Here's a cuppla more pictures from Brian's camera, taken on our Frosterley radging session the other day.
In the meantime, me and my brother have just finally finalised in a final sort of way, my Mum's estate. Well, kindof anyway. The result is that I have a small amount of ready cash to dispose on items of backpacking equipment and as many if not some of my audience are experienced backpackers and all-round gear sluts, I wouldn;t mind some opinions on what I should buy.
I need the following:
1) A pan or pans. I like to cook things like porridge and the odd sausage, tattie scone and/or rasher of bacon. The pan or pans has to be lightweight and easily washed. (I usually heat a bit of water in the pan and sponge it out with a little sponge)
2) A new sleeping bag - lightweight, warm and packs up small, like. Probably down, I shouldn't wonder. Minus 5 would be OK, minus 10 would be abfab. (Or is this too much?)
3) Something to put it all in and carry it about. Light, robust and masculine. A bit like me, apart from the lightness and the robustness. And the masculine.. ahem, anyway.
Send you advice here. No money will be paid. What, oh what, shall I do, I'm in a tizzie.
