I spent a fortune on lightweight gear before I went to nz. I was bloody glad of it walking up those hills though! It lasts well to be fair and been using it ever since so can't complain

Can't beat ally pots and pans etc for hiking up a mountain. I used to take a heavier steel pan with me... fuuck that nowadays 😂

Decathlon 10euro full set, lasts at least 2 years ;)

A great tip I once got and used forever after was a small, non stick, high sided frying pan…..it’s literally all you need and it’s practically self cleaning.

Plastic utensils obviously which again are lighter.

PCB's mate... I don't use nothing non stick to cook with bud. Anything coated is gonna leave crap in your body that you will never get out, Google it ;)

For the amount of times it gets used, it genuinely wouldn’t worry me mate.

Edited to add:

I don’t  use any non stick products at home, it’s all plain iron or steel.

But the practical benefit of non stick in a non domestic environment is fantastic and the risk only pertinent to the amount of times it gets used whic let’s face it, is no more than twice a day for a couple of days here and there.

If you are still up in the lakes head over to Derwent, the top end, opposite Keswick where the river runs into the lake. Beautiful country and there's a really good pub/hotel that used to do amazing food. Also in Ambleside get yourself to Lake Road kitchen or the old stamp house ;) forest side hotel is also good if you want Michelin star food ;)

Yes im not too bad with it now mate i still try to avoid tight little lanes as much as possible but practise makes perfect and all that....i still find it off putting having the ol woman wandering about in the back making cups of tea while we're driving im not totally sure of the legalities to that but all in all its not going too bad this is by far the most driving ive done in years and must admit im quite enjoying it 😄

We're back down this end now mate though will be back up at some point as we met a smashing couple we're going to keep in touch with,surprised me actually as most northerners in my experience are right boring b*****ds 😆 but we had a good ol laugh with these they had a beautiful cottage not too far from Keswick a place called Matterdale on Lake Ulswater is it....we'll be back up to visit at some point so will put them few places in my notes,cheers :thumbs:

      I want to purchase a pair of boots for the colder weather, I do a lot of walking, and some trekking about the hillsides and trails. I do not want "winter boots" but rather boots that would be suitable for a cold day, but would work with layers of socks rather than thick heavy boots. Several people have told me Meindl is an excellent brand, and that is great, but what kind ? Hiking ? Walking ? Do they make them that they would serve the purpose mentioned above ? Any specifics to look for in a boot for this purpose ?
      Thank you in advance,
      Lynn

      Sorry gentlemen to bother you, but I have come to my wits end. My neighbour across the way lets her dog roam as it please when it comes to shitting and urination, she is too lazy to actually take the dog out herself. He seems to have taken to my property and a certain area just under my bedroom window. I do not want to hurt the dog for the sake of her ignorance, but I do very much need to stop him from doing it any longer. The grass and  the shrubs are dying and turning brown and the flowers are just rank with smell that floats up through my bedroom window.
      He is a VERY OVERWEIGHT beagle and leaves behind some damn good deposits.
      I am wondering short of doing something stupid, what can I do to deter the dog from that area or any patches of garden I have? I plan to go to the council about the problem, and lay some of it on the town manager who is an acquaintance of mine, but in the meantime, any tricks out there to make my flowers and bushes unsavoury.
      Thank you in advance,
      Lynn
