Um, not quite. It did prod it and poke it for a while.

.... a bit more advice... don't try and retrieve a bike from an elephant with less than 3 people. It ain't gunna happen.

The bike fared better than me btw, but the bruising's gone now.

.... and even more advice. They won't sell you an elephant to put on your BBQ, no matter how much you offer.

Thanks from your friendly ADV Mod.
ok heres some on topic advice
if you freeball in jeans with a hard steel fly for multiple days on an adventure ride you will end up with a nasty callous on the head of your night tool
if you want special time with mummy when you get home, its best to put a bandaid on your tool whilst riding

You made me cry and made my tummy hurt.

I've heard that in extreme cold, frost bite can be a problem and produce blisters.

Oh dear, I realised I've been laughing at the miss-fortune of the male appendage. That's not the done thing is it?

There's some advice there somewhere.

No, I think you are alright Miss Jane. Philth was talking about his head, not sure how a zip would put callouses on his head, but anyway.

Oh phew, that's OK then
Oh poor fella, in all that luggage we are supposed to carry, I'm sure we can find some nice cream to ease his poor head. I'd need advice on which cream to use though.

Advice: don't travel light, take everything you think you could possibly need.

Dencorub or tiger balm are supposed to be soothing.

Thumb Troy's four rules for packing...

1. No mater how much space you have available... you will always find more "stuff" that you "need" to take, than you have space.

2. If you halve the amount of space from the start... you will still end up with more "stuff" than you "need" (will use).

3. No matter how much stuff you end up taking, there will always be someone (probably on a forum somewhere) who can do it twice as well with less stuff, in half the time.

4. Having got out there and finding that you lack some essential item that you "need" (it's probably in the half of the "stuff" you left at home*), now is the time to rely upon resourcefulness and ingenuity... TWO things that you should ALWAYS have with you.




* This is a conundrum... as often - in the instance where the traveller in question engages upon multiple trips/adventures - leaving another (previously unutilized) item at home, in favour of the thing you "were in need of last time", will undoubtedly result in the situation where the item you now left at home is required and the newly recruited piece of equipment is superfluous... This falls under Murphy's Law; paragraph 4, clause VI... and is also knows as "you can never plan for everything".

Again lateral thinking and ingenuity are the best tools with which to be equipped in such instances.

Either that,or push your SPOT tracker emergency button, and have a beer while waiting for the cavalry to come and get you... in true ADVRider fashion.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

Do you wear thongs in the shower , you might catch a bad rash.
