Looks like you had a great time out there.  I'm really starting to love my new hammock as well. Seconds to set it up but hours of laying about :D

Very nice .. I've been thinking about one for a while but already have too many kitchen gadgets that need to go first to make room lol but really it would be useful.  We tend to buy big packages of meat and most go into the freezer so this would be perfect. #ns

I've looked at the snugpack stuff but never bit the bullet to get any ... but I have followed them on twitter as well as liked on facebook.  They certainly do seem to be a decent enough company.  Hope I get the chance to find out :P #ns

A great spot near that lake to pitch a hammock and make a brew! #ns

Glad I found the setting for the reply button to be visible :D   I've just bought the ENO Singlenest Hammock (wish I bought the double now), and a set of straps, it's great for day walks. Really teaks no more then 5 mins to setup and the entire thing weighs less then 1kg and packs up as small as that stove you took out.  Very nice to just lay on look up at the canopy and chill'n out.

Hi Robert, that also looks like a vintage one. And OMG it is tempting to get it. Colors on the tin are different but the image is the same. I just might have to order that. Hahaha. I never thought of looking that up. Stupid!! Thank you very much for the link. Means a lot to me! Have a great day and weekend Robert. A friend Mark.

Matt, I am appalled by a statement you made in the video ... "It's just cornbread" ... Mate, IT'S CORNBREAD!!!!  There isn't many other kinds of breads/biscuits that beat cornbread LOL I like the idea of making a sort of oven to cook it in.  I'd seen something similar done and I had good success with my Snowpeak 700 cup .. a couple of small pebbles in the bottom and one of those silicon muffin cups, put the mix in the muffin cup, lid on the pot and the pebbles keep it off the direct fire .. perfect.   Nice tip on the bit of olive oil to keep it from sticking too.  Man, subscribing to your channel is gonna cause me to do more cooking LOL

Introduction
Hobbies include losing weight, learning bushcraft, photography and not often but also a radio ham (M1XZG).  My current interests are trying to get outdoors and learn bushcraft.  I really envy those that have good size woods and even hills around them.  Cambridgeshire is flat and really not very exciting when it comes the landscape.

40<something>, Gàidhlig learner also speak a little Mandarin Chinese and some German, Oh and English ain't bad either.

My kids love coming here, there's so much more to do than most indoor play centres. They really love the indoor climbing wall and the Sky Rider. I don't think there's anything they don't like to be honest. I only give it 4 stars because I think the prices for the food is a little high, it's decent enough food, but just a touch high really. But a great place to take the kids if you wanna let them run wild for a few hours. During busy times they do have a 2hr play limit, but that's normal for these sorts of places.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars here .. These guys were awesome at getting my Samsung Galaxy S4 LCD screen replaced. I dropped the phone off and left for a coffee and it was ready before I finished the coffee. After the appalling service I'd received from a random online "repair shop" which completely failed to do any repair on my phone in 2 weeks, these guys put everything right in just 20 minutes! Their price was what I'd expected and being a Samsung Authorized Repair Centre I knew I could trust them to do a good job, but they did a great job! If you need a screen replaced and you're local enough to swing in and drop you phone off, then do it. Forget those guys online where you send you phone away for days or even weeks!!! Thanks very much guys!!!

I haven't dealt with Urmston Computers, but rather Steve Goossens new company, *Nationwide Repair Centre* in it's new location of New Hill, High Peak. I can say I would NOT recommend this company to anyone, or any company that Steve has anything to do with. I sent my Samsung Galaxy S4 in for repairs and after 2 weeks I finally got my phone back in exactly the same condition as it was in when I sent it to him. I sent him photos from today and from the day it broke, his response was: "These pictures could have been taken at any time so i can not accept these as proof." The screen is broken in the same place. I demanded a refund but was told he won't give refunds and I could send the phone back to him to look at. NO CHANCE! I was also told that if I tried to get a refund via my credit card company he would report the phone stolen and have it blacklisted. When I opened a dispute with PayPal over no contact in more than a week I was threatened if I didn't close the dispute I wouldn't get my phone back and if I didn't pay he would sell the phone after 3 months. I am glad that I have my phone back in my hands and will have it fixed at an authorized Samsung repair shop. I urge ANYONE that needs their Samsung repaired to call Samsung or use one of their authorized shops. They're all cheaper than this guy and 3 of them that I spoke too said they will replace the screen while I wait. I wish I could give less then 1 star as a warning ..
