Say something funny & win an Evernew Ti DX stove set & Tibetan Titanium pot!

This was supposed to be the post I used to re-launch Thunder In The Night on it's own custom domain but after a week of tears, hair-pulling, worry, brave attempts at helping my IT-incompetent ass from friends and an awful lot of swearing we are back at square one.

And so on to the give-away...

In order to simplify my budding stove selection I'm giving away the Evernew Ti DX stove set I reviewed here, along with a Tibetan 700 titanium pot. The stove set is boxed but will of course fit nicely into the pot making a very light (201g) and compact package. All you have to do to win this set-up is leave a funny caption as a comment, for the photo, above, of Hendrik. I am aware that some banter may result so please pre-fix your competition entries with 'ENTRY'.

As you can see the gear has been used a few times but it's all in A1 nick, if a little sooty. The competition is open until 15th July 2010 when I'll employ one of those clever random number generator thingummys to pick a winner. I'll then contact the lucky person via e-mail and post the prize! The competition is open to anyone in Europe.

Looking forward to your comedy gold!

-Five bucks says he won't buy a bigger one! You just KNOW it's gonna be heavier!

-I should really train my bear-bagging-skills. Always get messed up...

-I'm confused. Would I count as baseweight or as consumables???

-Ever worried finding such a hairy thing in your rucksack? Don't leave it unattended in Finland!

Carlsberg don't make bivvy bags, but if they did, they'd probably be the best bivvy bags in the world.

NOT AN ENTRY

Does that mean you're giving up on the DX then? From a man who knows how the mind of a gear freak works, what have you got on order to replace it?

- You guys fooled me, I'm the only one in a bag on this train!

Good work guys! Keep 'em coming.

Dave - very astute of you. Yes, I have another wood burner... or two...

Entry: Hendrik can decide if it is an Ultralight bivi bag or ultra heavy sock

Martin Rye said...

Not a Entry and guessing Four Dog and Ikea stove/wood burner is the answer for Dave?

NOT AN ENTRY (got the stove already give it to someone who needs it) but how about:

- I Know it was in here somewhere!

This is my new compression method for my sleeping bag. :-D

ENTRY:
1) Finaly, after some time and some discomfort, the bag gave up and spat out the ultralighter it had tried to digest...

2)
The rest of the trains occupants looked on in amazement, as the bag vent through final metamorfus and became a beautiful ... eehh interesting... ultralighter.

ENTRY 1:

"If pants just wouldn't count as base weight I hadn't ended up like this."



ENTRY 2:

"I knew I shouldn't have shaved my legs just to save some weight."

Johan said...

ENTRY #:

"Next time, TWO socks, ok?"

Johan said...

ENTRY 4:

Just before he fell, Hendryk realized orange just wasn't his colour.

Erik Svensson said...

Entry:

Hendrik is demonstrating his new ultralight tent:

- Sure, it's a bit snug, but totally worth it when you think of the huge weight savings!

UL-friends responds:

-WOW! that's überlight! I want on of those!!

End entry.

After dropping his lightsabre, Luke Sywalker finally conceded that his sleepsystem baseweight perhaps could take the hit of a few grams in the name of usability.
