Matt - I will need to see how the driving goes. The Mynd is fair distance from here in Northampton. I am thinking more like Bardon Hill CE-004 which is still 40 miles or so each way. I like the rig - haven’t actually seen one of those in the flesh. As Andy says, it looks too nice to take out, but you might risk it in some bubble wrap - just the once.
Neil - no sherpa required, just a lighter load than my usual 11kg +. Maybe the 817, a 2200MAH LiPo and a halo on a small pole. To have someone carry my kit would be a first - we can’t have that.
Andy - meds, don’t ask! 7 varieties at the moment and a review tomorrow. Hoping to “lose” a few!
Barry - it sounds like we are reasonably matched, though I don’t actually get that short of breath as the beta blocker cuts off my heart rate around 100 bpm, so acting as a performance limiter. Resting heart rate is in the upper 50’s, so I try not to stand up too quickly lest I kneel over.

EDIT: 02.08.2018 The appointment at the local hospital this morning turned out to be more of a check up than a medication review. All went okay, so as Paul G4MD would say, it is onwards and upwards.
