    Wood gas stove.

    Love a woodgas burn. In fact any twig stove burning I find fully absorbing. Being an essential worker though I think my spare time will shrink as we peak through the outbreak:(

    Hammock with bug net recommendations for 6’5”

    Hiya, new site looks good! Looking for recommendations for a hammock with bug-net that will allow comfortable diagonal lay at my height, confused by some of the lengths given. Looking at dd xl but hear it can be tight and looks like it needs a tight hang for the net to work? Is the 3m length...

    Trip Report First hammock camp

    First time hammock camp last night (normally a bivi and basha). I survived !! Definitely more comfortable than laying on the ground but it will take a bit of getting used to, also it’s a bit more faff to set up I think, hopefully I’ll slicken it up with practice and fine tuning. Was a cracking...

    Hooped Bivi Bags....thoughts!

    A good buy there Barney, plenty of room and plenty breathable, the material is not a million miles from the Brit army bag so plenty tough too. I was wondering what you’d go for, looking at the snugpak the zip is on my wrong side and the material looks too “tenty”!! I think.... Looking forward to...

    OTT slingshot, wanting some hammock suspension bits

    Superb little ott slingshot made with engineering pvc which has double the tensile strength of hdpe, made by me to a high standard, 50mm gap, feels lovely in the hand, bands tied for left hand hold but can be reversed as it’s designed ambidextrous. I wanted to try cattys again but I am just...

    Hooped Bivi Bags....thoughts!

    Just a thought Barney....how about a sleeping bag with inbuilt mozzie net, like the Carinthia tropen or Brit army lightweight bag? I can vouch for the Brit army lightweight bag, I’ve used it in summer with just a mat and basha.

    Hooped Bivi Bags....thoughts!

    I’ve had two Dutch army hooped bivis, both fecsa ones and both failed on the mozzie net zips....however one of them was an xl version and had sufficient room to stuff a large pack down the foot end and create a tunnel effect head to toe which was brilliant.....if you can find a Carinthia made xl...

    Day Out Upsetting the locals

    Great taste! Yew trees are superb, strong, great evergreen canopy for weather protection, always some dead limbs low down for the stove.
