I prefer to wear mine as a wristband when I'm drying out my sweaty face.

I'm doing some work on my mother's house in Crook and ordered some stuff to get delivered on Amazon, I checked the tracking this morning and coming from the facility in Carlisle!
I thought this was a fluke but checked a delivery from last week and that was from Carlisle as well!

Imagine driving a 150 mile round trip for some sandpaper and a scraper!

It wouldn't be that bad Tongue I'm guessing they'll do all of Weardale aswell be more fun doing places like Stanhope etc having a nice drive in the countryside than going round a city all day. Makes sense to tag Crook on the end of the run. Well as long as they get a petrol allowance anyway otherwise it'd be a bit crap money wise.

I know I'd take it any day over somewhere like Meadowwell or Scotswood.

Good point, although my mother had an Amazon order on the same day last week, I just checked and hers came from the Newcastle facility!

When I was in University in Swansea, I worked for Asda as a delivery driver, we used to deliver as far away as Aberystwyth from the Swansea store. I think our upper limit was 70 miles from the store. It was a much, much better job then when I graduated and transferred to the store in the Galleries after, which the furthest I got from Washy was Town End Farm, and Birtley!
