My new toy

My birthday present arrived this morning and although it’s not been properly field tested yet, I’m very impressed with it. It’s wonderfully light and tiny and fits easily into one of the hip belt pockets in my rucksack.

My new toyI’ll be taking it with me on Saturday, when Rob and I are due to be going up Snowdon, via Crib Goch, so expect plenty of wind speed statistics along the route πŸ˜‰

You watch, there’ll be not a breath of wind now for weeks – just my bloody luck!

It could probably do with a little cloth case to keep the thing clean and free of grit and stuff, so maybe I’ll have to keep my eyes open for one of them now.

    I have a plastic sleeve for it, which keeps it mostly dry. It has got wet before and the display goes off when that happens, but it does come back once it’s dry. Thanks for the offer, but I don’t think a sock would keep it dry πŸ™‚

    Looks like an iPod sock (for the nano), would suit that a treat.
    I might have one kicking around somewhere, I’ll have a look and let you know, unless you’ve already sorted it.

    Rob’s dead, baby…. Rob’s dead πŸ™‚

    I got so used to walking with Rob that I tend to slip his name in here and there by accident. I did of course mean Tex, who is very much alive and kicking!
