Re: SAS Expert Training

Apparently, finding the limit point means driving as far away from the bend as possible... :) sounds like standard AD intro, with some common sense evasion tactics, wrapped together to sell at a premium to the rich and paranoid... good business model... I have a brazilian client who is always consci...

Re: New Members.

I am sure that there are probably standard % figures around for those who join / those who initiate / those who respond / etc. but doesn't seem all that unusual... with this forum we have some areas locked to those not members, so that in itself gives a reason for some to join - to read those areas ...

Re: Second thoughts on offsiding

Yes, fully agree. There's a piece of road I use most days: https://goo.gl/maps/krX4QRqDPsA2 Parking area on left delineated by paint. Even when empty, drivers seem determined (as the one ahead in the photo) to not use the good surface, instead they head out right over the decaying join and closer t...
