social skills..

<t>Clearly, I need to finalise living arrangements (esp as I was looking at place in Netherbury yesterday - so not to far from the Bridport crowd).<br/> <br/> I guess I'd better also buy some anti-perspirant and take out a mortgage for the first round (Beers are still cheap up north...) <br/> <br/> ...

I'm from Weymouth originally, so I'm aiming to live that way. <br/> <br/> I'm looking for a club, or group of paddlers, to go paddling with on a fairly regular basis, who are into the same sort of p...
