I thought about it too when I saw his latest vid last night but decided I can live with fanning with my sit mat for now. You lot aren't helping me resist though. Have you seen the new stove from Tinny Rich? A smaller version of the squirrel cage. Looks good. Let me know how you get on with the mini-atomic and QMH kit. I was worried they may be a bit small so didn't go for them but they do look good and if not too restrictive then may relent.

I don't think the MA will be much use for cooking anything apart from dehydrated stuff, I've got it more for just making a quick brew when I'm out and about. Been meaning to get one for ages so we'll see how it goes.
As for the Airgrill, well it just had to be done. I can see someone chucking it in the fire one day though when that squealing gets a bit much :) Should be handy for a little forge in the field too I thought

Not shiny but green- picked up my customised double-ventile smock from Hilltrek. They added side zips, upper sleeve pockets on each arm, kangaroo type pouch pockets raised to allow use with hip belt and new style wired hood. Oh and they sewed on my BCUK badge on for me too. Not cheap, but quality rarely is!

Will write up a review with pics when I've had a chance to use it in anger.

Ooh - sounds like mine.

Just ordered £1,800 of kit :) though not for me !
Including ropes, tarps, Kelly Kettles, Laplander saws, bowsaws, Mora 511s, 2 Wetterlings axes, firesteels, billhooks and work gloves.
It is all for working with forest school groups and conservation volunteers :) Honest !

I bought a folding plastic mug, a packet of Esbit tablets and a bottle holder with a carabiner clip. I also bought a waterproof case with neck cord and a chunky multitool with a pouch. Added to this I took delivery of seven, yep count 'em, folding knives. One for every day of the week. I am haemorrhaging money on my new hobby but I'm happy and that's what counts.

My newest purchase has been a golite silnylon poncho tarp. Arrived the other day and I've only had the chance to try it out as a windbreak whilst I had a cup of tea this weekend,



I like it, packs down into a 1 litre exped drybag which is suhweet - a bit smaller than my '58 pattern poncho LOL. I intend to use it as my summer hammock tarp pitching it on the diagonal, and at the moment as it's cold and windy and rainy and snowy I can hang it up to block one of the sides of my DD tarp which is awesome.

Going to buy a Brusletto Balder too,




Quite a character - sounds like his missus doesn't like him in the house much. I'm not surprised… ;-)

…and I just bought an Airgrill today!
Lol, you couldn't resist could you :)
I have to admit I googled it when I saw him use it on his Finland trek video...

Shug's awesome but damn -26C bit of a nutter...

Nonsuch- it is very much like yours.... I took your pics in to them and said "I'd like something this please" they replied " not another one, this picture is obviously doing the rounds!"

Thanks for unwittingly let me use your jacket for inspiration- will buy you a beer should we ever meet!
