    That would just be insane :-)

    I lashed out on some miendl Bhutan boots a little while back. I've never spent that kind of cash on boots before, but I've just spent a week in Scotland and they've been incredible. up mountains, in boggy marshes, coastal, forest, you name it . I was in them up to 15 hours a day and my feet were not tired, sore, not even damp. I reckon they've earned their keep already.

    The army had me playing with radios, and since then I have been working with them, and most likely will again if I get the kind of work I am after once my degree is in place.
    And when I participated in that SAR excercise the other day, I also handle comms. That was probably like an old circus horse smelling saw dust, as now I have ordered a couple of cheap chinese VHF/UHF dual band radios, and enlisted in a HAM course to get a licence so that I can TX legally with them. Plenty of repeaters to trigger in the area. I could always only use them on licence free frequencies, but that would be boring, asthats where all the toy radios are are, so I imagine they are full of kids..

    Anyway, it's been 25 years since I went trough the theory in the army, so nice with a refresh :-)
