Too right - and my mate has 4000 of them to play with!!!

As to "cottaging" dare I show my ignorance and ask what is it???

The reason I invested in NVGs is that I managed to get them for less than £300 and as I was in the cave/mountain rescue I thought they may come in handy - should be quite useful on the RIB as well but being gen1 they do white out like hell if there are lights in the background!!!

Phil - cottaging - come on you........

.......can't be serious ? You know all those hours you spend driving from one National Trust carpark to another in the dead of night using your night vision goggles, staring at young couples banging away wishing you could join in ? Well that's cottaging or at least part of it dependig on how serious you are about the hobby. To take it a step further, you could be the one in the car allowing others (in their night vsion spec's) to join in. Are you with me now ?

p.s

N.T Carpark grid ref 14122354 is the best one I've ever visited

Is that like dogging but different??? Apparently Swansea is supposed to be the "in" place for dogging but still haven't managed to see anyone!!!

Beside which with all of Tony Blair's great new laws it is now illegal to do ANYTHING!!! Even married couples aren't allowed to shag in their cars these days!!!

It's similar to that well known French expression, 'Quel tit enorme'

Now I believe Cottaging is what goes on in public toilet between two male chaps!
Cottaging as in the old public toilet you get that look like little cottages!
So I believe the use of large shopping bags are used , one stands in it so if someone takes a peek under the door all you see is one pair of legs!!
