Yes, I have found some of them a very tight fit but I have never had to remove my pack to get through one.

They're a natural way of keeping long distance walks free from lardarses.

Now thats what I thought, I watched a man who must have been twenty stone get stuck in a kissing gate, the EU should change the law and standardise them all, just like bannanas, It is the oversized people that would bennifit a change in the law.

Yes, to avoid confusion across national bounderies bananas must be yellow and cucumbers must be green.
