"The Hills have Eyes"
on: June 19, 2022, 07:14:19 AM
One of the routes I do, takes me to some very remote areas accross the moors / Hills in Lancashire.
At the foot of one of these Hills is a small parking area..
The "Natives" leave a "Welcome message" embedded into one of the tourist information signs..
Something tells me these holes arent made by a .177 Air Rifle!

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills"

Clearly you're overreacting!
Just a pair of lost bullets, surely.

Of course, such lost bullets might sometimes end up into a tourist. It'd only be fate ;-)

And here I thought shooting at signs was strictly an American hobby.
Silly Harley rider......Don't you know that Tigers eat hogs?

Which is not a problem.
Until they have guns, that is.

Its thwe sort of remote spot that you would rather not break down at..
Its a nice ride but when the skies are grey and the wind is blowing.. It does make one think od "Deliverance"

Lol

......and someone squealing like pig?

But I think Deliverance is rather tame compared to Southern Comfort (the film not the drink!)
