    A Few Hours Out - Finally

    Cheers Bron, will check out the local garden centre ASAP. Agree that it certainly looks like the damage has well and truly been done but I'm sure the ground will recover over time once cleared away. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

    A Few Hours Out - Finally

    Yeah the hobo works well, £4 pounds biscuit tin from pound land, about 2 hours with a dremel and a drill lol. Did put it on my gas BBQ as the paint looked all crap, most of it off now though. Still need to find some ss or alu mesh though for the bottom as it'll help with ash and air for fire...

Suppose i could tie some paracord to the existing prussiks, should work well as long as i get the length right. Also could get my mate to splice the two lines together at each...

    DD XL Tarp Modification

    That's what I was thinking, get another 4.6m of paracord and tie it with sliding knot each side. Was gonna use one of my old fishing knots (not sure of name but it invokes making a loop then running line around main line and through loop several times and pulling tight, the more times the better...
