I have that peggy peg awning tie down kit and it works well. The only thing I have of theirs that is poor is the ground sheet pegs.

 

I bought mine from the Mirror Guard man at a show. He now appears to be selling something called Ezipeg instead and they have a similar kit.

Thanks David,

 

I should have said that I’ve already Iordered another pack via Amazon but the Peggy Peg website has this - which could be useful. The base bit is pegged in and the awning leg slots in with 2 sliders covering it. So easy to unclimbed and put away. 

 

 

And a couple of other interesting things if you go back a page.

Re: Binoculars

I have this 1943 pair that I bought from a junk shop 40+ years ago. They are very clear but are heavy  and so I have a lighter smaller pair in the van (Olympus 8x21).

Best I ever tried were 7x42 made by Leica which cost a few grand. Hence my second hand Carl Zeus 8x32 (East German so cheapest) will continue to suit me. Excellent for reading signposts in the evening, not too heavy or wobbly.

I suppose it all depends on whether your hobby is spotting the birds on the beach or those in the hedgerows. 

I dug out my almost forgotten about Silver Crest tripod to steady mine, but it needs an adapter to mount things. I wonder where that went? 

And thanks, Tim. I didn’t expect such a response, but thinking about it, maybe a break from worrying about the  pandemic. 

For that we can only wait for the Countdown to Rolling Down the Lockdown. 

Until then, take care. Stay safe! Wherever you are.
