Re: A Beginner's Dreams

I actually bike to work most days I can :] so I hope that counts. As for the rest of your advice, I thank you and I shall see what I can do to follow through. There are some dietary restrictions I have to keep in mind when it comes to the cooking, but we'll see! I have a lot I can build on, so than...

Re: Existence of the Slipjoint?

Well I did so and my wife laughed and said "I've already ordered it for you." She's a keeper. I'm very excited for it to come in. I'm glad you were able to find a more historically sympathetic version that was to your liking! While I'm a firm advocate for getting out there in whatever gea...

Re: Existence of the Slipjoint?

Late to the party as usual. None of these two are slipjoints but if your new cheap option doesn't work out or you decide you want to upgrade to something a but more historical then Tod makes a few lovely little folders. I have one of his brass ones and it's just right. https://todcutler.com/collecti...

Re: A Beginner's Dreams

Welcome to the forums Wraith (funny name for a ranger that) Some excellent suggestions above and I have one more to suggest if you're open to it. I suggest it having no idea of where you're at in this regard but I do think its a very important and often neglected aspect of what we do. If you aren't ...

Re: "The Hunt fo Gollum" (2026)

Cheers mate, like I said it wasn't your particular statement. I'd have found a comment on conflict in Europe or the Middle East just as discombobulating here on the forums. That having been said I do find it funny when folks put Jasksons works up on a pedestal. There's so much in the LoTR trilogy wh...

Re: My hard kit for long treks (update)

Your kit is always good to see Vins. Have you made the haversack waterproof in any way? I'd be a bit concerned with it on the back of your bag that any shower may damage the dry food within.

I think we can all agree that Rings of Power was drivel without bringing modern politics onto the forums :mrgreen: For my part I love that the MERF is one of few places I can come which is free of ALL that rubbish, a place that exists solely for enjoyment of Middle Earth by like minded individuals. ...

Welcome to the forums Ionwë

Things seem to have been a bit slow here the past few months but don't let that dissuade you from starting or joining any conversations! It's heading into nicer weather in my part of the world so hopefully theres some outings soon.

Re: Lanolin question

Not sure on your side of the pond but there is a company here called woolube (classy I know) who do all kinds of lanolin from spray bottles through to thick grease. Depending on how heavy duty you want to go they would have a product it's just a matter of availability. https://woolube.com.au/product...
