Watch strap ordered and donate button added

I’ve ordered a new watch strap for my Garmin Fenix 3 sapphire watch. I bought it from Hopefully it’ll arrive soon. I ordered the 26mm strap as that looks to be the correct size for this watch, and it’s a two piece strap. Those with the heart rate version of the watch might encounter problems with single piece straps.


I’ve also added a donate button in the about section of the site, I have no idea if it works or not.

A couple photos

These are nothing special, but I like the lighting and the colours you find in the woods 🙂


Possibly the worlds lightest lights for the Pacific Crest Trail

I recently stumbled upon a YouTube video regarding 20w and 100w LEDs. I’m not sure how it took me there since I was looking at something completely unrelated, but I had this idea that perhaps I could get something smaller for my travels. After searching Amazon for a little while, I found some wonderful USB powered LEDs. They’re only about 1 or 2 watts, but they’re probably quite useful if I want to take a photo of the tent from the outside.

Unlike most USB devices, these can work when they’re reversed too. They’re amazing. I’ve bought a couple, and I’ll see if I can use one of them in a reversed position, this way it would provide a 360 degree light source (a bit like a lantern) when they’re placed in a USB power bank. I’m not sure if these would be sufficient to replace a headlamp; I’ll provide an update soon when they arrive. It would certainly save a few grams. Considering the cost and weight of these devices, I think they’re at least worth trying out.
