My Locale United Kingdom
About Me I live just north of London in the UK near to the Chiltern Hills and adjacent to open countryside. I'm within walking distance of several iron age settlements and one of the oldest walking trails in the UK. Natural springs, woodlands, water mills, windmills, old churches, castles and an abundance of wildlife are all within walking distance and are great for weekend trips.

For longer trips, well the glaciated lakes of the lake district and the mountains of Scotland and Wales beckon.

The UK is truly an amazing place!

Re: Re: Aquamira & My Yellowish Platy!
Yes, there was a small bottle of liquid Iodine solution with the idoine crystals in it. Again, didn't notice any leak in that though but you have got me thinking. If it did leak, there was no disce...

Aquamira & My Yellowish Platy!
I have had a 1L Platty now for two to three years. In fact I have several different sizes and have never had a problem with any of them. I recently stored them in a draw in my attic as usual. Ho...

Re: Tarptent vs. Double Walled Tent
Dane, thanks for your input. I hadn't realised that the tarp tents mesh was connected to the fly with no gap between. Never having actually seen a tarp tent in the flesh, all I had was the pictures...

Re: Re: Tarp - Tent - Tarp Tent??
David, if a tarpt ten has all an all netting interior as the pictures for the Contrail show, then doesn't that just make it a tent, or am I missing something?

I was just looking at the Tarptent Contrail Spotlite Review. It looks really great for the weight. So far I have been using a Terra Nova Laserlite at about 1100g. I have never used a tarp before, a...

Re: Re: Yet another flexair failure
If you have a dy bag with a roll top type seal, then you can alway trap air in that and use it as a pillow. That has worked for me in the past where I have had the bag with me as a pack liner.

Re: READERS - What do you want investigated in 2007?
I'd certainly like to see more trip reports to some of the further flung / more extreme parts of the world, like Ryans trip to the Artic. Also, some more basic easy reading articles. You don't a...
