Fascinating stuff, and I'm envious of your chance and in awe of your balls to do this.

That is true, but the sand mostly rubbed all the dirt off when it was napping.

Besides, both it and I have to be in the same place before I can wash it anyway. I think it might be close to home but I sure as hell am not

Anyway, here's a nice clean shot for you to work with

Thanks man, I am sooo disappointed it won't be in Mongolia with you
but I give you kudos for supporting the local economy.

I will try and put something together over the next week or so
current gigs are kicking my butt.

On another note, I will send you a soiree update over the weekend.
pm me the email

peace!

EDIT - and lube that freaking chain for god's sakes

Hee hee - just be thankful this hasn't turned into Drfakoo's thread (about the JVO kit), where lots of hirsute people seemed immune to embarrassment and posted all sorts of ghastly photos of their bad-hair days!
