a message from Morgan.....(after repeated threats from The Discordian Project)
I visited Jura, an Island some 27 miles long and 7 miles wide. It is the
island on which George Orwell wrote "1984", the KLF burnt 1,000,000 pounds
in a disused boathouse, has 5000 deer and 200 human inhabitants and a giant
whirlpool off the northernmost tip. There is no resident policeman and there
has been no rape, mugging or other serious crime in the past 200 years.
Anyhow, it was a wet trip and involved me getting soaked and having a
soaking wet sleeping bag and set of clothes for three days. Highlight was a
three hour night hike, taking in millions of deer, millions of stars
(amazing skys when there aren't any street-lights), five shooting stars, two
bats, one owl (i think... it was a bit dark) and one very bright unexplained
flash of light in the sky (not thunder... it was a point, not a sheet or
bolt and there was *no* accompanying noise of any sort... my best guess is a
large meteorite from the shower presumably passing over, but it sure spooked
me for a few minutes!!!)
Anyhow, I have signed the Jura Hotel guestbook as of 27.9.2000. I was first. Who's next?
Take it as a Discordian Project challenge. You can camp outside the hotel (I did this and cheekily signed
the guestbook anyway...) Have at ye!!!!

I made it to Jura for Christmas 2000 and New Year 2001
I found my way to the Boathouse where the KLF burnt a million quid. The boathouse is at Craighouse, you can see it on the right as you walk/cycle/drive/use pogostick up the road from the Ferry towards Jura House gardens.
I drank Jura whisky.
I saw deer, views, sea, sky.
I crossed Morgans name out of the Jura Hotel guest book.
I added my own name and enjoyed several peaceful days wandering around the island.
as if anyone gives a damn.........who's next then?
