Great image Dean, as always. If it makes you feel warmer, me and the missus camped last night in Dartmoor, minus 2 and snow! Very invigorating! Smile John

You will need to get some electric thermals if you insist on staying out all day in this weather mateWink The other sad old sod does not take much looking after, however you may need to come back soon ... there is only so much a man can take WinkTongueWink.

Another great Jay shot Dean
