Bag it and Bin it
Isn't the market a fickle place? It reacts as quickly as your finger in the fire - and all is fair.
Apologies to the South if you don't have the following hillwalking brands but trust me.
Today I exchanged old owls in the woods and the horny black toad for the big smoke - Belfast. No jokes about "smoke" now ....
Mission - to offload a backlog of very old gift vouchers.
My father was a golfer and crestfallen when he was given golf stuff as presents.
"What's the matter with people? If I wanted that, I would have bought it myself ..."
So all these gift vouchers are for hillwalking shops.
Into the city centre and ..........
Bathgate no more, Linwood no more, Methil no more ...... Tiso's no more, Milletts no more, Blacks no more, Surf Mountain no more. At least no more in Belfast.
Some, if not all of these, were at the very leading edge of Hillwalking and Mountaineering equipment.
A world without Graham Tiso's is a world without some outrageously dear kit but also one without the very best, money could buy.
And for today's hillwalker ... ish, what do we have? On the table d'hote menu in Belfast today Sir/Madam we have .... Trespass and Cotswolds.
I have no idea if their stuff is any good. I certainly don't own any of it because what I see is fashionwear for the mountains which is a whole different thing from mountainwear for the mountains.
In the beautiful art of high hillwalking, there has been a freefall dumbing down since I bagged my first Munro in 1990.
In the last few years the suffocation of that spirit has been staggering
I so mourn its passing.
