    Hi John

    The CD arrived today :) . My PC will not recognise the CD (runs on Vista) but when I tried it on Alisons works laptop (runs on XP) it recognised the disc.

    Anyway I have had a quick scan and printed out a hard copy as I am of now of on a Sea cadet Bushcraft course for the weekend.

    Some nice ideas in the book from the quick scan I have given it so far and I like the clear drawings. Maybe there is a project or two for my cadets to undertake in it.

    I will send the cheque on Monday.

    Cheers

    George

    The waiting list is down to about a week for hard copy, and next to nothing for CD versions, so dont be shy of ordering...
