    Good luck, I rode a similar amount in a similar way preparing for 2019 transcontinental. If it all goes to plan you'll end up feeling invincible!

    Do you pay expenses for travel from Edinburgh? From videos and photos, It looks like we ate lots of mince pies and attempts at home made bagels whilst listening to Justin Timberlake.

    It's definitely a DIY job. We've just worked through 12 and also had 3 replaced by professionals. Having seen how they did it I wish we had just done it all ourselves, it felt like the worst 5k we've spent renovating.

    I hadn't realised how easy it would be, but once you have the beads out you can bring the windows inside and can scrape them and sand them back. The external work is also straightforward if you have a ladder to get to them, or you might be able to paint them inside then put them together after.

    We would like to put a long shed in our front garden, about 4x1.5m. It's in a conservation area and we will need planning permission for it so I am thinking of avoiding anything too permanent looking... I had thought about laying a paving slab base, on sand etc. But have seen most people on here pour concrete. What's the collective forum advice?

    Yes, each revolution takes you between the large numbers at the top of the diagram, next to where it says rotations. Right now you are at 0.2.5 (full rotations. numbers on dial.dots between numbers on dial) so let's say you want aero press you need to get to 2.4.0 all the way to 3.0.0

    We had this, I was and still am suspicious of damp proofing. We got it done as at the time it was the blind leading the blind. Despite being suspicious it has removed any sign of damp on the walls. House is 150 years old and there is absolutely no sign of a damp proof layer in the building.
