    Helped my wife's parents with some roofing and was handed a Primus 1020 in return. Normally I refuse any payment from family....but hey, a Primus 1020

    My latest buy was to replace a tarp I used years ago and really preferred tarp to tent (even though I just bought a Lavvu :)) There nothing quite so relaxing as hearing the rain hit the tarp. Factor in the other uses as well and it's a truly a multi function bit of kit.

    From ebay and a guy down in Cornwall. Paul if you're a member here, cheers mate.:You_Rock_

    The BASHA or British Army Standard Hotel Accommodation (Thanks to Basha Dweller for that one) in DPM. It was listed as used but to be honest apart from a couple of likely mold spots it's brand new. The tag has it YoM as 2005 looks like it has years of service left in it.

    To replace my Leatherman folder I traded for a stove, I got a Byrd Meadowlark 2. Haven't field tested it yet, but first impressions are that this is serious bang for the buck...but the future will tell

    A boonie hat from Endicotts. Kevin graciously made me a neck protector for it as the ones with protectors didn't come in my size, so he made one up and stitched a velcro strip into the back of the hat for me at no charge. Second one is a used, but in good condition, Swiss M32 aluminium canteen and cup. it's more of a curio than something I plan to use as it only holds 500ml.

    This is one of my favorite threads for reasons of pure curiosity. I realized a while back though that while it's also one of our logest running threads, the OP are no longer active. Anybody know whatever happened to Nova & Pinky? They haven't been on the forum in 4 years.

    A load of plasters, sterile dressings, low adherent gauze, burn gel and micropore to replenish my FAK after spending time with Elliot at the Moot ;). And a small Needle/Thread bullet case, because it's nicer than the plastic thing I currently tote around

    Webley Vmx .177 air rifle mainly for the boys ( said to wife ) oldest trapped his finger in the barrel lever on holiday camp on a organised activity so I thought they needed teaching how to use one correctly and over time

    A couple of Kupilka 55 bowls originally bought to go in our bimble bag as my wife isn't fond of eating out of my ToC mess tins. Well that was the idea but as soon as my wife saw them she decided they would be better served as cereal or soup bowls. So consequently they have yet to, and most likely won't, see the great outdoors, just the inside of the kitchen cupboard.

    A new Olympus OM-D E-M10 camera. I wanted a smaller setup to replace my old DLSR setup, some of which is now in the hands of a member on here.

    A Svord Peasant Mini, 20 metres of leather cord/thong and 2 Hungarian M49 Zeltbahn shelters, the latter of which the missus turned her nose up at when she saw them for real instead of on a screen.
