    What's new in the barefoot shoe world?

    It's not just lightness or zero drop that appeals. Wide toe boxes that allow room for the toes to actually work is a major plus!

    What's new in the barefoot shoe world?

    Look on amazon and ebay, sometimes Vivobarefoots come up cheap there. I always check for sales, my last pair, Scott desert boots only cost me 55 quid in the end! Awesome boots, my fave out ot the 6 pairs of Vivos I have.

    We are nearly done. Just clothes left. Still need to make my Sith lord cloak though. And to mess things up totally I'm off on a road trip to Bridgend to pick up a van I stupidly put a bid on Ebay and won!

    Pure wool army greatcoat? Which one's the best??

    I have the old Swedish greatcoat. Fantastic quality wool and beautifully made. They are getting pricy now mind, I got mine about four years ago. Have just replaced all the buttons (most had fell off due to old cotton thread anyway) with some cool old brass ones.

    I made one of these some time ago. I replaced the lens with a strong magnifying glass. I have no idea where it is now though!

    Double hammocks.

    Look up the Dutchware Chameleon. The ultimate setup for double hammocks, only one downside, price! We have one Chameleon, it is excellent. Would get another but cannot afford it at the moment.

    Surplus parkas

    I was lead to believe it's Horsehide and sheepskin collar. It certainly feels tough enough to be Horsehide. Wool lining and bakelite buttons on mine too dated 1941.
