    Hi Folks and a happy New Year to all.

    I have joined to inspire my efforts to get out a lot more in 2017. I live on the edge of the Peak District and need to make better use of it. Have had slow-burning interest in UL backpacking for a while. Was given a gift voucher this holiday for some sessions with a local seamstress to get things moving on the MYOG front and kick start the required changes.

    I have lots of happy memories (before life interrupted) of being near the cutting edge of backpacking - walking around in a sodden ventile anorak lugging my bit of a classic canvas Vango Force Ten, wearing stiff leather soled boots coated in dubbing and looking forward to a brew after priming my optimus stove.

    It's time to update, upgrade and get back to the future :thumbsup:

    "I have lots of happy memories (before life interrupted)"

    A divorce and exonerating ownership of children can sort that... :thumbsup:
