Re: Dales Divide: My Plan

Summat tells me the end of the BB pole isn't designed for flimsy tarp designs (although I have no clue if it is flimsy... I definitely know my knowhow is)... Stick something over the end - rubber off a walking stick, half a rubber ball or just your glove. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4Rut8qH9Fsc/XhXU...

Shaf, get the thing raised off the floor so some air can circulate. It'll also make the thing more stable ... if you wanted a tent you should have bought a tent. :wink: :lol: 3 years and experimenting. During which I got rid of the (non bikepacking) Alpkit Ordos. You're right though. I just thought...

Thanks will have a look. Its some trkrtro levers which he's sayibg is hurting his hands (gone from an Isla to be fair so I suppose the build quality size ratio isn't gonna be on par). Might just need a new cable etc etc to make it all a bit smoother :smile:

Re: Hydration reservoirs...

I have a Geiggerig (spelling?) which I've had for many years. Lots and lots of use, and has been solid. The top opens completely so you can turn it inside out to clean it (which I rarely do since I keep it in the freezer). Made by Hydrapak I think. The original bite valve split after a year or two,...

Is the emergency BAM rules over now??

Are we back on standard BAM2020...

Just wondering and I understand that some people were always on the standard BAM approach (and no offence to them and am sure they assessed the situation themselves) now??

I would suggest Scotland but I recently found out from the illustrious BoJo that it has no border :lol:

Shaf, be aware that these lights are really not so good on the road. The beam is very flood and you'll blind car drivers.
