  1. Drove from San Francisco to San Diego twice, couldn't recommend it highly enough, fantastic.
  2. Please don't swing by the neck, use a priest
  3. No flack as we've all been there. The priest is the best route as killing by braking the neck is much more difficult. An old keeper showed me numerous times, he could do it one handed without any obvious effort but it takes time to perfect
