Going away again.
« on: January 05, 2012, 10:05:33 PM »
Just to let you lot know that I'm heading off once more.  Four day hike this time going from Aberfeldy to Crieff (where Ewan McGregor is from don't-you-know ;)).  Not taking a proper camera with me this time, but I'll snap some phone pics if I remember. :)

Cheers chaps. :cheers:  As to what MT.org type stuff I've packed; I've got my 84mm modded SAK with me, my bushcraft knife and Bahco saw.







Also I'm taking my Jetbeam Pro-1 (with added head band) and E05 lights.

That knife is really nice. Is it a custom?

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

It one from a chap called David Batstone, a small time maker that used to sell on ebay.  Not sure if it is quite 'one-of-a-kind', and it sure wasn't made to my specifications, but it may have well have been. I love it. :)

 :pok: Try not to freeze! It must be quite cold up there.

Really, since you have a saw on the Victorinox you do not need the laplander, right?
 :D

EDIT: Or leave all behind and get one of these:

Well I'm back.  For those of you who are sharp with their maths you might have noticed that it's not been four days. :-\  Sadly one of the guys I was out with was really starting to feel unwell (something a bit flu-like) and we took the decision to come home early.  still we did have a couple of days hiking, and the weather was OK for the most part, so not a total loss.

Dang, sorry your trip got cut short Gareth :-\ I'm sure your sick mate must feel awful too. Not only because of the flu stuff, but because he probably feels guilty about messing up everyone's plans. :(

Hope you guys can take another crack at it later on. :salute:

Sorry to hear your trip was cut short, have you rescheduled it?

Cheers chaps.  Nothing rescheduled yet, especially as one of the guys is flying back to New Zealand next week. :-\  I'm sure we'll do something else at some point.

Yeah, he was pretty cut up about it.  Obviously we did our best to tell him not to worry about it, but I know it probably didn't make him feel much better about it.  It's worth saying that this is one tough guy, ex-squaddie and super fit.  So if he says he's not feeling well, then you know he's really not.

Did you get to eat your Supernoodles? (Image removed from quote.)
I did indeed. :D
