    Grub Stalker wellies. New. Size 10/11 for sale

    Selling a new pair of size 10 (though I think they come up more like 10.5) Grub Stalkers wellies. I got given these recently but already have a pair that should last me for some years yet so thought I'd pass them on. If if you've been a member on here for a while you probably already know...

    Do I have moths?

    So here's my situation:I love wool, particularly Merino and have a few jumpers and socks that are 100% In the last 6 months some of them have developed holes (from half a cm to 2cm diameter) but others haven't. I have one 100% merino jumper from Gap that has five holes across the back and...

    The 'I've found a bargain' thread

    Hi all As every now and again some of us post up when bargains are to be had, I thought why not start a thread that can be added to as and when anyone sees a real bushy bargain. Obviously not just your 5% offs and that kind of thing but just those occasions when a serious discount has been made...

    Student Develops Inexpensive Solar Lens To Purify Water

    Thought this is a pretty interesting concept to be developed further. Also there's always a part of me that is made quite happy in the knowledge that sunlight purifies water. (Though usually not so quickly as this!)...

    Sanitary towels as wound dressings

    Hi all I've always carried a sanitary towel in my FAK as a good compact absorbent dressing and used it just the other day to stem a glass wound in a leg complete (naturally) with a wrapping of duct tape. What's the thoughts on using them? I love the fact that they are cheap, do the job, readily...

    Delivering a baby

    So I searched and I think I may be the first to ask :-) My lovely lady is 8 months pregnant and it's set me to thinking. Obviously when she goes into labour I'll drive us to hospital. But , as it's winter and in recent years we've had snow enough to completely stop vehicles, including...

    Woolpower smelly quickly

    Bought a 200g woolpower t-shirt recently and love how warm it is and love even more the fact that it can be washed at 60 degrees despite being 60% merino. I adore merino for its climate control magic properties and the fact that it doesn't smell for a relatively long time. I have one merino...

    Type 1 Diabetes - minimalist carry kit

    Hi all Thought I'd post this in case it's of any interest. My other half has Type1 diabetes and it's bothered me for ages that her Insulin and blood test kit are kept in her handbag which is the most vulnerable place as: - The handbag is an item most likely to be stolen. - If you are...

    Photon Freedom LED coin / keyring torch

    So, I'd seen lots of good things said about these here and elsewhere but also seen many comments from those who said that they were expensive for what they were. It seemed to be a hell of a lot to pay for a small coin light. I figured that I would just buy lots of cheapie coin lights so I...

    Foot wear for India sandals, Jungle boots anything else?

    I'm off to India in a couple of weeks and am thinking about what footwear to take. My current thinking is either some decent sandals i.e. waterproof and sturdy for a bit of 'offroading' and/or Some surplus Jungle boots -but these are maybe a bit OTT? I'm wanting to stay fairly cheap...

    Back from first weekend in the woods Sunday night and just had a few minutes to bash out a post about it. I've been getting sick of looking at the inside of an office each day then only getting outdoors for a few light hours at the weekend, so at Christmas I decided that I was going to go...
