    Could I have become allergic to forests.

    Since I was the only one who mentioned an epipen, I'll point out that I began with agreeing with the advice to see his GP - and my mention of epipens were in my description of my suddenly changing allergies, nowhere did I suggest anyone else use one unless prescribed. And having had 2...

    Could I have become allergic to forests.

    It's very possible to develop an allergy - and with worse symptoms. I agree with those who suggest your GP, an asthma reliever should help make an attack less severe and might buy you time for the anti-histamine to work. It's not something to mess about with though - at New Year I'd to go to...

    The League of Pipe smokers!

    If anyone wanted to try out the cigar pipe, Morgan's have collaborated with Missouri Meerschaum to produce a corncob version. $18.99 in the USA, worth asking GQ about getting some in, they stock both Morgan's and Missouri Meerschaum. http://www.morganpipes.com/store/p76/The_Cob_Cigar.html I...

    Food storage for meets.

    I got a new Igloo Marine coolbox for a weekend at the Scone Game Fair (aim was more cold drinks but certainly kept bacon & hotdogs and a tub of spreadable butter nice and cold too). It was about £45 and had impressive performance, I put 6 bags of ice in on the Thursday night & still had ice on...

    A big thank you

    Well done Hamish, my Mum still uses the 'Book of Wisdom' you made for her (through this forum as well) & it's ageing nicely, with marks from kitchen use, occasional dusting of flour etc. I've been off the forum for a while & missed you moving to D&G, hello neighbour (if 60 miles can be...

    Gone Fishing

    Keep an eye out for any Game Fairs around you, I was just volunteering at the Scone Game Fair (near Perth), and they were taking people out for a one on one introduction to fly casting all through the 3 days.

    Midge repellent recommend

    Your Dad was a wise man. I go bat watching near Drumlanrig Castle some evenings (at the bridge you cross going to it, 2/3 species, flying above you & below you) and have stood in a fog of midges, smoking a bowl & left alone, but conscious they were going to have me when the pipe runs out :D...

    Even Morgan's Bare Bones will not be reject briar, the guy takes his pipes and quality seriously. I emailed his site about the mouthpiece in my briar being a wee bit loose & he replied personally first thing the next morning (California time). Samon, the briar is a great outdoors pipe, my goto...

    I buy my supplies from him or King of Smokes depending on what I'm after. Would love it if he got some of Morgan's Bare Bones series in.

    The League of Pipe smokers!

    Just been reading the thread & catching up on the forum (a long time since I've been on the board, life interfering with things unfortunately). I'm still smoking the pipe, and have expanded the collection. Tobacco of choice is a Century Buttered Rum/Maduro mix. The Collection is now: Main...

    Sourced a major part of "the self sufficient laundry"

    Just don't put a kilt through the mangle - my Dad still talks about the smacked lug he got for that bit of 'helping' when he was a boy......

    New program about the Scottish Winter

    If you have Sky it will be in the 960-980 range in the channel guide. 970 I think (can't check as I'm in Scotland), should be viewable on iPlayer as well.

    How to turn an android phone into a dedicated gps device

    Aye, it's not the worst idea - old android phone, make it dedicated device, maximise power usage and have a dedicated device that you can use without being too concerned if you lose/break it..... Think I'll dig one out and give this a try.

    Falcon's eye view of hunting ... Wow !!!

    Great footage, interesting difference in technique, with a stern chase approach instead of sending the bird high and stooping approach. Suppose the relative speed and agility of the bustard against the grouse would account for that.
