I have been following your blog for awhile now and thoroughly enjoy it.
I have a copy of1991 Exploring Scottish Hill Tracks by Ralph Storer. A sharp onset of old age means that I will never refer to it. Is it any use to you or anybody you may know? If so, I’d be happy to send it to you as a gift.
Let me know.

Hi Jon,
I’ve followed your blog for sometime now and always found it an interesting and informative read.
Your new drjonbagworks project looks like a winner too, the dewidgit is particularly interesting, being as far as I know unique, rather than your take on an existing product.
I was wondering if you have any plans to produce an out front mount for the Garmin Etrex?
I know you did a blog post about this a while back, but to be honest I wasn’t able to correctly identify the parts in question from your links.
Yours Hopefully,

Phil Tomlinson

hey Phil, thanks for the kind words! the ‘out front’ erred mount I made had a custom aluminium Gopro part made by Pacifier – http://www.pacifier.com/~kevinb/index.html he made the part a custom length and I drilled it to accept the Japanese Rec mounts part. I wouldn’t use the Rec part now – id use a 1/4 turn adaptor and any out front 1/4 turn mount – https://www.shapeways.com/product/XF3QSGQSY/garmin-gps-etrex-to-edge-mount-converter?option=65181415&etId=189646663&utm_source=automated-contact&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=payment-received&utm_content=3 – I’m hoping to have a 1/4 turn DeWidget top cap adaptor soon for either Garmin or wahoo….few details to work out.
