I've nothing against cockroaches. The only guaranteed survivors of a nuclear holocaust. Not that I'm planning on setting off a thermonuclear device, whilst touring Scotland in a Citroen BX!!

Well I suppose I could fabricate a small yield device, between now and the 22nd of June. I can also do thermonuclear devices in various colours. A green mushroom cloud is truly something to behold!! :D

Are you not passing Dounreay on your jaunt, I believe they are looking to move some plutonium away this year as part of their decommissioning? Two BX's each containing just over half the critical mass - high speed head-on impact & voila! :wink: :oops:

Looks like I'm sticking with camping after all. Definitely sites with showers *at least* every other day please!

By "tablets playing up", I presume you don't mean connectivity issues with your iPad?!! :D
