RIP Titanium Mug

MugAfter a much needed brew on the summit of Tosson Hill the other day I strapped my Lifeventure Titanium Mug to the outside of my pack using the walking pole loops. I was in a bit of a rush on the way down the north side because the sun was setting fast and somewhere along the way it dropped off into the heather – probably never to be seen again. Bugger.

It was an alright mug while it lasted although every time I used it I played a lottery to see whether I’d burn my face off whilst the cuppa was still hot or wait long enough that my drink was luke warm before braving it. I recently bought a Sea to Summit Delta Insul-Mug so I don’t have to go shopping for a replacement. Its just a bit of a pain in the arse losing something like this, but hey, life goes on.

      Wow Tonya, thank you so much for the Liebster Blog nomination! You’re too kind, really.

      I’ll set about answering your questions over the weekend and get a post up with my nominations as soon as I can. Now to pick my favourite piece of gear…
