All the best for Ms Mechy, it's a good thing you were able to get an appointment see a specialist.

It drives me bonkers when people compare this to the flu because it's the only other virus they can think of.  We've been calling this SARS CoV2 because it's like SARS ... Not because we like capital letters  :rant:

 :iagree:

Went on a short hike and picnic with Misses TG-24 and our little girl last Friday.

Nice weather, beautiful scenery and no one else around, life can be good...





And of course, I had some tools along for the hike...

nothing like a fun lightweight tool to accompany you one a hike  :whistle:

Yep, for a normal person...

But for a multitool/SAK freak enthusiast it's not that easy... I always take a couple of different tools with me in my camera bag (the Signal and a Swisschamp were on my belt), just in case there's an opportunity to take some tool pics with some nice scenery in the background.

I know, I know...

Went on a short hike today with Misses TG-24 and our little girl (it's getting harder and harder to drag our two teenage boys away from their Playstations these days...  ::)).

Luckily our little girl loves hiking, and often suggests to go on a hike before me or the misses even talk about it.

And today was the first time in years I only took one tool on my belt (a Wave + this time) and one SAK in my pocket (my Vic Evo28) with me.

I normally take a variety of tools with me in my camera bag, only to take pics from them to post here, but those days are over, and from now on I'm only going to carry the tools I might need underway, and take some pics from them.  But my hikes will no longer be more photoshoot than hike...

So, here are some pics I took today, showing one of my favorite SAKs, the Victorinox Evo28.

Nice pics TG.  Glad your daughter wants to get out.  My younger one still likes to hike which is good.  She's 21 so I'm always happy when she agrees.  She's actually gotten a few of her friends into hiking as well.

This hike was also the first time I carried my new wristwatch.

A little warning first, those of you that don't want to read a loooooong incoherent rambling in flawed English, click away now...












So, you decided to stick around and give it a go... a brave but foolish decision  ::)

So, here we go...

I'd been on the lookout for a fieldwatch for a long time, in the past I bought a Seiko 5 Aviator, which is a cool "fieldwatch style" automatic.  But it's just too small on my wrist, I'm 193cm tall and used to wearing huge G-shocks like the GWG-1000 MudMaster, and the Seiko 5 just looked way too small on my wrist.

So the search continued... Took a long look at some of the Luminox, Citizen, Seiko Sport watches,

But pretty soon I came to the conclusion that years of solar powered Casio's had spoiled me, and I really disliked the idea of having to change batteries every two years or so, and same goes for all the little gizmos the Casio ABC watches offer (I love the combination of solar power and ABC functions, since you don't have to worry about battery life everytime you use one of the functions).   And although I really like the new Seiko Sport series, I just know I would miss the ABC functions every time I go out.

An analog Casio Pro-Trek had been on my wishlist for a long time as well, but at an average of around 400 Euro, they are a bit too pricey for my budget, and most of them are too flashy to even be considered a "fieldwatch" option anyway.

So, my search for a fieldwatch (or fieldwatch lookalike) was going nowhere...

Until I came across the Pro-Trek PRW-50Y-1AER, it has all the ABC functions (I know, a field watch should be simple, but like I said, I love the gizmos) , it's solar powered, it's multiband6 (so it synchronizes time each night), and it has quite a fieldwatch look, thanks to the fully numbered dial, the lumen, and the plain and simple (even a bit boring for Casio standards) look. 

But again, retail price was too steep for my budget, that is until I found a webshop that had the PRW-50Y-1AER on sale, at -57% discount, making it the cheapest full ABC Pro-Trek I've ever seen.

Knowing I was not going to find a better deal anytime soon, I went for it and a couple of days later, my new Pro-Trek arrived at my door.

So, here are the pics I took during our hike yesterday (later I will also post the indoor pics I took last week, including a lumen pic).

Thanks Aloha  :cheers:.

Great to hear that your daughter even gets her friends to start hiking  :tu:.

Our boys used to like hiking, but right now they are at that age that all of their friends sit behind their gaming consoles in their room, too young to go out and party, too old to play with toys...

And Covid-19 made things worse, since they were forced to meet through social media, or in their case, online gaming.

Oh well..., just as all other phases, this one will pass as well.

For now Misses TG-24 and myself try to enjoy every second our little girl wants to go out into nature, and we hope our boys will join us again sometime in the future.

Greetings from Belgium  :cheers:.

Working morning shift this week, so got home from work, jumped in and out of the shower to go and pick up my little girl from school, and we went straight to a small forest nearby for a short hike, since the weather was so nice.

One of my Mudmasters was on my wrist, God I love this watch...

Maybe I'll post some more pics of this hike tomorrow, but for now, this will have to do...  ;)

As promised, some extra pics from our short trip to the woods yesterday.

Nothing quite as fancy as the pics from my two friends above, just my Wenger Pathfinder (4th generation) at the local river "Nete", which runs next to the small forest where we had our little hike.

Those "old style" Wengers are just awesome, and that 85mm size feels great in pocket

Oooooh, very nice  :drool:.

I need to get myself some yellow knives or SAKs (I only have two, and that's Picachu which I won here and a Swiss Alpine Club Wenger Ranger).

I also like the looks of the yellow Vic Delémont Evo-Grip scales, but the Delémont series is a bit overpriced in my opinion.

And I can't seem to find those Evo-scales anywhere either.

Great pic my friend  :tu:.

Thanks for sharing it here  :salute:.

Edit: I own 3 yellow tools/knives, I forgot my Vic Rescue Tool.

Edit b: I own 5 yellow tools/knives, I forgot my 2 Leatherman Juice KF4's.

 :facepalm:

Well, actually, my oldest son found them (he's quite the Kimi fan, who knows where he got that from...).

 :whistle:

Anyway, we bought them here.  At 12 Euro the price/quality is good, and they are official team merchandise so...

We went for the fastest tracked shipping (since we also bought two caps, and a Kimi hoody) and everything got delivered, very nicely packed, 3 or 4 days after we placed our order.
