Play Things

My little boy has invaded my shed as I attempt to work. He was sat on the floor playing his iPad on full volume but now he’s looking at my ‘stuff’ on the walls.

“Can we swap Lego R2D2’s?” He asks.
“No” I say.
“Why” He asks.
“Because yours is all scratched and battered and mine is looked after.”
“Why?”

Good question. Makes me think. I feel like the dad in the lego movie. Not playing with play things.

The EKA Masur Birch folding bushcraft knife.

Been using this knife continuously these last few days camping. For everything from food preparation to making kindling.

It has a 3” Sandvik 12C27 blade that’s around 2mm thick.

Including the handle it’s about 7” long but only weighs 60g (1.8oz). 

I wasn’t hunting, fishing or prepping game so a folding blade was fine.

Better than fine, as it is so well made, it’s a pleasure to use.

Seconds after I stopped recording i spilled the whole beer on the camera. I turned it off, upside down and ran it under the hand drier for a few minutes.

Still works. :)

First shot from the Legria Mini X. Camera was set to 24mbs mp4. Audio set to focus on speech. 

I guess that’s a big fat No! From Sky Broadband then.

Brewing coffee in the woods.

My lightest cookset consists of the Vargo Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove, the MSR Titan Titanium kettle and the GSI Ultralight Java Drip. 

The Kuksa (carved cup) is my luxury item ;)

Microadventures - A book review.

image

I didn’t want to like Alastair’s book ‘Microadventures’. Purely for selfish reasons. The moment I saw it I was jealous and wished I’d written it. I’m a huge fan of adventure in all shapes and sizes and spent many years throwing myself into them. 

Now-a-days it’s all about grabbing those micro-moments. Making the most of a couple of days precious free time and feeling alive, invigorated and refreshed by nature or just getting some use out of equipment you bought online after a bottle of wine and a reminiscing conversation.

The last few years has seen the Micro-Adventure movement really take off. From camping in the garden to hitchhiking a coastal route. The online conversations I have seen have been championed and curated by Alastair Humphreys. His passion, enthusiasm and attention to detail has been the rallying cry as he has curated and connected, documented and shared.

This collected knowledge, this antidote to modern life has been wonderfully refined and condensed into an amazing book packed with great stories and stunning images. A catalyst for simply getting out and discovering yourself. Heading out in a new direction with a small bag containing all you need to explore, eat and sleep under the stars. 

Microadventures is about nurturing imagination and attitude over saving for a plane ticket to a far off land. Buy this book and you will never be able to make the excuse of not having time for adventure.

A wonderful book, so well produced, well laid out and utterly inspiring from cover to cover.

I gave it an easy five stars.

2097 days ago I blogged about my new radio.  It’s been used every day since. On better days than this it’s powered by the sun.

At £70 for about 10,000 hours so far, the device has cost me less than a penny/hour. Not sure how much of that has been solar powered but that figure is dropping daily.

So.. Built to last?

So far so good.
