It’s occured to me that I haven’t said that much about it on here yet. Nothing to do with the definition , which includes “without seriousness of purpose; trivial or trifling”.
It’s probably more to do with me always looking for the next thing, rather than covering all the stuff I’ve been saying on the forums already. This winter sees a lot of the new, clothes and equipment. Through the winter I’ll be testing a new sleep system from the US that should offer an increase in temperature and breathability performance and a loss in weight. It hasn’t been used in UK conditions yet, so no pressure or worries there at all.
We’re using the CAMP Corsa and Corsa Nanotech axes as well, you can carry one of each and still be lighter than you would be with an ordinary walking axe. We’re looking at sub 400g eVent and ProShell jackets, the now familiar Kahtoolas, Icebug footwear of course and assorted wee bits and pieces, all of it inapropriate for winter according to current standards (in this country anyway). But not those standards of a few years ago. A good example of why this is the case is the quote “A week in politics is long time”.
So, aye I’ll be back on evangelical form before too long.
