    Advise on DSLR.

    I bought a 600D at the start of last year and then upgraded to a 60D in September. The 60D feels so much better than the 600, not dramatic difference in image quality as it is the same sensor fundamentally but it's just so much nicer to use. Think the high ISO noise reduction is slightly better...

    Any night shift workers on here?

    I used to work them in blocks of 2 weeks every 6 weeks as part of a rotating shift pattern. I'm gonna be a sadist here and say I loved nightshift, although the trade off is I am NOT a morning person and I now work constant early shift :( Don't really have many tips as I did like it. One thing...

    Glencoe meet

    Need to look out the bow ties and the fine china for this meet methinks, sounds very upper class. 'Is that brandy kind sir?' 'No it's a vintage 2012 Jack Daniels kind chap....' .....And downhill all the way from there!

    Alpkit Gamma or Manta

    I have had the Gamma and tbh I prefer the Manta, it seems brighter and you can also focus the beam. The one thing I really like though is that it can comfortably be worn around the neck when not being used so it doesn't get lost, I actually slept with mine on last weekend :lmao:

    Best Trip of 2013

    With the end of the year coming I felt like this would be a good time to start a thread that I think I started in 2011 and forgot about last year (Hence being early this year :lmao:) What has everyone's best trip of 2013 been? I would have to say that my best would have to be finally...

    Need Help with Boots

    Right I'm having a major dilemma, I need new walking boots and I don't know what to get :-/ I want them for probably hiking when hiking trainers aren't really appropriate so must be waterproof and possibly insulated. Plan to do some hills and backpacking so must be comfortable. In a nutshell I...

    Lightweight food

    Genius idea Mary :) My future backpacking meals are now sorted :D

    Lightweight food

    I love Totellini (Sp?) as a lightweight main meal. Boil in water for 3 mins and I find it a more substantial and filling food than most other things. It can also be covered in a tub of sauce but then this adds a bit of weight so not really adequate for the OP. Can still be nice on its own...

    How tough are Scotsmen?

    It has to be said Irn Bru is the drink of the Gods. And nothing beats a pizza crunch with chips and a side of Curries Red Kola, perfection in a sentence.

    Dont batton with your knife

    Can;t watch the videos as I'm at work but I baton with my knife all the time. Usually only the smaller stuff as I find you can be more precise and use a LOT less effort when splitting down kindling. That being said and I think it's been mentioned on here already, I would tend to steer away from...
