Thanks Dittzy - sounds like a good option.
I might get around to trying it.

Impulse buy at Sports Direct North Shields. Two five litre dry bags @4.50 ea. Will always be useful.Probably could have got a lot cheaper off www. But they seemed  to be lonely all on their own.

Then headed off to the beach at Tynemouth for my daily 4 miles. It was actually harder than it may seem as I deliberately went up and down to the beaches as far as Whitley Bay at every opportunity. Knees now feeling it. Back to the Lincs. lowlands tomorrow.
Too little, too late, too bad......

Go discounting their waterproofs, guess the unusually hot weather has left them overstocked  :)

Asdas are currently selling compact and lightweight folding saws, similar in design to a Bahco Laplander.  If you are not familiar with the Bahco Laplander, it is one of the best saws to take with you on camping trips, anywhere you might need to cut wood to make a shelter or for firewood.  When folded it is just 7 1/2" long, almost pocket size, yet it can cut a 3" diameter tree trunk down in seconds.  It weighs just under 400g,  and it costs around 17.  The blade on the Asda version is noticeably thinner than a Laplander blade, although it is still quite stiff,  and I would say the teeth seem sharper too.  The thinner blade does make it noticeably lighter than a Laplander...It weighs just 212g, almost half the weight!  So why would I class the Asda version as a bargain?  Well, because it only costs 83 pence!!!

Mmm got one of those saw to do a bit of light pruning in the allotment. Teeth were out if set on first 2" branch and was blunt by the third.  Handle not too strong either.Twas a pity.
That sort of saw more suited to preppers, survivalists  and wannabe SAS folks. Most walkers that I know don't carry such equipment. We try to leave everything as we find it.
