Re: Aer Lingus and busses with kayaks?

I always print out a copy of their sports policy and if there is any question of the boat not getting on I stand in front of the attendant until a massive line forms behind me. I've never had to pay for a boat or paddle with them.

Re: Corsica

I think Ryanair also fly to Sardinia. Make sure that your allowed to bring your rental car to Corsica from either place. We found out when we were about to hand the car back that we were driving uninsured for 2 weeks. And be prepared to do alot of driving. I think we covered nearly 1800Km in 10 days...

Re: Boluisce land access issues - Part Deux

I started looking at the land reg maps today but I couldn't ID the folio and the path doesn't seem to be marked on the maps. If there's an easement it is most likely a private one and not a public one.

I'll do some more research in the next week.

Boluisce land access issues - Part Deux

Just to let anyone planning on running the Boluisce that the attached note was left on our car parked above the dam, opposite the laneway, on Saturday. It's unsigned which is unfortunate but i'm trying to find out who the owner might be. Please be uber respectful if anyone challenges you while using...
