Over the last couple of weeks one has been on a bit of a spending spree. The walking Holiday at Hadrians wall fund has now been spent on preordering a Windlilly turbine for camping, Not that I can see any of that happening this year now, I have made several alterations to plans only to have the 2020 spanner thrown in the works in one form or another. It is beginning to look like a couple of nights on Dartmoor after dropping of Christmas presents at the moment.
Also bought is a new sea fishing rod/reel and boxseat with backrest. For all the fishermen out there, you will know the ‘luxury’ of a backrest on a cold windy day. Or the pleasure of one on a still sea with no bites, chilling with a cuppa and a view. Though the next one is looking more to a winter fishing session at the moment. Normally we would have been fishing for mackerel by now.
But at leat my sewing projects are coming along, strangely enough, these are also camping/walking projects – for my walking trailer that has yet to have its first journey with me since I got it a couple of years ago.
I got it second hand, and at a great bargain price. Due to the fact they are not popular here in England, If they are used at all. This one has been on a pilgrimage in Mexico with its previous owner, but has sat in the box with me. I cannot afford the accessories like the back support for carrying it on longer journeys, rather than the method of carrying it through streams it comes with. So I have sewn my own versions.
Will they work?
I have no idea?
But then I have no idea if the trailer and Spots K9 backpack combo will work together as one hopes, because of the – beep- spanner of 2020.
So it is prep, prep, prep for sometime….
