Im sorry to say that palmy is a hole.............Sorry if i offended anyone but i lived there for 4 years for uni and it suked.

I can recommend good restaurants though, also where you can find yourself a ferrari 430 to look/steal. XD

and luckily for me cars and driving is more important then uni so it doesn't deter me :P

If you take Rhys up on this chance, be sure to have your life insurance up to date... Oh and make sure you haven't eaten in the last 6hours or else you might bring it up :lol:

Feilding has a track about 15 mins away from Palmy. Not sure if anything's on next weekend though.
Cheers,

I'd avoid the Saddle this weekend. Boys at work are planning to do a bit of roadworking there since the Gorge is SNAFU.
