    Wanted Hammock

    Would you say that either can fit into or be easily under-slung on a day sack? Or do they need their own bags? Probably going for DD as Hennesey, as you say are pretty pricey. Which one would you recommend for occasional days out? I’m thinking of going for a wander, stick up a hammock, heat...

    Wanted Hammock

    Does anyone have a hammock for sale? DD seem to be where it’s at but i’m open to suggestions.... and as always, educating in the ways of the Hammock. (They tell me dyslexia is a gift but i’ll resist posting anything about Haddocks... for now). I want a system that can be compressed to fit a...

    Need a mug to fit Trangia Triangle

    Thanks to all for thoughtful replies. Interesting to consider all the workarounds and yes, i’m a sucker for new kit. I’m going to try out all of the suggestions and see which best works for me. Pegs are more versatile, fan cover more specific. In my head,that’s a relatively small dilemma to...

    Need a mug to fit Trangia Triangle

    Hi, I have just been given a Trangia Triangle meths ‘stove’ but my mug is too small to sit on the stand. I can’t find one to fit it. I’m boiling water in a mug for short trips, so I don’t need to carry a kettle. Any suggestions? thanks.

    It was one of those low, red full moons over the wilderness of Brighton. The waves gently lapped the pebbled shoreline and some bloke was swearing at his kebab. “In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees”

    This bench had been vandalised and the USB phone charging sockets had been nicked. This also affected the Wi-Fi which meant that ... ...I had to look at this. “In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees”

    Finished waxing my sack

    This is most definitely not what I was expecting to see but different strokes, horses for courses and all that.

    Something I have often wondered about, is whether Seasons happen at the same time throughout Britain or if there is some sort of delay in Spring blossoms due to some natural event which gradually travels across the land. The Japanese blossom event varies each year, so it’s possible to miss it...

    Which Musical Instrument?

    Similarly, my French live-in cultural adviser asked me to describe traditional English costume and even after looking for answers (way beyond un-English ‘Morris Dancers’), the answers weren’t forthcoming. Even looking for comparative cultural parodies didn’t provide anything. Same goes for...
