It's a pretty distant memory now but, yes, I have done it with a
Heuch asa described. Mine, it was with the early days of the London
Reel Club or the Clans in Fetter Lane days. But they used to Heuch
quite often in those days anyway! Well you had to lose the head of
steam somehow! The tempo was half as fast again as it is today - try
some of the ancient tapes at standard speed. I suppose we were all
that much fitter/harder as we walked everywhere, there being very few
cars around.
In illustration and following that memory I also remember
challenging a couple called Robinson who had a car to go to dances in
and I said to the effect that they were coddled as I bet they even had a
HEATER in their car and probably a RADIO too!! Takes you back
........! :)
