I went searching through the archives of Proper Course to find something suitable for Throwback Thursday. After all, when you have been writing the same blog for 11 years, some of the earlier posts are positively ancient.
From March 2006, 10 years ago, I found Loaded the Woodcock, some instructions - with illustrations - about how to load a Snipe on a road trailer and what might go wrong, which I thought was somewhat amusing because I had made a very bad translation from the Italian original using what was then called Google Language Tools.
The original was from an Italian blog sNIPEOUT...
Much to my surprise I discovered that sNIPEOUT... is still going strong.
Even better, the author is clearly following this blog and has been reposting some of my RS Aero stories...
A quick check on the RS Aero Class page shows that there don't seem to be many RS Aeros in Italy yet.
Maybe these RS Aero stories on sNIPEOUT... will change that?
