    Hi, mark. I'm very touched by your offer. That really is a wonderful gesture

    Unfortunatley I live just outside of Manchester, so Durham would be a little far for me to call on you. But seriously, thanks you so very much for your offer. I did want to PM you and thank you properly, but it seems you have the service disabled.

    And Trevor, I'm touched too that you miss my posts, but as I said in the PM I just sent you, my outdoors head has deserted me for the time being. I'm sure it'll come back, though

    Not yet mentioned - Rhododendron bushes produce excellent walking sticks. Easily available, grow amazingly straight, very strong and supporting yet pliable and un-likely to break when under pressure... and they also have a bulbous end which sits nicely in the hand.

    Haven't used since I was a kid but they were great for cracking heads!

    No. The wood belongs to the landowner.
