  1. Is there any truth that the butress/root area on a Walnut is the most valuable part? I was told this many moons ago when I first started out...gun stocks, Jaguar dash boards etc all made out of this mythical subterranean woody gold !!!! I've always struggled with the concept but I climb them and don't know anything about milling etc
  2. Bloody hell those are gorgeous. Where abouts are you?
  3. Bloody awful. Going to make for a beautiful patch of bare green once over. as well...and who picks up all the spent burnt metal afterwards at tax payers expense?
  4. If you can split it !!! Bloody stuff. I give it to my mates who think they're a bit hench ....!![emoji12]
  5. My friend used to put a handful of Laurel leaves in a jam jar with a bumble bee, and then when it went woozy he attached cotton to it and had his very own angry furry self powered stripey kite.
  6. Here is a man very much at the top of his game. Nice video, lovely cuts and subtle prune. Nice action Darrin 🤟🏻 (I really need to practice that SRT ascent shiz [emoji1391]‍♂️)
  7. Deffo Ants. Theres quite a few fields here in Warwickshire that have them. The badgers love to dig them up and my feet seem helpless to avoid tripping over them on an all too often basis.
  8. I'm more questioning of your tiny pink opened toed slipper bottom right of this shot....cheeky
  9. Could anyone please tell me what the b’jesus is going on here ? Last time I checked, Alder don’t have red flowers in August !!! Baffled. Some sort of fasciation perhaps ? .
  10. Hmmmm yes comfort is a luxury banished from ones mind when driving Landrovers and yes they are unreliable, but they’re reliably unreliable which almost makes them nearly reliable ....ish. Personally, I would weep long and hard if mine were to cease service or get pinched. I guess you either love the whole simplicity and classic nature of the design or you go the more conventional and slightly easier route of other alternative slightly blander marques ? No right answer, we’re all different aye [emoji1303]
  11. Or spray it with Buzz Weld CIO and spray the inside with Buzzweld cavity wax. If you’ve not checked out their paint already do so. It seems good shiz although I’m only 6 months in on a chassis coated in CIO (chassis in one ) It seems pretty tough thus far but verrrrrrry early days aye ??! 🤞🏻
  12. Ah I get it now. Does it not mean a lot of long tail length tying those half hitched whereas the spider sling you’re just whipping the krab end around one end of your limb and choking it and the doing a quick knot of choice around t’other with the spider leg sling already prussiked on your rigging rope? You’ve got 1 x no knot (krab end) and 1 times short tail quick knot (spider leg) , and you’re not having to re-tie your Prussik each time (spider leg already prussiked) ? Seems quicker by some margin unless I’ve misinterpreted your method for which I apologise if I have done [emoji1303][emoji2]
  13. I’ve got to admit Gaz, I’m a tad disappointed that we’re not being treated to more ‘action shots’ of your worldly arboricultural high security adventures instead of a line of Wellies with no evidence of recent work undertaken !! Don’t be shy Gazbot, show us your shiz babes Kind regards Lord Lucan
