    I love my Canon Ixus 980 IS more and more every time I use it. Whilst the camera itself is great, it really doesn't come into its own until running the free CHDK utility which gives access to all sorts of extra features. One of these is the ability to run scripts and one of the scripts available...

    Where to hang in the Lake District

    Does anyone know of a campsite in the lakes that allows hammocks and camp fires? Tried Grizedale Campsite but it is no hammocks and fully booked for this weekend. I need a site as there are few of us going so stealth camping not really an option.

    Scottish midges - advice required please

    I have a couple of free weekends coming up and fancied a trip north of the border. Unfortuately, I react really badly to midge bites, coming up in big itchy lumps that last for days. What is the season for the little blighters and where are they best/worst? I fancied a bit of paddling -...

    Anyone use Toucan for their telephone service?

    I'm just about to sign up for Toucan and they seem to have a deal where if I get referred by an existing user, we both get a kick-back. If you do and you want to be my referrer, PM me the your phone number that is with Toucan. Ta, Mark.

    Krill lights

    I have been looking for a small lantern for my hammock for a while now. I like the UCO ones but they are bulky and chew through the candles - you would be looking at two per weekend. The LED type lanterns are better but they also have poor battery life. Then I can across the Krill lamps -...

    Outdoor Porn

    Just been looking through the SnowPeak catalogue. I can only describe it as "outdoors porn" and is highly recommended. For an online fix, check out their website at but it's nothing like the catalogue. It's just superb.

    A thought...and maybe an appeal

    Seems things are a bit heated of late, not just on this forum but on others I read too. Not exactly sure why. Perhaps, if we are going to discuss topics that may be deemed "sensitive", we could put a header in the subject line - "Hypothetical" for example. I was just reading the thread on...

    Married Life

    A couple had only been married for two weeks and the husband, although very much in love, couldn't wait to go out on the town and party with his old buddies. So, he said to his new wife, 'Honey, I'll be right back.' 'Where are you going, Coochy Coo?' asked the wife. 'I'm going to the...

    Lancs/Cumbria BC locations

    Can anyone recommend locations in Lancs, Cumbria or maybe West Yorks to practice bushcraft? Where do you go that is remote enough? How do you go about permissions and approaches etc? I'll be honest at this point and say that I usually sneak into places and go very low-key but I really...

    Where to buy Hennessy Safari

    I took the opportunity over the weekend to check out the Hennessey hammocks and thanks to Nigel, fell in lust with the Safari Deluxe. I have Googled today and found that the only real available option is buying in from Hennessy themselves in the US. My question here is: Does anyone know of...
