  1. Thanks for all your replies lads, some encouraging thoughts in them , but years of walking Essex sticky clay ground I think has taken its toll from toes to hips n spine. I will be moving my kit on and with so much of it taking up cupboard and shed space (she says) I will make up a small kit (hopefully) for a local youngster to take my place.
  2. Have done that so many times to no avail. its the walking , lower back down ,
  3. At 73 and with arthritis painfully kicking in its time for me to call it a day, no longer can I carry the kit or even walk the margins or walk the fields. Ive made good friends and had some great times and will miss it, but I will always do my morning round of reading about your pigeon shooting exploit's and banter so keep it coming. P.S. mrs is happy to have room to spread her things around after I move the guns and shooting kit on. Good shooting and be safe
  4. had a fuel pipe whipped off once, fortunately was a flexie section so an easy on site re fit.
  5. I have made much in GRP over 40 years in the GRP moulding trade and many roof coverings ,never have I had to call back on any , way to go if applied properly and safely.
  6. I have similar with an ally frame, with shoulder strap and bag underneath, a tads on the low sidefor me but the weight on long walks is an advantage.
  7. Being an ole **** Im finding it more and more difficult to carry the gear now with a dodgy back and as most of my shooting grounds are no vehicles and walk only thought I would make a trolley. Its 12 volt electric golf trolley based, barrel holdall with 14 inch puncture proof wheels/tyres, fold down handle fitted with a variable, speed controller, the wheels were originally plastic rubber edge ,too small and weak in my mind to take the sort pf punishment on shooting farms in my opinion I was going to use the full barrel but wanted the option to have my kit in a rucksack just in case of real sticky grounds ditches, etc and the need to walk rough ground with the rucksack and leave the trolley in the car or hedgerow for collection on the way back. Near finished and tried the kit load, a little more fettling and probably finished, then needing field testing . With the trolley and kit all together its pretty weighty for me to handle Im thinking but we will see.
  8. Welcome to PW, just watch for the old nutters on here of which I'm proud to be one , I have family in Hythe so know the area a little, crack a rod out now and then around the beaches in that area.
  9. Both of the guitars you linked are respectable makes I would say whichever one is the most comfortable to hold for you, Fender is probably the most known make, I had one of their electro acoustics up till recently , take someone with you with guitar knowledge to a music shop with those in stock and handle and get a feel for both.
  10. Your links dont work, I would favour an elctro acoustic semi full bodied , can play quietly without an amplifier to keep neighbours and mrs happy, but one that feels like it fits you and is comfortable to hold/play.
  11. As advised wise get it set professionally, I used to play professionally and a well set guitar action makes for a more comfortable playing action that is much better for learning. Always set my own action etc on my guitars to my own taste and playing style, but now at my age rust has set in my fingers as well as my brain 😞
  12. If your anywhere near me in SWF your welcome to check out my Infinity.
  13. I use long garden bamboo canes with a length of red and white hazard ribbon tied to each cane, the type you see on roadworks etc. Cheap , light, easy to carry and flap around nicely even in a light breeze, just place them where you want to keep them pigeons away.
  14. Had it for years from my teens onward to into the 40s. not through what you may be thinking at that age but playing too much on badly set guitars . Used to strap it up when not playing and being very conscious and careful of it when having to work play etc . also had cortisone injections in the wrist that seemed to help relieve the pain somewhat, took a long time to fade but no repeat of it.
