    Ventile Jacket

    I don't know if this is the right bit to post this on - if not, I apologise - its been a couple of years since I was on this forum and the new look has confused me!

    Victorinox Mauser Knife

    Can anyone help me with a question? I came home from a holiday in Germany on Friday night, to find that we had been burgled.

    4x4

    Speaking of 4x4s, my old Peugeot is overdue for replacement - it's holding on well, but time's running out! What do you think of the new -shape Jeep cherokee as an offroader? I ask because there is a dealer at the bottom of my road, and my wife likes the look of them! I don't like Defenders ...

    Alcohol Burner

    This might seem to be yet another free plug for Outdoorcode, but I swear I'm not on commission. I've been using a trangia for over 30 years now on both backpacking and vehicle mounted trips, and overall I do swear by it (and often at it). I've just got the stainless steel Tatonka alcohol burner...
