    ...and when your thirsty, can end in tears too ! Similar to filling the petrol engine with diesel.........and to be honest I think I'd rather do that !!!!

    Ken.
    What brilliant advice. Didn't give it a thought but have now located a proper wee bottle that SWMBO bought some years ago for use in a car if you're caught short. Before someone comments, it works for both sexes.
    SWMBO has also made sure that I have some instant rations too - just in case.
    Thanks Ken.

    Come on guys, surely all this talk about urinating in a bottle is simply just taking the piss (no pun intended).

    I would of thought you old boys would be keeping your colostomy bags installed for the entire road trip

    On second thoughts nearly the entire trip - maybe you could empty them in France on the way back through!

    I've found that a large diameter piece of tubing (note the word LARGE ) routed down the trouser leg and the outside of the boot comes in handy when travelling ! this can also be used in a tent but one should always try to remember to route it to the outside of the tent and not in to your mates sleeping bag !!

    another reminder

    Couldn't sleep - i knew there was something i had to remind you guys about -

    1. Meet for the ferry at 0730hrs on Friday.

    2. Try to fill up with juice in the UK, so we are all starting with a full tank.

    3. For all of you on tour, the ones with big beaks and large tanks (+Bryn) dont forget to pack that one piece of essential equipment - Davidoff Adventure
