Lovely Photos

Stephenson's Warmlite Review
Ace! I really look forward to it (too much really, my son and partner despair how much I visit this site!).

Surely that argument is a tongue in cheek wind up! If not then I am aghast!

Every time I see a gun I fill my pants. They scare me rigid (in the UK you don't see many guns, thankfully). Simply put they are machines designed to kill. Accidents will happen = fact; ...

Big Sky International Convertible 2P Tent
Looks a cracking all round tent; I've been looking for a good light all-rounder for a while, and there really is not a tent that can be that - but this comes very close. The other tent I'm...

Many many thanks; I get too few compliments in life, possibly because I am a fan of the 'shallow' thought!

Chuff me
All this chaff needs a bit of perspective: read Wilson Demarin (wilsond)'s review of the spork! Solo tent shortage on the horizon?

Trekking Poles

Trekking Poles
Really? The Ti Goat ones are adjustable as well - and they are still ok for skiing? If so I'll wait for some to be back in stock, if not I'll get the STIX. Ace!

I ordered a product from GG (and I live in the UK) and it arrived quickly but unfortunately it broke on the first use; I sent Grant an email and a photo and without question he sent a replacement - wh...

Antigravity Gear .4 oz pepsi style alcohol stove
This is one of my favourite pieces of gear: cheap, light, functional, and just plain pleasing. I intend buying a few for mates for birthday presents as these aren't very common in the UK, and the...

Montbell UL Down Inner Jacket
This is the perfect jacket for so many conditions and places. With layering I wore it as my main warm wear whilst camping at 700m in winter on a col in Scotland, in snow and winds; it's also ...

Hilleberg Rajd
I managed to pick up a damaged Rajd (cheap!) in the States last year, and it's been in my cupboard until this weekend, sad to say. I took the tent as we were running in a two day mountain marat...

I'm just back from 2 nights' backpacking in Scotland, with my Wild Oasis, the first time I have used a floorless shelter. I think that for Scotland this shelter is as minimalist as I dare go,...
