Re: "new" sticking plasters....

Ordered and awaiting delivery! Thank for this, like some have said, it's more stay at home but I'll stick one in the car kit too. Much appreciated! I keep a roll with my FAK, short length of gunline through the middle and tied to the bag. Never had to use it in anger fortunately but had a play and ...

Re: Compact Bow Saw

I tried to buy one a few years back off Amazon and for some reason it fell through, I've been using a cheap Aldi folding garden saw and a kukri for wood prepping, I do like the look of those though, its still on my list. Glad it worked for you.

Re: Boil in the bags meals

They're nice enough but small portions - ok if you're not that active but if you were walking all day I think you'd want something more robust. Our local Asian shop does lots of b-i-t-b curries and they go well with a pack of Uncle Ben's. Quite salty though, which again could be good if you were ve...

I likey.

Sort of like a sterile Vet wrap. :mrgreen:
I've got loads of the vet wrap stuff, keep a roll of it 'ready use' tied to my FAK. Handy stuff.

Re: Fire lighting.

The small round Clippers are good too, last for ages and can be refilled. The cheapy shops do them for 2 a quid, keep one in my mess set, fire kit.... a few spares kept too of course. You can also replace the 'flint' in Clippers so they last until you lose them.... This is why I buy the blaze orang...

Re: Fire lighting.

I like Zippo lighters, I really do. Trouble is, they have to be ‘managed’ all the time, ‘ cos all of a sudden the fuel has dried up ( about 5 days). That’s why I like the ‘10 for a pound ‘ disposable jobs. I am using throwaways I bought 11 years ago. The small round Clippers are good too, last for ...

Re: Size does matter...

Use my 'tick pick' from time to time on the dugs, well one mostly, one is tickbait and the other one hardly gets any and they're brother and sister from the same litter so can't figure that one out. Its something like this.... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Long-Paws-TickPick-Tick-Remover/dp/B01C2J42KA/re...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

When it comes to beer, then use Muntons or Coopers kits. I am not a lager boy, but my wife likes a drop, and the Australian lager from coopers is bang on. A while back I did have a nose around and there's a LOT of options out there, we're working our way back round to giving it another go. Cheers f...

Re: Spectacles

I am due an eye test next week. I shall get an update, sort a couple of pairs of reading specs... but in the meantime I have been using cheapo .99p 2.0 strength jobs. They have worked VERY well, and I have a pair on me, at work, in the work shop and in my fishing box. I shall make sure a pair goes ...

I forgot to say.. I add an extra racking and settling stage with my beer. Always bottles, never kegs. Plus, use the right yeast, not necessarily what comes with the kit.
Thanks again Jenny, its something that me and the missus have talked about having another crack at.
