You're all familiar with the term I take it? :)
Looking down through a couple of posts concerning issues related to it and I have to ask... How many here can hand-on-heart say that the phrase is true for them in the "wild"?
Anyone going this weekend?
Might try to make it down on the Sunday but my back is absolutely wrecked, beginning to suspect a herniated disc :( which will require a trip to the Doc (at least).
Typical of me to get hurt when there's something good on...
Just looking at the Lidl hadout that dropped on the doormat, from next Thursday (16th) they have a folding saw on "special" as part of a gardening promo.
The picture has the blade marked "Helpmate - High Carbon Steel SKS-5"
Not sure how good it is but at 2.99 in the North and 3.99 in the...
To everyone who I'd agreed trades with.... Sorry.
Was going to PM you all but this seems as good a solution.
Had a bit of a domestic incident which resulted in me having to move out for a while :p
All resolved now... Or at least the ceiling is back on the living room and the ground...
Some of you who have been around for a while will remember my... Problems, shall we say with my WS Dartmoor.
All was satisfactorily resolved.
However, a new chapter in the story has been opened with this
That's the knife I returned..... It was supposed to have been destroyed during...
I've been staying away from home since Boxing Day, in Hillsborough (which is lovely BTW). Last night there was a fire in the grate I had a glass of wine to relax with... There was nada on telly, the PC was in use and I was feeling just a little bit restless.
Then it happened... :eek: :eek...
I have lots (and lots and lots) of disposable hexy "stoves" from French rat-packs, almost exactly the same as the one pictured here (packaging is different).
Each comes with matches and puritabs.
Lidl N.I are doing fishing kit as their "weekly special" this week, cheap rods (spinner, beach caster & a boat rod £15-£17) Rods and reels are reasonable for the money although if you're a serious fisherman they probably won't be of interest the "tackle" included is tat. I got a couple of the...
Was browsing through www.equipped.com this afternoon and happened upon a thread describing how one user had modified a longish saw blade, using his trusty dremmel to slot into the lanyard ring/pocket clip groove on the Leatherman Charge.
First "modification" of kit I've seen in ages that I...
Finally got my Leatherman Charge Ti yesterday afternoon :-)
First impressions, it's a lot sturdier than the original Wave, with only a very small amount of handle play evident. Locking of the internal tools seems very positive, probably better than the liner lock on the outer "blades".
Right, you lot are full of good ideas.
I've decided for the third or fourth time that I need to stop the smokes.
The last time lasted very nearly a year, but Christmas (2003) got me back on.
I don't want to hear about patches, gum or whatever, while nicotine withdrawl is a problem, I can...
The Army has designed a website for those who might be thinking about joining up after school or getting a taste of it in the Cadets.
It has a "survival" section with a few bits and bobd relevant to Bushcraft and if all else fails there's a game or three :)
