Some of you lads must be taking a wheel barrow with you, or not venture far from the truck 😂 

Personally I like a little cycling one man tent, tiny, light weight and warm. Usually take two lightweight plastic sheets to, one for above and one below, that way your kit outside the tent also stays dry etc.

Here’s the best bit of advice you will get, don’t use a gas stove in cold weather…..when it gets cold enough, they won’t even light.

Invest in a multi fuel stove, I have one that can burn gas, petrol, diesel, meths and paraffin……it’s an amazing bit of kit.

A bit off subject but I'm in the market for a decent family tent, a 5 man or similar size. 

Been looking at the air tents and the canvas bell tents but I don't have a clue which would be better. 

Any suggestions would be appreciated. 

We've got the Outwell air tent; piece of piss to set up and very roomy. We only looked at Outwell, vargo and berghaus as they all had best reviews and highest HH

These canvas swags are canny bits of kit, not for carrying too far though

There's still plenty to do, but I've cut a decent ride, and done a load of thinning

      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
