    Re: Cumbria cars damaged

    Towards the farm on a straighter section is a long gravelly layby and in drier conditions at least one field is opened for more parking.
    There is a bit more going on as they used to also park...

    They aren't supposed to obstruct the road here either, but no doubt the ones parking first on one side thought it was more or less OK.

    I find it surprising how farming seems to co-exist so close to volcanic features and in some places glaciers descending almost to the Sea.

    Re: Uptake of Drones by UK Farmers - a study

    I think that's a very fanciful claim considering the low payload they can carry, at least on UK farms.
    It's more of a passing fad which will eventually have a few niche applications.

    Re: Hitch wearing on slurry tanker help ?

    Often you can unbolt and replace or cut off and (professionally!) weld on another.
    If kept greased it should last as long as the machine.

    It can stop now, 75mm the past couple of days. :rolleyes:

    Re: General Election, and Brexit.

    It sounds like tactical voting and tactical removal of candidates will be widespread.
