Thanks buddy,Please also remember no nicknames
Done and nope, lesson to all, don't use forum names when sending signed for, what a chew @Diddi had trying to get his parcel
Over an hour on the phone to cancel a phone contract
"As you've been a loyal customer we can do you a really amazing deal" now you tell me!
After a polite battle with two indian peeps with heavy accents (and talking very fast) I convinced them that I do indeed want to cancel this contract (forever!). THREE are a PYTA. Anything to get money out if you.
Quick mat question: how not to slip off a thermarest? Silicon? Anti slip mat?
Blow it up less hard.
Finding it a nasty surprise how difficult it is to walk up a hill with lungs that still aren't working properly.
Its the slipperyness thats the problem, not the height.
Out of breath: you'll be fine, it just takes time.
I only just thought of this - so not sure it would work. But I wonder if bike puncture repair patches would work. Especially the more old fashioned plain rubber patches if you can still get them. I imagine the glue would stick OK and the patches are flexible so would stretch and fold as needed and maybe give just enough friction to stop slippage.
Might try it on my mat actually as I have the same issue.
Did anyone get the sportsshoes leaflet through the post this week, I've lost the extra 15% off code
@Taz38.... Dots of Silicone dots can help stop slipping. As many neat little dots of Silnet 'dabbed' onto the face of the mat as needed.
When you have a DM chat with Alan Hinkes on Twitter. .. not many people I admire but he’s one

Looks like @Shewie is being sponsored by base camp foods as well now
You competition winner you...
Yes, standby for lots of name dropping and gratuitous photos of hot wet stodge in a bag in all future trip reports.
Not really, just a £10 voucher for completing their survey
So I'm unfamiliar with how UK customs works, and it's a bit confusing, but.. does this mean I've dodged customs/tax duties?
Not likely. You'll probably have to pay before the item is released to you.
Darn - how lengthy is that process? Hoping not to have to deal with too much faff, meant to be leaving the country on Tuesdayyy.
At home it was super easy, would just get a call or email, and a direct link to pay any duties online, so it wouldn't hold things up more than a day, but British folk complain a lot more about complications with customs..
Ok, can anyone tell me why I might want a titanium comb?
Because you'll save 4g over my plastic 9g comb and scratch your sunburnt scalp? Because it's there?
$19 to save 4g - I could go for that - but it weighs 34g
Then you'll need another reason.
A real UL'er would just go for the buzz cut & forget the comb
It is for removing any tiny bits of titanium that may have lodged in your hair.
Get rid of the floss would also provide a good reason to buy a Black Rock down beany
