The Wild Welsh Wilderness

Having been away for work last week we had a fairly quiet weekend. I did some work in the garden and we headed out to Cross Foxes on Sunday for a Mother’s Day lunch – well, Morgan isn’t here to treat Anna, so I did instead. I of course went along for the meal too....

Speedy Broadband

We’ve been pretty happy with our broadband ever since we were one of the first households in Wales to get Fibre direct to the Property back in 2016. I still don’t know why we got it then, but at the time going from 1.5Mbps download speed to a 52Mbps download speed was quite a revelation....

Sunday Lunch at Libanus

I didn’t get out camping this weekend, so it was a fairly quiet affair at home. I did go for a quick surf-ski session on Saturday, but that didn’t end too well and I set the robot lawn mowers up after their ‘hibernation’ over the winter. They are out there now, happily mowing away for...

The Ultimate Cure for a Slippery Sleeping Pad – Simple Modification

I’m calling them my ‘Anti-slip Limpet Strips’. Maybe it’s just me, but I found that the combination of my Thermarest NeoAir XLite NXT sleeping pad and my Nordisk Telemark tent floor created something slipperier than a super-slippery oiled-up eel! It wasn’t a huge problem but it just wouldn’t stay where I put it. If I...

Machynlleth to Tre Ddol – Wild Camping

With a new rucksack to try out, and what looked like a break in the weather I decided to head off on a wild-camping adventure on Monday. I don’t officially work on Mondays or Tuesdays, but often end up doing so, especially if I’m at home. A couple of days in the hills would mean...
