Mike Reid - nyah nyah nyah....
Tom, Doug is probably passed out under the Trailstar right now, hopefully he sent out a final SPOT transmission so we know where to find him.I call dibs on his Trailstar.
Good lord. An hour? You are optimistic.
Doug....I've just sent the Scottish miscreant (not that he'd know what that means) a text to alert him to the thread :-)
Hey Doug,What did the weight on yours end up being??I would love to see some day-light photos of you laying down underneath it so we can get an idea of the room/protection that it provides!Thanks.
Get it right up yis ya bunch o gits. ;)Hopefully mine is on it's way. If it's in the Customs shed, it should get released within 2 weeks. Then another week for the horse and cart to ctoss the moors, if it manages to avoid the cave with the drunken hermit.

>Get it right up yis ya bunch o gits. ;)Still working on your spelling, huh Mike? :)
if it manages to avoid the cave with the drunken hermitHold on... You mean Doug is delivering the Trailstar to you? Shouldn't you contact the horse and cart guild and let 'em know that a drunken hermit has been opening packages along the way? I mean really! Testing cuben out on the moors is all very noble, but what if he spills the whiskey? Moor caves have been known to EXPLODE when cold hermits light fires.
>Moor caves have been known to EXPLODE when cold hermits light fires.Uh huh. I've been there, and its not a pretty sight.
You shouldn't have mentioned drunken hermits lighting fires.It's brought back memories of the time my new coal powered radio was supposed to get delivered. Anyway. I suppose i better alert the schoolteacher in the next glen. I'll need someone who can speak and write english to sign the forms when it arrives.
On a serious note, I'd love to backpack Scotland someday.
If you ever visit, Travis, stay away from the Ayrshire coast. The Sawney Bean family lived in caves there, and used to eat travellers. :) Story HERE

Duly noted! Cannibals and I never really got along well anyways. Their personalities really gnaw at me for some reason.
The miscreant himself - the juice resulting in a shockingly pitched shelter........he'll never handle the Trailstar!
I do like the guru at the top of the hill. A sloshed, genuflecting, awed Mike is an uncoordinated Mike?(Edited for false identities...)

I'll admit to being in a rush to get it pitched. Some nice single malt refreshment was calling me. :)
True......and a fine Scottish summer day to enjoy....
Mike, what bivy/groundsheet are you going to use with the Trailstar?
Depends on time of year, bugs, etc.Probably my Bristlecone, but i think i'm going to order some mesh to rig up a bug free 'bag' using the internal hoops on the Trailstar. I would like to be able to use all that space during bug season.
Wow, don't get that sctoch bottle mixed up with the pee bottle, eh?
"Wow, don't get that sctoch bottle mixed up with the pee bottle, eh?"A a bottle or two of scotch, it's pretty much the same thing......
