What goes on in the woods stays in the woods.
Although TBH I only really need proper business once every couple of days so I can combine that with getting a coffee in a MacDonalds or whatever.

 

McVonDonalds used to do a 'McBacon Und Eggs' breakfast for next to nothing. Maybe they still do?

You say that just as I'm spending the night in a warm cosy hostel. To justify it though, it was -4C last night and a bit of snow is due tonight.
It's okay being out in the elements for several days at a time but occasionally some proper warmth is required. I don't know why but I feel really guilty about staying in a hostel, like I'm cheating or summat.

Jesus man you aren't cheating at all. Even if you stayed in the Hilton. This is your journey, play it how you see it lad

I have recently bought some castelli “toe thingies” ( it’s what they’re called). Neoprene and so windproof, but they’re not designed for walking in at all ( or driving 2cvs come to that) and have worn the rubber soles out in a couple of weeks.

You could do with a reflector behind your fire.

These are the results.

 

Here are the readings from the thermometers. "Tarp" is the thermometer in between the reflector and tarp that should receive any heat reflected by the reflector. "90" is the thermometer that was placed 90 degrees from the reflector, that should receive heat from the fire but would not receive heat reflected by the reflector. "Amb" is the ambient temperature measured on the thermometer 30 yards away. These measurements were taken over a three hour period, and all are degrees Fahrenheit.

Tarp 90 Amb

47 41 39
47 40 38
41 35 29
39 32 27

A piece of Bacofoil would do.

I always found proper German Turkish kebabs utterly fantastic compared with the soggy envelope of dead dog shavings you get in the UK.

 

A good hunk of real bread, filled with recognisable meat, veg and a scorching yet tasty sauce - can recommend.

 

 

Not universally true...thankfully. Access to good kebabs is one of the things that makes living in London tolerable...amazing, inexpensive Turkish food is available in most parts of North London.

 

Green Lanes, near where I live, has practically become a tourist attraction, best Turkish food outside of Istanbul... I was genuinely disappointed when I went on holiday in Turkey.

 

I love the kebabs, but the stews are my favourite. Lamb and aubergine, chicken and potatoes... mmm... loads of fresh flat bread, rice and/or couscous, salad... A tenner feeds the family.

 

Oooh and rice pudding!

 

Ken will tell you.

 

 

But yeah, it's weird that German/Turkish thing. Good combination.

 

 

Anyway, more importantly GOOD CYCLING MAN. Keep shovelling in the cheese and bread and smoke up - it'll warm your spirits.

Exactly - it wasn’t a criticism, quite the opposite.

Cheshire Road? Bounds Green? I'll put my thinking hat on... It all happens up my end of Green Lanes really - Harringay beyond Turnpike Lane and up to Finsbury Park. Lots of choice along Green Lanes between Harringay "gardens" and "the ladder". Saying that there are plenty of busy places in Wood Green that I haven't tried but are probably good. There's probably a brilliant place just round the corner from your sister that I don't know about.

 

My favourite places are up in Dalston (Mangal) and Newington Green (Beyti). Round here I like the older and less posh Diyarbakir close to Harringay Green Lanes station. They don't sell alcohol, and it's really busy, but the food is always good. 

 

You can't really go too far wrong TBH.

Man, I would fucking relish doing what you are doing. Getting away from the crap would be ideal tbh.

 

As Marm says, North London is ace for most food Turkish, couple of excellent places round Edmonton, just have to dodge the knives and the bullet casings.

Amazing stuff and weighs nearly nothing. I've used it to roll out under/around sleeping bags when snow camping and for long descents (especially from cold).
