    Yup, that’s where I was going with this. I don’t use poles, I think them a bit odd. I carry a set of Exped Quads when leading groups so that I have something to offer others. I always carried the Golite pole for the SL3.

    So I was just pondering a set of carbon poles for a dual purpose.

    I shall stop pondering now.

    Ta very much, Dids, :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I’d read that. Ta, bud.

    See above ^^^ I’ll have a pole methinks. None of this Nancy-boy mincing about with walking sticks nonsense.

    :biggrin:

    I was once told told to carry poles for my Hex as the 300g pole is too heavy :laugh: yet poles are heavier and a stupidly priced :thumbsdown::laugh:...

    Seems fair. Everything is society’s fault, I hold no responsibility for my actions, be they positive or negative. I feel a need to have a little sit down in the full lotus position and body-scan so that I can visualise the full benefit that some new silnylon will bring to my existence.


    Ooooommmmmmmm :wacky:

    So... once I’ve fired my Raku pottery in the camp fire...

    What’s all this inner business - it’s a bit of a pfaff sorting it out innit? Wet knees anorl <grumbles>

    Any hints tips and observations would be gratefully received (other than, take something to kneel on)

    Raku was developed for the Japanese Tea Ceremony. It was a quick method of firing which is why the glaze has its distinctive cracks.

    Spinning wheel... I bet there’s an ultralight spinning wheel. Loads of wool hanging about on the barbed wire fences.

    There must be titanium knitting needles?

    If the night turns chilly >WHOooosh< before you know it, you could knock up a Fairisle sweater and a pair of mittens.
