Transcript of The Good Drs. Email.
1: A 15 hour drive is not a good idea with a trapped nerve in you
back (that's what is wrong with my back)...Well I thought better
and suffered horribly.
2: It is not a good idea EVER to camp on a dodgy
air-bed with one of its pegs missing so it goes partially down and
deflates by the morning light, which in a tent can be 7AM And with
a dodgy back
3: Remember NOT to leave the window flaps open on
your tent, so as your Nice clothes you spent the first whole night
fumbling in the dark to set out just nice and aerate for the morning
just gets wet by the Rain, as we did...
4: In Scotland EVERYWHERE there are MIDGES and they
are ****. It does not matter WHERE YOU go they are there and will
bite you...It does not matter what you do they'll get you I KNOW...they
are disgusting creatures... Sending you picture of 17 bites on my
Fact: Apparently if you go into a camping equipment
place and ask for an insect sheet they ask you where you are going
i.e. Brazil Africa Australia and Scotland.
If you are going to Brazil the insect sheets are
one size, normal hole size, and therefore has a set price
If you are going to Africa or Australia then the
insect sheets are medium to large hole sizes and cost less
However if you want a insect sheet for Scotland
then it is the most expensive and in a quite different price range...
And why is that?
That is because of the ****** MIDGES They are so
minute that the woven holes in the insect sheet need to be as tight
as a nats ****.... They are bad mothers
5: Bothie Don't EVER go to Scotland and seek shelter
in a Scottish Bothie.....All it is is a shed by the sea
