  1. A very lucky dog, glad it's OK. This happened to a friend of ours dog, they were on a day trip to the Isle of Wight, their dog was off the lead, very obedient, but ran too close to the edge, slipped and fell. Sadly the dog died. I have always been super cautious with our dogs near cliff edges. H
  2. A fantastic idea. I'm volunteering Fieldsports Britain to set this up!! (Although I know they already offer membership and shares). Cheers Hayden
  3. Really good to see Charlie stand up for us all. The problem with the 'facts' the three come out with is that everyone takes them as gospel. Avery saying that he was a scientist and Charlie isn't so he has no opinion, was just awful. So, they get Driven Grouse Shooting banned, and hen harrier numbers don't improve, ground nesting bird numbers decrease, what happens next? Hayden
  4. Good work, Dan! Hope you enjoy it. Fingers crossed for you for the eBay purchase! Hayden
  5. No problem. Good luck and let us know what you decide! I have had a go on the direct drive trainers, and they are really good, but as you say, just really expensive! It's impressive how Zwift adjusts the resistance when going up/down hill, and I think to get the most out of it, that's what you need. Am lead to believe that they give accurate power data too, which of course, helps with training, compared to the good old HR monitor (As I have). Hayden
  6. I don't use Zwift, but use a turbo regularly (A couple of times a week), I use the British Cycling set training sessions: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/knowledge/training-plans/supporting-documents/article/izn20140529-Indoor-Training-Sessions-0 Have set my turbo up in my shed and run through the workout. I have several friends and family who use Zwift, but without the full smart trainer package, subscription, TV etc, I don't think you get the full experience, and I couldn't justify the expense of the full set up, and get on well with the set training sessions anyway. The trainer I have is just standard one from decathon. Hope this helps. Cheers Hayden
  7. Completely agree. But as said, I did complete the survey, but I did question whether I should actually complete it, maybe we are all too honest for our own good. Hayden
  8. Not sure that statistic of 10% is all that bad. I imagine there are a lot of members who do not 'control pests'. I umm'd and ahhh'd whether to complete the survey or not, as I very rarely control pests so should it apply to me or not. In the end I did complete the survey, but as I say, it's not something I routinely do. Hayden
  9. I mostly have my Swiss Army knife on me when I'm not at work, was given to me for my 14th birthday, I think. It's especially handy when my daughter has fallen over (She's 4) and say to her that whatever hurts, I'm happy to chop off. She soon stops crying! Hayden
  10. As they are offering a fuel car with private fuel included, The BIK of £5-6k will be on top of the car BIK, so you need to ask yourself, would you spend more on fuel than the tax on the additional £5-6k BIK? If you were to pay for your own private fuel (via the fuel card) then there would be no BIK on the fuel card. Cheers Hayden
  11. I too, have a cocker, she's 11 now and is going a bit deaf, but has been a brilliant dog. Around the house, very chilled and great with the kids (3 under, 5) and up until a year or so ago outside was in hunt mode all the time, so could be quite hard to reign in, but that's mostly due to me. In her youth she was a brilliant beating dog, working well with other dogs, and fearless in cover. I've always said that I wouldn't get another one, but the fact of the matter is, I will. They are a good size, a great dog around the house, great with kids, and my next dog I will invest the time/money into training to get the dog I want out in the field. Cheers Hayden
  12. I thought mine had been looked after, even checked with the previous owner about the fuel pump, as it's a known fault, he'd told me it was done, and it was my own fault for not checking. I should have purchased it, then taken it straight to my trusted garage to check, but I didn't, and 4 months later, paid the ultimate price! Lesson learned the hard way. Mine had only done 107k miles, but as said previously, I was unable to do the work needed/know the right people to get it back on the road cost effectively. I think the oil pump issue was the 2007 and 2008 cars. Ah, the snow on Friday Simonm, living just outside of Basingstoke (And working in Basingstoke) we had fun.. My XC90 worked well, but I'm pleased I didn't get stuck in the traffic! But you're right, they are everything anyone would ever need in a 4x4, assuming you look after them/have a good one! Mine had AT tyres, and worked really well. Cheers Hayden
  13. Completely agree. Whoever thought it was a good idea, that to do almost anything, you'd need to lift the body off, must have had a screw lose!! Coupled with not great reliability, no wonder why they are so expensive to buy in the first place! As you say, a great drive and everything else, but the repair bills could bring most men to tears.. Cheers Hayden
