SDA RD4 – Fort William

SDA RD4 – Fort William

Just when you thought Fort William couldn’t get more exciting, the SDA come along, tape in some lines that encouraged some harem-scarem antics and we had a Fort William that was much the same, yet different in feel due to these changes.

The way back to the future.

The way back to the future.

Around 15 years ago I met Gus. At the time I thought him verging on insane and without any of the humour that can occasionally bring. It was clear from the very first meeting that Gus had what I’d call a different view of the world to most people – not right, nor wrong, just different. Gus is a farmer. I would say not in the traditional sense, but given that farming has become a ruthless commercial beast controlled by […]
