What is the world coming too? I am used to eating my lunch in the old traditional built wooden shelters.
This looks like it came from MFI and was assembled out of a pack with a prefabricated floor

Jesus! Colin. You don't need petrol in your bike; you could harness the farts from your onions.

Glad you are enjoying yourself.

Always have a handful of those lovely red onions everyday for lunch Roger, great with a ham and cheese sandwich.

Some afternoons the bike is a petrol/methane hybrid, renewable energy but not sure if its classed as green or brown energy though
