Aye thats the one, have had it for years, used it for camping when away on the motorbike if the weather was decent didn't even pitch the tent. 

Sit drinking and smoking round the campfire and just tuck your legs in and zip it up and your in bed lol.

I had a German army one with a waterproof back, slèeves and a handy zip that meant you could have a crap without taking the whole thing off. Sadly it was one of the things that got lost when ae moved. It was ideal for night watching in the pheasant season. 

Have you seen the Carinthia survival 1?

Looks like the same as I had. They are a bit too bulky and heavy for hiking unless you were hiking back from the Russian Front in 1945 that is. Ideal for laying out in the woods waiting for poachers though. One of those and a poncho strung over it was ideal.

I had an American Army poncho made for rubberised material that is 100% waterproof, but not breathable so better as a tarp. A mouse got into my van a few years ago and ruined it. Last week I bought a job lot of fishing stuff and found an jdentical, as new, one in the bag. It is useful for when I'm fishing a long way from the car as it is lighter and more compact than a brolly. The poncho and a ball of nylon cord does the job.

I use two sleeping bags, for different times of the year. A lightweight one for most of the year (with a silk sock if the temp dips) and a cold weather one that is rated down to -20°C for colder times of the year or if we are going high up. I also have a fleece blanket that we take to the beach, if we're sleeping there. Put that on the inflatable mattress and chuck a sleeping bag over you.. banging ;)

Sky side on kirkstone pass 

Nice spot there.

You could have done an overnighter in the Priest's hole cave on Dove crag not far from your campsite and saved a few bob. I've always fancied a night in there but I wouldn't be too happy if anyone else turned up with the same idea. There's a video on YouTube of a fella staying there for the night and another chap shows up and he's brought his acoustic guitar with him and is strumming away all night...ffs!!😂

      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
