    My take on a solo cookset

    I was packing my rucksack today (I know I know.... we cant go anywhere but I like the process....[emoji1787]). I like my gear to be robust, simple to use and preferably, able to fit with other gear I already have. It came to mind that over course of time, I have used many different cooksets and...

    COVID Garden Camping!

    No, it's a 2 ft metal fire pit, buried into the ground, but the pictures does make it look rather small![emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Downsizing.

    Wow. The detail that has gone into this is incredible! I'm lost for words. Un/fortunately for my wife, the smallest thing I can safely be trusted with tinkering with is a plug! Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    The scent of nostalgia

    Creosote. The smell immediately takes me back to my childhood and most importantly, to my grandads shed. Every year he would spend a week redoing the shed and all the fences and the veg garden edging. That shed was a treasure chest of stuff for me as a child. A long work bench on one side...

    Armchair Bushcraft

    This COVID19 malarkey has stopped us all camping out hasn't it! So what does one do when not allowed to camp....? Why, prepare camping gear of course! It may have been noticed that I have been selling stuff on here recently quite a bit. Well that's because I've been trying to get money together...

    Wooden Trekking Pole

    Off the top of my head..... initial thoughts are that 'stout' and 'folding' with regard to wood for a walking stick isnt gonna work [emoji848] however...... Also off the top of my head, one pole, cut into a 3/4 length and a 1/4 length (shorter fatter section at the top), held together with a...

    Mornin.......

    Thanks Tony. I'll wait for funds to get the roll mat or the wife wont approve..... Always thinking positive, at least this lockdown gives me time to test out the tent in a safe location, put it up, take it down.... the kids will have fun in it as well. It's amazing how you have to relearn the...

    Are we buying more or less stuff?

    I'm carrying on as normal. So not buying stuff because I think I'll need it, only buying things that I do need. One of the things I do need is a new large rucksack for camping.....[emoji1787] Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
