From when? This week, this year?
From when we started discussing it - just as a suggestion.

ABC, for those with hairs on their chest experience, stands for Annapurna Base Camp.

Re: Sleeping clothes/ PJ's?

In winter I use thermal undies. Good for going out for a piddle.
Other times a silk liner and running shorts. I am always conscious of being disturbed during the night, so always like something on.

Re: 3491 ft bivvy

There are a few of us on here who have biked in Nepal. So when the heights get over 4000m we can start the competition.

Thanks for that.

Pay Pal

It seems that I have a P pal account that I used once 15 years ago. I typed in my old email and the account came up with all my old and present addresses listed and my latest bank card number. A bit creepy and a bit too easy to access and start using. I'm a bit worried about the security with this. ...

I'm very close to Worthing (Angmering) and can probably help you with postage & costs if it would help to sell your stuff Rasta
Thanks for the offer. There is a Hermes pick up near me, so postage is not a problem. It is just sorting out receiving payment. But thanks again.
