Going to try one of these up GW/NW001 later this week. Anyone know where I can get a cheapish battery powered compressor or alernatively 2500/3000 folk willing to accompany me to help blow it up.

No need. Fill it with helium and it will carry you and all you kit to the summit.

Better still, fill it with real ale and you’d never want to leave the summit.

I don’t think that the rules would allow that.

The real ale idea of Mike’s sounds good to me. Don’t know that I’d bother with the accent.

Hey! Once the compressor stops working and the motor is turned off and you start floating - where is the motorised transport. From that point on, seems non-motorised to me!

Brilliant! I like the one on the pickup “great for surveillance”. Yep, nobody would notice that in my neighbourhood :o)
