    Newbie here!

    My name's Andy and I'm from the UK. I've recently started hiking/camping quite a bit so I've been surfing t'internet for the best gear to buy.

    You guys have cost me a fortune by the way!!!

    Since joining and browsing edcforums.com and checking out all this cool I've been like a kid in a sweet shop. I've since ordered myself:

    - Fenix L1D black, I liked it so much and seeing nutnfancy's review of it I ordered the...

    - Fenix L2D (in Ltd Edition OD green with the orange tail switch - oh yes!)

    - Leatherman Micra in blue

    - Leatherman Squirt S4 in red (I know, I already had the micra but I won it cheap on ebay!)

    - Victorinox Rucksack

    - Firesteel - just thought they were cool!

    - 200ft of paracord (various colours) to make lanyards, monkey's fists and with some inspiration from stormdrane (he CAN tie knots!) a customised collar and lead for my dog!

    - new Zippo (went for a slim one yeah yeah "they're for girls" but it's small, light and slick!)

    - Maxpedition Remora Gearslinger to carry it all in! (cheers to milspecmonkey for the thourough reviews on them!)

    It's been good to check out all the user reviews before making purchases and as a result, I'm happy with everything I've bought. So I have to say thanks to you all for that!

    Great site by the way guys!

    Cheers!

    Andy
