Been in a basement wargaming for 7 1/2 hours today. Summer's here, sun's out, and a pile of us hide from it rolling dice and arguing about rules and having a fine time. Life is what you make of it. Ate gorp and used new multitool to fashion a die-rolling cup out of a chocolate box. Not that the victor let it go to his head, but well done to Ian's side.

As I was packing boxes of figures into my car I noticed the Woolworths car boot liner. Something grabbed my attention, and I finally opened it out. It is a 5'x5' square of plastic. It has 8 eyelets and carrying handles on each corner. "Tarpaulin?" thinks I. Not as light as nysil, but a good temporary shelter if raining or when I get the urge to try out the bivvy bag. Tentpegs in the corner, walking poles and paracord. Or as a tent footprint. For the weight, I think I'll add it to the pack.

Only other prep work was resizing some more mp3 tracks.
