I predict many sing-a-longs. You'd better stock up on firewood and marshmallows and flannelette shirts. Actually, better make that Wild Turkey instead of marshmallows.

Let's see.... The Gambler, Lucille, Coward of the County, Islands in the Stream, Lady. Must be many more.

Possibly was the most perfectly manicured beard in the music world.

Yep, fair call I'd say, obviously then was then then, and now is then.

Just picked up a few rolls of aldi clear contact.
I find this the best contact to cover maps I print off 6 maps or commercial paper maps as it is the thinnest so is easier to fold and weighs less

The Aldo special buys for Sat just gone are good for the Ultralight bushwalker. You just have to be selective and hope there's some stuff left. Got some compression shorts to try mainly nylon some elastane- perfect. The varied shirts were/are good. 100% poly-some no elastane-win. Like all Aldo-go for what works-the women's stuff always seems better and more in the UL frame.
Some of the trackie dacks were good for active walking if you don't have some good wind pants -UL in weight/feel. I think both men's and women's were all poly-again and no elastane-win.
Heaps of stock left at the shop I went to probably because it was all light (quite UL) weight and Ozzies just love those heavy sport clothes. If you're not sweating your not working I s'pose.

Bit late at 'my' aldi. Last pair of men's shorts in my size. No shirts. And this was Sat ~ noon.

Aldi do have a stock checking web page .. but not good on the day. And I think it lags the truth by a day.
If you want the good gear you have to be early .. at least for the stores around me, there was one that was good .. but it closed due to lack of customers :roll: .

I went for a men’s shirt, as I didn’t like the mesh sleeves on the women’s, and there were only XS left tonight in the women’s anyway.

And I’m right for “fitness socks” for a while. Very happy with the last lot which have done a few years.

Update - been wearing my Aldi men's t-shirt, absolutely love it! The lightweight fabric is great.

Ski sale soon.
22nd of May
The new balaclavas and face masks are advertised as windproof so worth looking at.
Otherwise the stuff looks as per the last few seasons. I won't be shopping as I already have too much gear; although I do like the LW quarter zip fleeces
Ve are too soon old und too late schmart

Today's "special buys" - lightweight synthetic travel blanket for $29.99. 350g on my kitchen scales with the bag (and label).

Wine bottle is for scale only!

Capacity to be smaller in a compression sack but not sure whether it would re-loft very well.

I was away and missed this, a friend has picked up some more of the legendary ski socks for me. I live in fear that they will be discontinued!

The el cheapo fleece gloves are seriously the warmest pair of gloves I own. And I love the ladies' 1/4 zip merino tops but there were no leftovers in either of our local stores, and no shelf tag for them either, which makes me think maybe there weren't any.
