    You should invite a third work chap to the outing, that way if things get awkward in the middle of the night you can claim you were simply having a dream you were skiing

    One of my biggest fears is boredom.

    We won't be walking during the dark hours, so there is going to be a lot of night to fill. I asked if i should bring any games or anything, and he said we'd just sit round the fire and retire our tent early most likely as we'd be knackered.

    I've been looking on Amazon and have found some magic powder you can throw into a fire to make it change colours. I'm going to get some of that i reckon.

    What do you guys do of an evening when camping?

    And any other ideas on manly things i can film myself doing? So far my list is comprised purely of shaving with a knife and throwing my hatchet and having it stick in a tree.

    Given all the Brokeback references I really don't want a 127 hour video of what happens.

    What goes on between 2 men in a tent stays in a tent..

    The 127 hour reference is where he has to cut off his own hand to save himself.

    Yeah yeah we get that. Maybe Rodimus has to cut his hand off when the fisting goes wrong.

    Fucking in a tent is the only reason people camp man, you said youd done your homework but, frankly, Im beginning to doubt it.

    I think we all know that even if this starts out as Brokeback Mountain, by the end of the first act, it'll have switched into The Revenant.

    Do you plan to confront your companion if they turn out to be a loud/angry masturbator?

    You'll be sharing a tent so set down the ground rules early.

    Two blokes, in a very small 2-man tent. Huddled together in sub-zero temperatures while a storm rages outside.

    It'll be very full on. In fact, I guarantee it'll be fucking intense.

    I imagine the fucking they'll be doing will also be intense.

    I haven't woken up yet. That's my excuse.

    Another excuse you could use is that you're just not all that witty.

    I've spoken to my pal, done a lot of research, and the conclusion I have arrived at is that anyone scared of February in the Scottish Highlands is just a massive pansy.

    See you in five and a half months.

    Rodimus out.

    Rod, I think you should chat to user Some Goats I think you guys would be an Alpha pairing for the ages.

    This is a little embarrassing, but we have decided to push the trip back to April.

    I'm a big wrestling fan, and NXT UK came to Essex in October. I took him and some other friends to the Brentwood Centre (the night Gallus took the tag team titles!) and en route we stopped off at his for something to eat and i met his mother - who kind of had a go at me and strongly suggested that we go during a warmer time of the year.

    I really wanted to just hit her with the Sweet Chin Music, but being a respectable man i had to politely pretend to accept her point of view. To clarify: i'm not afraid of the Scottish winter - i just didn't want to upset the family of the first friend i've made since college.

    I've had a quick read of some other threads, and don't want anyone to think i've purposely misled them about something important in the same way other users have. The plan really was to go in February at the time of creating this thread. I will still provide the picture of me posing with cigar and tomahawk atop a mountain.

    Rod, if - when - it comes to it, are you absolutely sure you'll be the 'top'

    Well, now that we're going during a milder time of year, my pal said that we don't need to worry about conserving body heat as much - so we'll probably get a tent each, no neither of us will be top, and neither of us will be tail.

    It won't be as cold but it will be just as boring and lonely

    Nah man... i've looked into it a bit more. It's a really great-looking part of the world, and we're not going to just stick to the mountains now.

    The plan is we drive up there, and use my sweet Mercedes cabriolet as a sort of forward operating base. We'll store supplied there, and only take maybe 2-3 days worth with us on excursions. Then drive to a new part of Scotland.

    He's quite big on climbing i think, i often catch him saying 'i wanna stand with you on a mountain' quietly, whereas i'm more interested in exploring caves and neolithic sites.

    I think it'll be good.
