Well I've reached a milestone on here and managed to reach 3000 posts As is the custom on the forum I thought I'd do a competetion to celebrate this acheivement. The winner will have a choice of 2 books, first is Food For free book by Richard Mabey, this is the pocket edition by Collins. The other book that the winner could choose is the classic SAS Survival Handbook by John 'Lofty' Wiseman and this one is the large paperback format. The question folks have to guess is this. I'm off tomorrow on the Journeyman course so what folks have to do is guess is how much weight in kilograms do you think I'm going to loose? The winner will be the closest person without going over the actual weight. I won't say what I weigh but let's just say I'm pretty well padded Good luck with your guesses Please note this competion is now over and is CLOSED so please, no more entries.

My guess is going to be 8kg. also have a great time, the weather up here is changeable to say the least, and say hello to Keith for me he's a friend who's going. Congratulations on the milestone dude!
