They generally don't attend break-ins here anymore let alone have the man-power to head out into the countryside as someone has put a tent up.

Re: Bob's First Bivvy

I use a sleeping bag liner instead of baselayer to kip in. I have some super skimpy bed shorts (lightweight running shorts) and a down jacket for if it gets cold. The liner packs down better than a baselayer and feels to me to be a bit warmer all round.

As long as it doesn't involve the bridleway from Fernworthy Woods I am in That’s nothing. You should try some of the ones on the southern fen. Princetown to Avon reservoir via Naker’s Hill for example , that’d get you swearing :lol: I've walked some of it. Definitely not on the list. Next weekend (...

Re: Bikepacking Food & Snacks

Hang on where do you get corned beef in packets? Literally every shop ever Dave. It worries me you've not seen this. In with the pre sliced meats I was thinking of Spam which you can buy in plastic packets in the USA on the shelf not in the refrigerator. Not fresh as I think you are all pointing to.
