  1. Jimmy Keinhorst goes on loan to Widnes..

    Huge pat on the back for Ash Handley who has really grown in stature these last few weeks.
  2. TRL Helpdesk

    I am no fan of Sat-Nav but when I've been abroad, I've used this free app and it has been excellent. Never used it in the UK but maps are available. Just download the relevant map and then use offline. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.navfree.android.OSM.ALL
  3. Uninteresting Trivial Facts

    Scientology ?
  4. Will Leeds break SL attendance record?

    Already sold more than the HKR game attracted.
  5. Spend a penny

    In the Netherlands the 1 and 2 cent coins are long gone, maybe also in other European countries(?). In supermarkets where you buy by weight, the end price is rounded to the nearest €0.05. Some you win some you lose. Can't see why we don't adopt the same here.
  6. Reight.... who's been to Corsica...

    Did a two week walking holiday in Corsica in June 1999. Splendid place. Wasn't walking in the high mountains, just day walks from a base. First week in Calvi on the north coast. Nice beaches, good solid hills inland to walk in. Second week in Corte in the middle of the island. Lovely town, much more rustic and rugged. Some great walking, but again not on the very high peaks that form the backbone of the island. Lots of local cuisine of interest, the locals liked their hunting. I also proposed to Mrs HPR there so memories are very fond of the place. All very beautiful, will certainly return there one day.
  7. Rant thread

    Cyclists.... Not in general but ones with lights that can be seen in outer space. I know you need to be visible but having when I am walking down an unlit bridleway, I don't want to be blinded by something from a 90s style rave. I'm sure they wouldn't be legal on a car. Oh and with all your flashy kit you could at least invest in a small bell rather than shouting coming through from distance.
  8. I thought that it was the standing area only that would be ready for use? Agree that there is a hell of a lot to once the structure is up though.
  9. Happy Lancashire Day!!

    Can't believe this thread is 6 pages long and still in the RL section....

    Level access for those with restricted mobility and fully air conditioned, what's not to like.
  12. TRL travel help desk

    Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains to the south of Krakow well worth a visit.
  13. Rant thread

    Quite a lot of countries have a vignette scheme for motorways. Locals buy an annual pass and visitors shorter periods (day/week/month). Visited / drove in Austria / Czech Republic / Slovakia and Hungary this summer and they all have similar schemes.
  14. The TV Thread

    I'm pretty sure that the first time Concorde came to Leeds / Bradford it was an Air France one. On a later visit to LBA I was exceedingly lucky to have an Uncle who had a contact with shell who provided the fuel at the airport and we saw it in prime position from the fuel yard at the airport away from the hordes. I'll try and dig out the photos if I remember.
