  1. Hi Mate, just been thinking that one of the 1st times i noticed it was at the castle shoot in that deep snow you had on that day, on a more +tve note, i went out today and did a pretty good brisk walk with the dog of appx 1.5 miles and had no problems what so ever, just need to build it up over the coming weeks and can get back in the gym again.
  2. Just a quick update, its over a year ago now i had the heart attack, since then i have had no further chest pains, or problems, However, after undertaking Cardio Re Hab in my local hospital it was noticed that i couldn't do various exercises due to pain in my hip, thigh and calf muscles, when questioned about this i explained to the nurse that i had been having these problems for about 10 years , and my Doctor had informed me that it was just a muscle problem , something to do with the Sacro iliac part of my back, and had recommended physio which i had attended. Too cut a long story short, the nurse recommended i see the doctor again, and mention that it was worsening and that she thought it may be something called intermittent claudification, as a result of this after under going various tests they discovered i had no discernable pulse in my right leg, after ultrasound and MRI scans it was revealed that i had a major issue at the point where blood goes down to the legs, and on the 4th of April i am off to hospital to have 2 stents fitted in the arteries in my legs to allow proper circulation, I am hoping it works ok as the alternatives include major arterial by pass, apparently from my neck down to my leg, or worst case scenario , i could be losing toes, feet , or even my legs. I am hoping it all works well so that i can get out and about as i have had to give up all shooting , fishing etc as i just cant walk to far without all the muscles cramping up on me .
  3. I had my old Touareg done with limo tint to stop people looking in the back when out shooting , fishing, I had it done professionally by a company in Derby (£170) , apart from the security aspect it also made the interior more comfortable in hot weather, and even though it was dark Limo you could still see through it pretty easily
  4. The new project arrives today, been looking to restore a bike again for the past few years and due to one thing or another i have put it on hold, going to do a sympathetic restoration, not to mad, but it s the 1st proper Suzuki i have ever owned, has any one else had these, is there any thing i need to watch out for, all the research on the net seems to say they are pretty bullet proof apart from the alternator / rectifier. any help greatly appreciated. Andy
  5. Seems i didn't put a small piece of punctuation in the right area, a comma after i should inform my insurance, because i had already to started looking after myself prior to the problem occurring
  6. I remember you saying it would have been bad enough coming down in your Rangey.
  7. I had the Touareg 2.5 R5 Which i absolutely loved, i did an awful lot of miles in it, almost 65,000 in 18 months always had it well serviced by trained technicians , it had all the toys including air suspension, auto, tiptronic, sports gearbox, extremely comfortable and pretty amazing off road, would i buy another - not a 2.5 - but apparently the 3.0 v6 is the best option, but can be expensive if it all goes pear shaped, i spent a fortune on mine in the time i had it, but i absolutely loved it.
  8. 1st thing i asked to see when i bought the BMW 730d to replace the blown up Touareg was how the indicators worked, the salesman didn't have a clue, Classic.
  9. Looking back on it now it seems that i missed the previous 7-9 minor episodes , just putting it down to a bad cold that i had as the symptoms only appeared after a coughing fit, it now feels so surreal, and almost as if it never happened, if it wasn't for all the tablets i will have to take everyday, and the holes and bruising in my arm where they put the tube in for the stents and intravenous drip i would have said it was a dream. In myself I feel fine, but have been warned its not over for quite a while yet , and am not totally out of danger, and i must take care in what i do for the next 12 months as next time i may not be so lucky, 4 weeks off work (self employed ) no driving for 4 weeks, must inform my insurance of this apparently, change my lifestyle, more exercise, healthier diet, quit smoking, already started these and long may it continue, considering changing my job to one that is totally stress free and doesn't involve driving 1000 mile a week
  10. Hi , Harrycatcat1 , I still have nightmares about that walk to the last drive on your shoot, still remember how deep the snow / snow drifts were that day and most of all coming down that very steep hill in my old jag (sideways) due to treacherous road conditions, its funny , i only went past the other week and told my misses about it as we went past.
  11. If It wasn't for these people i could possibly have been dead on Sunday, God bless them, and all the amazing hospital doctors, nurses, consultants etc Derby Royal Infirmary glad you were all there when i needed you. Totally unexpected heart attack, which if it wasn't for the speed of the paramedics and the great skills and expertise of ALL NHS Staff i probably wouldn't be upright, above ground and breathing today. God bless all of them, These people are absolutely amazing, and don't get the respect that they deserve.
  12. I have just measured the barrel and its 25 inches, the LOP is 14 1/2 inches
