Re: "The Wall" 5.30am Saturday, 29/11/2014

I need a big ride to clear the head. I am more likely to leave earlier and do a trip to macs pass and back. (I have a lot of crap to clear out of my head!).

But I might feel " lazy" and join for this. Or I might have to work again. Who the hell knows. Don't wait for me.
