    Stora Le, Sweden, September 2010

    The payment is only needed if using the designated camp spots. It goes to help pay for the fire wood, empty bins and general conservation costs. I would buy it whether i use the shelters or not. Bear in mind that no fires are allowed anywhere other than these spots during the summer months.

    pathfinder alcohol stove

    Looks interesting. It may benefit from a little pre heating with a few drops of alcohol in a tray beneath it. Think i may add one to the collection. I ran a side by side test on my titanium evernew vs the trangia and the trangia won. Didn't ever use the evernew again but will have to try...

    My birthday presents

    I would have thought the idea was NOT to leave it visible. Not if you want it to be found.

    DD Ultralight question

    Does anyone here used the new Dd UL hammock with net? Before i order, i want to know more about the bug net when attached. Looks to me that the tighter the hammock ridgeline, the further from your face the net will be, but am i right in thinking that a taught line will alter the lay? I always...

    Sharpening systems

    I have many systems i've used including DMT's but my fav is the knock-off edge pro. I'm lazy so want an easy system which will do the job with the least effort! Dave Budd can show you how to do it properly though. Here's Dave at the recent knife show.

    Aero roof bars worth it?

    I thought i had lost my aero bars and bought some square lidl ones. Quite a difference in noise but could never notice a fuel difference. When my roof box was returned to me by a friend after a year he returned my aero bars too which i had forgotten he had. No noise now.

    Blacks on the blacklist

    I spent £140 on a pair of Sealand boots and whilst i had them for 4 months, they were only worn 4 times b4 the rubber on one split so no longer waterproof. They wanted them back for inspection too. Now when i bought two ceiling lights from Argos, they both became faulty within a year and i...

    Making Sparks with a Fire Steel

    Alternatively, just get yourself a small round file and file half a circle into the spine and use this part to strike. It has the added advantage of removing the forocium evenly.

    Food Sticking/Burning in Billycan, poss mod?

    Mt Trangia Duossal offers best of both worlds. Aluminium base and outer with pressed SS inner. Can scrub the hell out of it and very good heat transfer.

    Food Sticking/Burning in Billycan, poss mod?

    +1 for silicon sheets. I also burn the hell out of my Zebra's but a little bit of Oven cleaner left in the bottom over night and it's as good as new. I also use my Zebra on it's side over a gas ring with the lid on and it becomes an oven. I put the silicon sheet in the bottom too to catch any...

    DD underblanket.

    Bought mine a few months back and i thought it would pack down smaller than it did. That said, i used a much smaller and lighter bag which offset it. No plans on using it now until autumn but im more than happy with the quilt.
