    Anyone Up For A Drink - Lancashire

    Probably one drifting into the other (hic) The reality is I won't be leaving County Durham until lunchtime (need to sober up first) so by the time I've got home, unloaded the bike, got washed and back into Manchester it'll be 4pm at the earliest for me.

    Coffee and coffee grinding.

    I purchased one of these recently which has very good reviews on the US coffee sites. I use it with a Bialetti Brikka. Very compact and does a great job...

    Bushcrafting with a katana

    As of 6th April 2008 the The Criminal Justice Act 1988 (Offensive Weapons)(Amendment) Order 2008 came into force and Katanas are now classed as offensive weapons. So no they are not subject to the same laws as fixed blades, but to the same laws as flick knives, push daggers, knuckle dusters etc...

    How NOT to fell a tree

    In the original vid I was waiting with bated breath for a kickback followed by a leg becoming detached... Hoping to have enough money to learn chainsaw next year, but it's something to do all the way or not at all.

    Can anyone recommend a double sided sharpening stone or alternative?

    Double sided stone and strop would be best yes. I always use my belt to strop for field sharpening. As to stones it's a choice of diamond or stone. Diamond as mentioned DC3/4. Stone I'd go for a Japanese waterstone 1000/6000 cut down (or seperate slipstones). The Gransfors axe stone also...

    legal folder idea

    Umm don't want to open up another can of worms but I would say no, it wouldn't be legal. Neither would FGYT's in the linked thread. Neither are Svords IMO, having knowledge of the judgments handed down on S139 and being a Clerk of the Court. I've just checked Hennie and although they sell the...

    Naughty corner theme for 2011

    My first thought was to dye my hair white and go as a wizard. For some reason though everyone suggested Uruk-Hai - must be my smile :) Thinking about costume already, something OTT to terrify the kids haha. Thanks to all at the Bushmoot though, expecially those of you in the NC, I had a...

    Anyone Up For A Drink - Lancashire

    Either is good. Salisbury if next to Oxford Road train station, Waldorf next to Picadillly (and my work). I don't think the Salisbury does food.

    a shout out to all u moot goers

    Finally packed w00t. A hideous amount of weight for a motorcycle lol. Had to ditch the bivi in the end (to fit a sleeping bag in) so it's tent and tarp but shouldn't need the bag, nights are looking quite humid. I have my GB double headed felling axe strapped across the back (safely...

    The Woodlore/Nonok Golden Eagle Sleeping Bag - The Grainiest Review you'll ever get

    Glad you are liking your Golden Eagle. Just watch out for the vencro chest closures (inside and out) as if you leave the "hooks" part uncovered and free it tears into the surrounding fabric something rotten. Mines looking shabby after very little use. The cental zip is very nice. It has a...

    So what's your excuse?

    Booked the time off work to get ready for the moot. Washing, sharpening, (food) shopping. Still got to see if my lantern runs ok on this panel wipe I bought the other day then when all is sorted see how much will fit on the bike.

    Snugpak Sleeping Bags

    I've got the SF1 and SF2 at the moment. They are well made, very warm and pack down very small (apologies for the contradiction Shewie, just my view). I have a couple of Ray Mears bags of similar warmth and the pack size is huge in comparison. So yes, I'm a big fan of their bags and think they...

    Thermarest Neoair

    I've been using a pair of Neoairs for myself and SHMBO, mainly for bike rallys (10 per year) plus camping since they were first released and available in shops. Before that I was using a pair of Exped Airmats, before that a pair of Thermarest Prolite 3's. I also have an Exped Downmat 7 DLX which...
