    Left my peg bag in Pete's car. Did not notice till we where at the top of the mountain first night was a bivi 1/3 up so did not notice first night. Thought I had left them at the first bivi site, after much thinking left them and did not waist a day going down to look for them and borrowed extra pegs Pete had. So glad as it was the best day to be hiking on the hills was glad to find them in the car so I did not have to go back up in heavy rain and gusty wind that was just about blowing me off my feet in the valley.

    On my most recent trip I took a big Ribeye Steak and forgot my plate. Contemplated eating out of my new non-stick fying pan but would have ended up scratching it so just ate my snacks instead. I always take plenty of snacks so just made do with them.

    Did a bike and hike up in Scotland many years ago, met a lad on the last night who convinced me the route he was taking was better than my planned route, good thing being we'd finish at his car so he could drop me off back at my car.

    Got back to my car, saw the bike rack and realised i'd forgotten the bike :mad:
    Even worse the reason i'd biked the first bit was it was around 30 miles of boring flat riding.

    Option #1 spend the next day hiking 30 miles and riding back 30 miles, i'd have to call in sick for work as i was due back the next day.
    Option #2 drive my estate car on roads that most 4x4's would struggle with to pick the bike up.

    As it was a company car i went with option #2 :whistling:

    Still, green laneing on remote lanes with pot holes big enough to swallow a whole wheel but filled with rain so couldn't estimate the depth, in a car completely unsuited to off-road terrain at night was fairly entertaining

    - and carried ???g less weight than usual ;):D

    Just go caveman and use your paws - no way I'd have foregone the steak - having carried it :cool:

    - you don't drink out of your pan ??? :confused::p;)

    Less said the better - some folks are so careless :D

    Did contemplate both these as well but in end I was knackered anyway so just laid down and relaxed with some Pepperami's Pork Scratchings and cereal bars instead, no comparison but filled the hole :D

    Forgot my stove burner last week! Packed it then unpacked it while I rearranged my brew kit & forgot to put it back in. Fortunately one of the lads I was backpacking with had a spare one back at the car. so a 3 mile walk to our 1st nights pitched turned into a 9 mile walk for me. Compensation was the clear night sky.
