EVERY LIDL HELPS, SORT OF THING
Brenno you are such an old grump pot. I am with Frankie viv-a-vis the Lidl hiking treasure trove. In fact I am just back from said emporium 19.99 sterling lighter and the pleased owner of a splendid new waterproof jacket. Let me share my experience. Buy the jacket – it is worth 4X the money. The brown is brown if you like brown; the green is better than in the brochure, the Ladies white is good and blue is mine. Sizes are measured against Pygmies so go much bigger. The boots should be avoided except for very low level stuff: too many bits and no shank, but low level yes. The pantaloons are damned fine if perhaps not as lightweight as in the hilly shop but for a tenner sterling who cares. Look fairly tough too. Fleece good although only for women. Don’t start me. Socks, binos, lamp, rucksacks nowhere to be seen. Maybe you need the lamp to see them hardyharhar. Or perhaps the binoculars Advice: absolutely do jacket and suit yourself about the rest. Luv Cra – your own secret shopper.
Pee Ess for the past week, friends and colleagues have been badgering me to get down to Lidl to avail of this retail event. Bad state of affairs when they think Lidl kit would be an improvement.

Headed out last Sunday to climb Tievebaun, but the lightning put me off. Got some great views in the Gleniff Horseshoe as a consolation.
