Hey everyone,

Thanks for the great (practical) advice. Will be put into practice at the earliest chance ;-)

The bad weather is continuing here (the rainy season is officially June, but there have only been a couple of days in the last 6 weeks with zero rainfall...)

Between the weather and work commitments, it seems unlikely I'll get to hang again before September (before I do, though, I'll be revisiting the advice here and making myself a checklist. I'm about to go to ebay right now and get a headlamp too - I saw one with free postage to Japan in a 'camping' search a while back...)

Cheers all!
