Re: Folding bowls

Like this? :O3 https://doglab.com/collapsible-dog-bowl/ Blimey, that review is crazy. They tested 32 bowls and took over 80 hours doing it! If we say they took 83 hours, that is a staggering 151 minutes per bowl! What could they possibly spend 2 1/2 hours doing per small plastic collapsible bowl :-O

She could probably do with a scan, which currently are like hens teeth. While in this acute phase just keep on with the pain meds and gently mobilise within the pain threshold. The good news is that it will almost undoubtedly settle down, the bad news is that it may take up to 6-8 weeks, at which po...

Re: Any 3 person winter tent deals going...

I think the first task here is decide what you want! If you are after a bell-tent, which are really good, easy to put up and fun and roomy and you can stand up and put in a log burner etc etc then look for a bell tent. If you want a 3 person winter tent, then you will more likely get a lower profile...

Re: What's a decent but economical bell type tent?

Bell tents are quite expensive, but do last if looked after. Unfortunately the bargains are usually found at the end of the festival season when companies sell of dozens of glamping tents. A couple of these, cleverly pitched may be a sensibly priced alternative...... https://www.militarymart.co.uk/c...

Re: This weekends Virtual Winter Event - postponed

As others have suggested, the main thing is about reducing the risk of stretching the NHS beyond where it is now. Falling off of a bike on a bridleway 5 miles from a road will potentially involve all sorts of services, probably not ideal right now. I know that nothing is completely risk free, but a ...
