    When I was out in the snow at the beginning of February, I was walking across a field were some kids had been sledging, and making my way down to the river where no one goes. I was successfully tracking a fox that had gone to drink at a shallow pool just off the river, and as I turned around to head back up the slope there was a clear print of an electric guitar (fender shaped) in the snow. No footprints around it, but clearly a guitar print. It was possible to walk up the silt banks of the river without leaving footprints... but why :confused:

    Seemed like a lot of trouble to go to in the middle of nowhere where it had a very small chance of being seen.

    The "bored with the internet" one has a frightening ring of truth about it. Much like the realisation of why I suffer from right-hand RSI.:(

    Thanks for that!

    Cheers
