    Thanks chaps ;) the big chopper (logsplitter) i bought as i got a logburner installed so it is really for home use, the others i use depending on size of backpack i take :)


    The spending helped me get thru :D well that's what i keep telling myself :eek:
    & i know they're good/wise buys because i use them all thru out the yr so to me that warrants the money spent :)

    Nice little stash there mate. Can't help noticing the hammock, I've had the Explorer for about three or four years now. What's the Safari like, it's next on my list. I also recently got a Barmah hat and I'm loving that. Interested in your bag, what is it?

    Woodland the safari is big mate at first it was strange sleeping tho as you sleep on the diaganol* but it holds my kit & three terriers :)

    The bag is a Fjallraven 30 ltr you do need to wax them but it is light & sits comfy & takes my kit :)

    Hats/kit are a personal choice what you like others don't, i don't care if i look a right tw@ in a hat it's not a fashion parade in woods, as long as the kit you buy you use i don't see anything wrong in it :D
