Re: Who Owns England?

I recall that one of the potential issues with shooting moors is land drainage. I know there's calls to fill in the drainage ditches and allow them to revert back to upland bog - something which should have a positive impact on flooding. I believe Hebden was one of the places mentioned? There’s loa...

Testing the water really, I'm fairly sure this will be for sale but not 100% yet. Well thought out, designed and all that but not really doing it for me and the TD will not be anytime soon for me.

Oi! Team Fitz is an elite setup with only one member. Some of them schools have 1200 kids.

Also I’m only on there as I set up the registration forms for them and tested it with my own details. Then forgot :roll:

Re: Refilling gas cannisters

What are the donor cartridges? Those tall thin ones that look a bit like standard aerosol cans?

Are they recyclable?

Sounds interesting but I’m not keen to generate more landfill for the sake of saving a few quid.

Screw top pans...

I just spotted an advert for the Vargo bot a pricey screw top pan. Sounds like a good idea and something which is genuinely useful.

A quick search hasn’t found any, erm, ahem, replica or tribute versions.

Does anyone know of something similar. Other metals would be ok too

Good luck with them. I had to cut one of the keyed ones off as the mechanism had broken and know of two combination ones that have failed.

I’ve used Bing and toggled between is and Ariel.

I use a similar system but I am a cold sleeper. Bobs setup would be good down to 0 for me. My 4season setup would need to be warmer than that.
