Wish I could be there, I

Wish I could be there, I love that area of the UK. Some of my folks came from Llanhilledd, north of Cardiff. I find the hill country there very refreshing, especially now that many of the mining scars are healing. Always wanted to tour Bath as well. Some fascinating sights there, and a lot of sheep too!

lol...not sure if the folks

lol...not sure if the folks in UK use the term "beard" to mean the wife or girlfriend of a gay man used as a disguise of his homosexuality...I'm sure those beards wouldn't be quite as welcome.

You've done an amazing job with this Al, and I can only hope the guys that get the opportunity to get to the UK version of the retreat get to experience the amazing community of guys that they seem to attract.
