    Good for you Dwight :) The first of many! Drunk all the ginger-beer cocktails I could think of, invented a few, and then dispensed with the ginger-beer! :D :thumbsup:

    Back in 1982, I was a Youth Worker, with a modest expense account of £100 a year. Since I took kids hiking, camping, and climbing, and taught them navigation, among other things, I thought that the purchase of a compass was a reasonable investment :) When I bought this Silva Type 4, I never expected that I'd still be using it all these years later. I remember looking at that cheap plastic case, and thinking it'd last about 5 minutes. Yet, decades later, after a great deal of use, I still have the original case and instructions, and I am still relying on this relatively simple compass to get me home :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks chaps for your comments.:thumbsup: However, I think I may, yet again, of been talking pants.:) I just so happened to have my twin blade and my Hartshead together and thought I'd compare.
    And what do you know. My Hartshead is both thicker and heavier than my twin-blade.:)

    Thanks Rachel. I'll let you test and I'll do the waiting and seeing. :D

    Aye. I've even got wood pigeons that have learnt how to hang off the bird feeder. :cool: That's a great pouch and compass and knife shot there.:thumbsup:

    So what patina does peanut butter give??

    Out...of...Spam...?? :eek::eek: We've a word for that round where I live. It's called 'apocolypse'...:D


    Is that your military issue compass? (Is it the Bremer??) Looks very similar.

    I don't think anyone will be able to afford to drink ale in Britain in 2047... :rolleyes:


    Wow! Learn something new every day.:thumbsup:

    Lovely ebony there. :thumbsup:

    Crikey! Your going to need a sheep dog to keep all them in line. :thumbsup:

    Sorry folks I think I've missed a few quotes, but I'm having trouble with B.F. I keep getting 'Error 525 SSL Handshake Failed' messages. Yesterday was impossible, today much improved but it's making writing on here a chore.

    This wasn't today, but it's how I've ended the evening.

    Thank you, Guys. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

    I'm glad you enjoyed it, and that you didn't mind my featuring you in my bit of musing on the future.

    And, wow, that is spooky! Not sure what to make of that, so we'll just chalk it up to good ol' coincidence. :)

    I hope you enjoyed the Mules and had a good evening. :thumbsup:

    Now, that would be a dystopian future for sure. Let's hope that doesn't come to pass.

    I'm loving these photos of compasses and lambsfoot knives. Mind if I join in the fun?

    @cigarrodog this book is where I learned the basics, which is about all I know. It's been sitting dormant on my bookshelf for maybe 15 years. I really should refresh my memory and maybe learn something new while I'm at it. It's quite fun stuff.

    I'll find out!
    Well, I usually have some on hand. Never out of Tabasco sauce, though. Or coffee. Staples. Going to buy Spam tomorrow. :)

    Update: guess I'm NOT out!

    Just an excellent flock of lambs, OG. I understand with your feeling about the pace of this thread and trying to keep up. I just do what I can when I can and live with it.:thumbsup:
    That we have. There have been more clients and more dogs. Competitions are at their height and the hunting season is rapidly approaching. It's all good, I'm glad for the trainer.
    Ashes to ashes, butts to butts...well something like that, none the less, another great photo!
    Maps and compass are essential parts of my pack when hunting.
