    Well not something I've bought but been gifted.

    It needs a lot of work to get it working but will be worth it I'm sure.

    201k with trunk case and accessories. Like I said needs some work.

    So @Dave V , when does collecting become hoarding? ;)

    Ahh but this means he can have one up north and one down south - it's allowed ;).
    And besides he's renovating it and giving it another life - all good IMO. :D

    Not quite 'made today' but just got around to making a bag for them.
    6 Snow flukes for the Saor, 150mm * 75mm of 0.5mm thick titanium with 1.5mm dyneema cords (yellow = anchor line & orange retrieval), weight is around 28g each (193g all up with cord & bag) so less than an MSR Blizzard & a lot more holding power.

    Still musing of the best way of attaching the guy lines to the anchor lines, initially was toying with the idea of small alloy carabiners but since they fail at 35 - 40kg & I was looking to have 3 lines to one anchor I've now dismissed the idea, was looking for something without knots & that wouldn't come apart easily when setting up. Was thinking of giving these guy adjusters a go deployed similar to Tarp Worms, 4.5g each so about the same as a biner but should be a lot stronger.

    Now I just need to wait for winter to return.

    I thought I'd kicked the habit, but after seeing @Mole 'using' and the boredom of lockdown I thought I would give Meths another 'crack'. (just to pee @gixer off) After grilling @Mole for the best 'supplier' and 'gear', I have purchased a Ti-tri with Kojin stove (i already have the 12-10) designed for my 600ml Evernew. This should fit with a tweak my 900 and 1100 Toakes as the diameters are the same. This is currently sitting in a bonded warehouse somewhere in the UK whilst UPS and HMG are rubbing their hands together at the duty payable.
    @Mole also put me onto a cocktail of Esbit with a drizzle of Meths. I'll have to do some testing with the Gram Cracker and the Esbit Ti trianglar.

    Gateway drugs...

    For the other pots, one of these should be OK for the Kojin

    Sorry posted in the wrong thread. Thanks @Mole, the pot stands just what I was looking for.

    I think anyone outside this forum might think this a veiled reference to a Melbourne 'vip ticket'. (Laughing emoji)
    I can see someone looking up 'kojin' and 'ti tri' and being so disappointed.

    I don't want it said that i'm not supportive of my mates (even when they make terrible decisions :whistling:)

    So to support your transition from gas to alcohol please find attached a vid you can download to your phone while boiling a thimble full of water

    Not sure if you'll get a chance to watch the entire video before your water boils, but it'll be more interesting than watching the water and playing the "was that a bubble?, i'm sure it's start boiling" game and dealing with the disappointment

    One of the nicest parts of the last Kirk Fell meet was the group that gathered to cook together.
    We had a right good natter whilst waiting for the water to boil ……
