    I know that a fair few of us use Bolero drink sachets. I recently needed to replenish and eBay suggested and they arrived from Germany this morning. Great guys to deal with, 46 sachets for 17.50 euro inc all delivery and taxes. You just need to send them a...

    Any Dutch Buckle users?

    Is anyone using Dutch Buckles with woopie slings to hang their hammock? I got a couple of set in the group buy here sometime ago and just got round to pairing them up with suitable webbing. Fist impressions were that they were very easy and effective to use. Was really pleased at the weight...

    White Rose Wood --- not a meet

    [Mods: Rather than Out&About put in Mids meets due to venue move if necessary] I have been encouraged back into "coalface" Scouting for the last few months running a local scout troop while the regular leaders have chance to concentrate on the real world. This one of the original 1907 scout...

    A year not in the woods often enough

    I was not sure whether to post this at all, and where. In the end I decided on the RC Meeters group as it is pretty fits.... but it is too long for the limit there so the Mids social area it is. Tonight is an anniversary of sorts and I just wanted to express my thanks to you guys and gals -...

    A trek through the northern Chilterns

    This last weekend I was out assessing a Silver DofE group from a neighbouring Explorer unit, may be it was not the most technically challenging route but an expedition is also about achieving something and they certainly collected lots of evidence for their project work. I did wonder at times if...

    Another outdoor shop SALE

    Went in on Saturday morning to get some climbing kit for my son ( presents by proxy) and discovered that my local independent high street specialist outdoor shop have started their sale early so the bill had shrunk. They are towards the more technical end of the gear market but worth a look if...

    The soggy Black Mountains

    Some of the Rough Close Regulars will know my son Chris who spent about 18 hours in his hammock during "The Great Flood of PC11" whilst the water flowed freely below and the Ground Dwellers floated away :lmao: Last week he again demonstrated his knack with the weather and squelched his way...

    Sabre fit Side Pockets

    Good evening Kit Gurus Having acquired a second hand Sabre 45 I was having a look around at pockets. As side pockets appear to come in various degrees of "expense" what are the relative pros and cons of Standard PLCE vs Arktis vs Karrimor SF (forgetting Predator side pockets as they look...

    Used The Bushcraft Store recently?

    Just wondering if anyone has used the bushcraft store (bdu imports) recently? I ordered a knife kit from them which has never arrived.

    Rough Close - July 2011 - Pictures

    A different pitch at Rough Close this time, we were towards the back of the site using the "Leaders Training Field" which meant we had the use of an area of principally spruce with the usual RC mix of broadleaved trees, hazel youngsters and holy bushes. However we also had a sun-trap field...

As I am almost certainly going to be ordering a hammock direct from Hennessy very shortly I can offer the possibility of combining to make use of their pricing. If...
