Thursday, October 16, 2008 Weekend in Scotland 2008 teamed up with a few ne’er-do-wells from NTSR, and jumps-specialist Sammy Brownlee, in a Tango & Cash organised trip to Glentress, 10 – 12 October 2008.

A weekend of fantastic weather and great biking, all was going well until Ian decided on Saturday afternoon that he wasn’t getting enough attention; so he chucked himself over a jump, over the bars, and directly onto his head – reconstruction later showed it as an 8 foot vertical drop.

Smashed helmet, bashed-up head, general cuts and bruises, and it was clear that we were heading for A&E to get him checked out properly, such were the strange noises and gibberish emanating from the normally lucid Ian.

So began the most tedious 30-mile journey we had ever embarked upon, as Ian repeated the same rubbish over... and over... and over... and over again.

Clearly still totally out of it when we arrived at Borders General Hospital, after another hour or so it seemed that Ian had started to talk sense again until, under questioning from the doctor about the date, he thought it was approaching October 2003!
Sammy shows us what it's all about, just before his minor altercation with a rather large and obstinate tree!

Excellent weekend. A distant memory now.

Thanks to the Tango and the Cash for booking stuff and taking their vehicles!

I suspect we'd all sit at home and watch telly of they didn't organise us.

Thanks for the note, PJ. In terms of the next one, it looks like all our mates can make it this time, so I don't think we need you. Hahahahaaa
