Don't be misled - he just can't spell - mieliepap/stywepap is made from ground maize meal - usually just off-white in colour, so not like sweetcorn being yellow. These are both the Afrikaans names but the Zulu name is phutu.....

The buffalo turd sausages are called boerewors (Afrikaans for farmers' sausage) - so you will never guess their country of origin[:D]

See what I can do GS, I've got to fill up with petrol so I can nip into a butchers shop in High Wycombe (they make a good one[:T])

Sidewinder, I'm working Thursday and picking Stu up on Friday after lunch heading down but thanks for the offer [:T]

Okay, I've just about got the directions now, torn them up, thrown them into the air and will travel the way they land - seems about right lol

As for tackle, it's a toss up between bringin my Carp/Pike gear or bringing my Pole and match/pleasure gear - I can't make my mind up so might bering it all

How far is the sea away? Do I need that stuff too?

I am aiming to arrive on Thursday lunchtime... after checking the weather forecast I will need to stop off at the local Morrisons for factor 20!

Could this be my first fish in I don't get washed away?

Bright, dry, sunny, warm ...

It's just not going to be the same, somehow.

Just been on the M1 and my van packed up.[:C]
Where the M1 joins the M18, doing nearly seventy, one judder then nothing.
Hazards on and glide onto the hard shoulder.
Turned the ignition off, then on again and the engine started up and has been fine since, I came home on normal roads and kept clear of the motorways.
Taking it to a garage, let them have look.
WHY NOW!!![:C]

Just as you get to the trees on top of the hill there is a track that go's down to the waters edge you can park and set up a tent. Its deeper water down there aswell, i had a nice bag of bream and skimmers out of there 2 years ago.

doesnt matter as long as we have room to set up the two party tents. When is the toilet arriving? I will be there sometime thursday so one of the tents will be set up by the time most of you will arrive.

It's a frightening thing to suddenly lose power on a motorway.

I had a gearbox fall apart doing 90 on the outside lane of the M42...better braking than any ceramic discs!
How I got to the sliproad without causing an accident still baffles me!
