       No, not greedy, simply necessary. Mad Nigel in my caving club is from 
Portland - he'd have got you more of "Dr Nobel's Linctus for excessively 
tight caves." <basil>Boom Boom!</basil>

       My maps are in a box in the parent's cellar. My German is even more 
marginal than my Russian <G>.

       Camping at Pappenheim probably doesn't count.

       Didn't visit Eichstatt. Just wanted to do some walking and rock 
hounding. Pick up an Archy. Usual minor holiday ambitions - after all I 
hadn't had a booked holiday since 1991, and all I got from that was a piece 
of indupitible monadnockite.

       I'd completely forgotten about them. Very pleasent walking back 
alongside the river in the evening.
