Long time ago I was chatting with a mate called Geoff who commented to me that he thought it strange how so many people into bushcraft all seem to think of or follow certain trends all at once ........... unconsciously many of us seem to be drawn to the same thing - for example at the moment Roycroft packs and blankets ............ Geoff's thoughts were that it was like there was a big bubble of ideas floating in space from which people grasp the same ideas at the same time - at the time I did him a great dis-service by doubting him but now I think he was right (so sorry big Geoff)
Anyway the reason for my belated apology is that I, like DC and Mors among others, have started exploring the Roycroft Pack as an alternative to the standard brand name packs in popular use (more on this to come)
As a part of this and a continuation of the theme I have already been following aka the multi uses of a blanket as a pertinent bushcraft item I of course wanted a "genuine" blanket aka a Hudson bay 4 point blanket so I could be like a real mountain man ............ well look what I managed to snag on evil bay
Result! And at a very good price too .............
