Limeys All Juiced up

An interesting negative slant on Mongolia.

Come on guys get your (a….) or brains in gear. There is a lot more to the World than the USA.

We in the UK are more than up for it. We have sorted our team and I know that we are going. We know there are a lot of unknowns. It’s gonna be different its gonna be another World but it will be an adventure. There will be pain and joy but what the **** let’s not knock the whole thing down before even giving it a go. A couple of weeks in a yurt will be something to brag and bore on your return. A bit of altitude, so the locals manage AOK, why can’t we?

So why don’t you colonials show us what you think that you are made of!?

The UK team for 2015 – final placings.

Following up on Julian’s request … Bass Pro Shop shows the Power Pro Hi-Viz Yellow 200 lb test available through their online catalog. They show it as: Model:2110200500Y

This link should take you to the page (but maybe not):

The 200 lb test Hi-Viz is about halfway down the page. I use the green for fishing these days…good stuff.
