    Finaly after about 10 years of searching every second hand bookshop I've ever come across I've managed to replace my Rodger Philips mushroom book.
    Not a hardback this time but that realy doesn't matter.
    I'm realy realy happy:joyful:

    My bookshop hardback has a West Sussex County Library sticker just on the inside page with the date stamps of lends. I thought it was probably a stolen version, but there’s a page ripped out. The page with the Liberty Cap magic mushroom :D

    I've got quite a few books that used to belong to libraries.

    At first, I bought them direct from the library in the town where I lived; there was a rule that any book that had not been lent out for a certain period of time was withdrawn, stamped as such on the page with the date stamps, and sold at the annual book sale.

    Since then, I've bought quite a few from second-hand sellers on the Intarwebs; usually there is a stamp either on a page near the front or the back, or across the edges of the book.

    It was the only decent reference pic back then I suppose, no internet or pics, though they’re hardly difficult to ident.

    As you can see, I’ve been in the lab creating my own giant mushrooms. :)

    Boreal Ninja climbing shoes, size 9 sweet jesus there tight! So glad I did not go a half size down from my street size as some think you should, but they do make me feel I could get grip on fresh air itself :D

    Bought a Swedish army M59 shirt and a DC4 stone. The shirt appears to be hard-wearing.

    Great boots!
    Thank you for the link.
    They remind me of the leather boots which were a part of the farmers daily dress.

    Out of topic: would you have a link to the 2017 movie Okänd Soldat?
    Been searching fruitlessly since release.

    A new petzl headtorch. I didn't intend to buy it but it looked so neat and has a much better spec than the one I've got which is years old. Had to be done.

    If you mean the 2017 film "Tuntematon sotilas" directed by Aku Louhimies, I think I have a copy of the DVD... I'll dig it out.

    Picked up a north face tempest gortex jacket at the local charity shop for £3.50! It's a steal!
    Needs a wash and iron to reset the waterproofing but it's otherwise in excellent as new condition.
