As a final year university student in Nottingham, I lived in Cycle Road right opposite the Raleigh factory, which is now long gone.

Just received my new backpack. An Osprey Rook 50. I've been looking for an Osprey for some time and a deal came up on this new pack that was too good to refuse. Need to plan a hike and camp now...

Some Smidge (as per recent thread) and some aluminium tent pegs to replace two that I broke.
Too little, too late, too bad......

Last Thursday, the hottest day ever, I bought waterproof trousers and wellies.
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where

I bought Berghaus Stormcloud Overtrousers and the Mountain Equipment Zeno. Haven't tried the overtrousers in the rain yet but I'm thrilled with the Zeno - finally a waterproof that I don't overheat in!

That lawn needs a trim!  Still, it provides an authentic environment to display the tent. Hope you get to enjoy it soon.

Looks rather like my vintage Robert Saunders Jetpacker!

Managed to pick up a Marmot Precip Eco jacket for 48. Just been out for a wander, hoping for some rain to try it out, but amazingly, no luck!

The Berghaus Stormcloud trousers were amazing very impressed they kept me dry through nearly 8 hours of almost constant rain and I didn't overheat or get sweaty.

Normal people sized (if you can call XXL normal) technical clothing is indeed far superior to that available in fat man sizes.

Two polyester baselayers from Mountain Warehouse in Aviemore - 7.99 & 9.99.

Rather cheaper than the 25-35 offerings in the more upmarket shops, and I'm sure that they will do the job just the same.

I've used these "Isocool" base layers from Mountain Warehouse a few times now, including for running. Recommended.
