  5. There is sufficient wet stuff , but something in excess of 15 deg would be needed also.
  6. Iced Tea is like cold chips . yuk ! But not a tea drinker generally as by and large its past its use by date . In India, Tea, ( Chai ) is fresh and flavoursome , unlike anything i have yet to experience in UK.
  7. Far from being an experienced boater, however over the course of 3 hires on the Oxford/L&L / and the GU, i have to say i have never encountered a volunteer lockie. I do recall perhaps 2 C&RT employees, but in each case they took a very hands off approach. Were i to come across a Vlokkie on my next hire , is it customary to dictate your preferences before entering a lock should their help be offered? I can imagine some situations where i might appreciate help - have yet to scale a flight, but generally i prefer my own company.

  9. Now you have me confused. If you are going clockwise from Middlewich surely you are going up at the Cheshire locks ( heartbreak hill )
  10. I have also experienced such North American temperature change . Landed at JFK New York around mid day, lower 30's deg C . Drove up to Berkshire hills in Western Mass, that night the guage dropped to minus 10 deg C and all the water pipes froze. Within a day or so we got to Ski. Great memories .

  13. To those who answered my question , thank you. As a postscript , i care very much for my grandchildren and hope to introduce them to the land of my birth before i am unable to do so, hopefully including a narrow boat trip. Sanctimonious comments dont sit overly well.
  14. The impediments to ever be able to again travel seem to be increasing by the day . New strains of the virus pop up almost daily, prompting the question, are we ever to be over it. Even though my country is on the UK green list , there is as yet no timetable to again allow travel by the NZ government , our border remaining shut tight for the foreseeable future. Were travel possible , the staycation holiday for UK residents has blossomed, with hire companies seemingly booked out for the next 2 years . Bucket list dreams fast being poured down the drain ?
