      Very interested in the Rush 72. Can you please let me know what it is like confort wise and also what it is like size wise. I would be wanting to fit a normal 4 season sleeping bag and overnight gear in one. Would it accomodate that?

      Many thanks

      hello, thank you for your generosity on the forums.

      as I said in the thread the medic pouch would be incredibly useful to me.

      I will endeavour to pass some of my unused gear on through the forums as thanks, not much bushcraft kit but sure I can find something!

      Hi James,

      I only found one place to hammock - near the picnic table at the top of the hill is a stand of conifers, I usually go in there, but TBH I usually bivvy bag these days as it means I can go to more places.

      Hi Simon, i hope you're well?

      I don't know if you remember but we met briefly around the fire at Middlewood. We got talking about our noble profession :o) and discovered we had a mutual friend in Keith Wilson (forrest of Burnley). I bumped into him and he offered me the use of Thievely Wood to bushcraft in, which i plan to do this weekend, with a couple of mates. The thing is, being a young wood, what is it like for hanging a hammock in? Can you recommend a particular part? Grd ref or GPS co-ords would be great, if poss :o)

      As an alternative i have been trying to contact the good people at Middlewood to check availability, but to no avail. Do you know if they shut down over winter? Or do you have a better line of communication that i could pursue?

      Kind regards

      James (Trunks)
