    Moot 2020 Is it or is it not

    Are the Lakes open from Wednesday or not?

    I think the final word on this should go to Coniston Mountain Rescue. Hello All, Hopefully you’re all managing to stay safe and healthy through the Covid-19 pandemic. We know that many of you will be desperate to get back on the fells and trails, and to get your Lake District “fix”. The...

    Regrets - The things you gave away or sold but wish you hadn't

    I think I was Running a Bushnell 6500 Elite 4.5-30x50. It was in .308 which will drive a 155gr bullet accurately to 1000 yards if you can get the muzzle velocity beyond 2900fps. With a 26” barrel that takes a lot of ooomph. So part of my reason to change was the lure of a 32” barrel. Those...

    Regrets - The things you gave away or sold but wish you hadn't

    This was my Remington 700 PSS. I rebuilt this rifle and took it out of the HS Precision stock that the US Army Snipers use and into the AICS that puts it in a format that the British Forces use. I added the enormous T12 moderator. This thing was a tack driver. I was placed in the McQueens...

    Has the bubble burst?

    Well I’m going to leave you villagers to gather the torches and pitchforks. The negative waves are not appealing either guys. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Has the bubble burst?

    Personally, looking at my 1500 odd posts, many will be going back a few years. Rather than being put off, I’m not very active because I probably don’t feel the need for support that I did in the early years of my membership. I have a group of Bushcraft friends now and stay in touch directly. I...

    Has the bubble burst?

    Personality clash maybe Nomad but not worth getting worked up over. Honestly if you were sat around the campfire you would have way more in common than not. A wise man once told me that just because someone writes to me doesn’t mean I have to respond. It’s made my life more peaceful. I’ve long...

    Has the bubble burst?

    It’s likely that the compasses only come later in their teaching. First comes care of maps, map symbols, 4 gig and 6 fig grids, orienting a map, features on a map, judging distance and movement speed, using handrails, catching and collecting features. You have to bare in mind we are now...

    Has the bubble burst?

    I’m there on Sunday doing an NNAS Tutor Course! They say that “Those that Can’t” (anymore because they are too fat and old) “teach” Actually the quality of my adventures has massively improved as I’ve got older. Many of my friends of old have spread to the winds and new friends made have given...

    Much of the places of my youth are. Even the pubs I drank in as a young man are flats. Old, old old Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
