over him (he really wasn't happy - his two mates in the car at the other side thought it was hysterical though), I've been waiting for the chance to splash through the water again. So, this year, when Piglet posted up the tide times on the 100% Biker website and I saw that the one on Friday was 20.09,1 thought 'woohoo, splashy time!'. Then, of course, summat happened and I wasn't able to get down until Saturday morning... curses, foiled again.
If it's actually possible, it looked like there were even more people at this year's bash than there were last year - there were certainly tents taking up space that wasn't being used last year and the outside bar in the marquee was much busier than
