The Lawless North & Beyond.

#1
Thats it. I've had enough of the smog filled, traffic bulging and overcrowded south east. I'm packing up and heading for colder climes; steering my way through the Lawless North, Buckfastshire and onwards to the Northern Isles.

Am I selling out? Will I find myself an outcast marooned in a never ending episode of Lost? Will I be cast into a giant wickerman and burned on some pagan festival?

What is to become of me?

Some valid points Mr D.

But venture north is to move rather than holiday ... no sneaking back south under the cover of darkness. We are buying a house up in Shetland!

K good for you enjoy the few days summer every year and I am sure the buckie boys will get you in their gang soon. And remember to claim everything you can so those terrible southerners can have a good moan at you :)

Take trees. They are scared of them.

K13 one of the most important things you will have to get used to so you might as well start practicing now is supporting any football team who are playing against England and generally moaning about how bad England are and wondering how they ever qualify whilst poor old Scotland are always in a harder group and robbed of results by the referees.

Just about every programe filmed there seems to be full of southerners! Bet it'll be like being back south of the Watford gap still enjoy the northen lights when they reappear

Thoughtful of the builder to run the gutters across the windows at eye level.

Well spotted, although not quite at eye level! The house is an old school house and that's the way they fixed the guttering back in the 1800's. The guttering has been replaced with PVC and still follows the same line. My first job will be to change it although that will mean more down pipes.

Of course, England had an easy group
England
Algeria - DRAW
Slovenia - ?
Yanks - DRAW

So easy that Ingerlund and planning the next stage of the competition - NOT. :twisted:

Is it true that the FA are not sending Terry home early for his rebellious comments as they would all be on the same plane anyway? :twisted:

We will be in before the end of the year ... visitors more than welcome next summer, we have plenty of room!

The house-warming will begin on arrival and is scheduled to end sometime before next move!

I take it you will be buying a 4x4 and a boat?

I plan to do the same thing next year actually but not quite as far as the Shetlands, we're heading to the badlands of the Lake District.

London is cramping my style and I want somewhere to shoot stuff without the law hassling me. :D

Steady on, there isn't that many taxi drivers to go around. They might count as a rare breed by next year.

Already have the 4x4 up there ... the boat is planned. Mizz K13 has the chance of a full time job at the hospital which should leave me free to get on with serious business ... dog walking, fishing, shooting, diving and layabouting.

I could do you a nice deal on Aluminium Gutter & Downpipe. :D
