anto,
I have been washing a sailing dinghy down in the back garden today in the glorious sunshine and warm wind. ;D

However I can see from the weather radar that your prayers may be answered as all your rain is heading here. :(

I hope you get out soon in some sunshine.
Julian.

If you want to be happy learn to be alone without being lonely.
If you want to enjoy the world see it from the saddle of a bike.
If you want to experience beauty camp alone in a spectacular place.
If you want release your anxieties cease excuses and take actions.

Some weird weather going down... An hour ago, we just had our first rain in about three weeks. The past week-plus, we've had daytime highs of 30-32, with humidex readings of 40.  This is late July/early August weather at the end of Sept.  The daytime highs of the past week are about 3 higher than previous records (set all of 8 years ago!)

Things go back to "normal" tomorrow -- a cold front is going through, and Thursday shd be sunny with a high of about 18, breeze from the NW. sounds like a good day for a ride in the hills :)

Mr Trump reckons climate change is all a hoax .
weather is crazy ,mind you can't depend on Irish weather one minute it's raining next minute the sun's out ,
today on my walk i though it wise to take rain paints ;) half way up the river it lashed rain so i wipped out the pants had to take my boots off witch was a struggle  i managed tho, but the pants  were about 3 sizes to small had to wip out the swiss army knife and cut the elastic in the waste  ;D ;D.

i'm a top geek for sure it was about 4 years or more  since  i bought them i was couple stone lighter then .
yeah anyhoo i hate this feckin weather roll on the summer.
if i win the lottery i'm out of here.

anto.

<nods> It certainly is going all wiggly-woggly here, Anto.

On 19 September we already had snow at one of Oregon's mountain ski resorts...

Down in the Valley today, it has turned hot -- currently 29.4C/85F.

Best,

Dan.

anto.

Since Ireland I went to both the York and Mildenhall Rallies taking three days to cycle there for both. I camped on the way and while I was there but took the train home because of family events. Thats all the cycle camping I have done since I saw you.

I have twice been down to Devon visiting family taking three days each way but staying at Hostels. Also did a couple of short five day tours with Pauline starting and finishing at home but staying B&B.

We are doing another short five day tour in Wales next week. Again using B&Bs.

Like I said on that campsite at Cashel I think I am getting too old to both cycle and camp so I would prefer to just keep cycling.
