My Honor Flight by Dan McCurrigan
My Honor Flight by Dan McCurrigan
5.0 out of 5 stars My Honor Flight, 8 May 2014
An excellent read! This is a great book that I will definitely read again.
Telling the story of Buzz Company from one G.I's perspective from a few weeks before D Day through WWII and beyond.
It is a compelling read that I would recommend to anyone - especially if you enjoyed the TV series 'Band of Brothers'. This is one man's story, telling his highs and lows.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed!
Army Poncho Liner Quilted Travel Blanket Sleeping &hellip Mil-Tec
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 7 May 2014
I bought this item to be used as a light blanket as well as a poncho liner, and I am certainly not disappointed. Although quite thin, the poncho liner is quilted and provides a surprising amount of insulation against the cold. I have used this as a blanket like cover while hammock camping and I was very comfortably warm.
I would recommend this to anyone who goes camping whether in a tent or hammock. Well worth the money.
The Ultimate Hang: An Illustrated Guide To Hammock&hellip by Derek Hansen
5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, 24 April 2014
As a newcomer to hammock camping, I found this book to be very informative. Showing, through dialogue and sketches, ways to set up your hammock, tarp and insulation (if required). Derek Hansen even describes, and shows, modifications he has made to his hammock system.
Although predominantly American, some hammock manufacturers are recognisable here in the UK.
Having read this book, it makes me want to head out with my hammock and tarp to put some of the ideas and hints into practice!
I could recommend this book to anyone contemplating hammock camping.
I couldn't honestly give Derek Hansen any less than 5 stars!
