in Nigeria EVERY weekend with far more exotic companions than you! And much cooler drinks than coffee and Baileys.
MeMe, I am sure, has cruising memories he can also share with you which will make Cardigan Bay and the Crouch seem very plain.

Arrange something instead of just following. I suggest you post a Cruise thread for the South East 2004 and see who from the NWR turns up. I'll be there for sure....

....just to prove a point!
