    Under quilt pre-attached

    It takes me a while to set up camp sometimes. Not really a problem but I would rather be sitting around having a beer or getting on with other things rather than fiddling g around with hammock quilts. Last time I took down my set up I realised that my DD front line and DD under quilt just...

    She loves me really.

    Great rum to drink neat but also makes a great limey rummack (spiced rum, firey ginger beer, muddled lime, ice). There are many similar drinks but only mine is called the limey rummack.

    hobo or honey

    I love a good thread resurrection! I've used my hobo gassifier... should probably say (hobo wood-gassifier) a few times now and it works just fine. Need to put a stand on it but by faithful feline has already polished off some waitrose fancy tinned cat food. Empty tin should be about the right...

    Camping with dogs?

    Used to work in a vets and fear of fireworks or thunder is very common. One thing we taught is to not make a fuss. The dog looks to you as it's pack leader and if you're making a big fuss after a loud bang it thinks something must be wrong. If you're as chill as possible even to the point of...

    Hanging rope (for hammocks of course)

    Well if you all think whoopie slings are all that I might as well try them. Especially as a kindly forum member had already offered to make me a pair! Thanks for all your input everyone. I'll play around with a few set ups and no doubt come to the same conclusion as you all have already?
