Nice to see a tool kit with a heavy percentage of hammers to other tools.

Lovely pics mate!
Looks like a great time away with the family, best of both worlds. Hows the little one doing these days?

yip, it's a 29er rob, pretty pleased how well it climbed on rocky ground. to be total unashamed and modern, first outings with a dropper seatpost too :oops: wonderful thing, it's like another gear :shock: really helped keep the flow on the trails

the trails were very dry and the clouds were high for most of the week we were up. was really surprised how dry the ground is, I'm back up another few times across the spring, hopefully it stays so :) 8)

Mr P, it's is indeed, a classic wild camping spot if ever there was

Great to be away will the young one Jamie, she's at a great age, hope all's good with your clan up in the far flung north :P
