The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

Mick's New Toy

She arrived yesterday, but the weather prevented the first pitching taking place until today.

So, in Ma-in-Law's back garden, Connie Competition (as she has been named) got her first airing, and I don't think he made too bad a job of pitching her, albeit it's going to take a bit more practice to get a really good pitch.

The photo show's Mick's mom making suitable appreciative noises, whilst Mick is inside demonstrating how much room there is internally for a person of his size.

Big thanks go to Jeff (Trentham Walker) for pointing out the bargain. Mick's wanted one of these for a very long time; now all he needs to do is plan some solo trips...
