    Chicken of the Woods

    Is there anything out there that could be confused with Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus)? I ask as I found a lovely big bunch of brackets that looked exactly like it the other day, but unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me. I had a search, but didn't find any reference to...

    Sleeping bag advice

    I'm looking to buy a summer sleeping bag, however the bag has to be quite roomy as the person it's for says they don't like being constricted by mummy-style bags and I'm not convinced a caravan-style square bag is a good idea. I know this has been covered several times before, but I'm looking...
