To paraphrase the Life of Brian and 'what have the Romans ever done for us?'
1) Helped me no end with searchable expertise prior to taking the DSC1
2) Been a real mine of helpful advice, freely given
3) Provided practical, specific info of things you dont find out in DSC1 eg 'how to stay dry', or 'what to take' when stalking
4) Confused the hell out of me regarding best calibre, rifle manufacturer, trousers (sorry those are clearly Harkila) etc, etc
5) Set me wondering when, or if ever, I'll go over to the 'dark side'
6) Made me question why intelligent people would put fruit of any description in perfectly good whisky
7) Given me a healthy respect and admiration for good forum moderators
8) Given me a place to maintain my interest when deskbound on a crap Monday at work!
CanI take the opportunity to give the Mods a thumbs up for a fantastic job of maintaining this site and all those who contribute for their wisdom, humour and now and again the odd rant.
May the festive season pass painlessly and health, wealth and happiness to all at SD for 2015.
