    Monkeyboy - your friends from Canada are ambitious!

    What new torch did you order?

    Hello Ken, good to see you're still around on CPF. I'm keeping an eye on the GTA thread.

    I just ordered a Malkoff MD3/4 (with XP-G emitters). I'm looking forward to that one coming but it will probably take a while from the US and I always get hit by import duty too. Should be worth it though as I've been waiting for the XP-G version for some time. This will be my first torch purchase in about 5 months.

    I just realised I can now say "torch" without being mocked repeatedly.

    torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch torch

    Andrew, I hereby officially mock you for saying 'torch'



    Er....Mock! Torchyman.....


    BTW - the Malkoff sounds terrific - bring it to the next one!

    We hope to still be able to make it, although might not be able to stay too late for the pizzas after the walk - depends on tube times back to home. See how it goes.

    Have two new SST50 based torches on the way, and will bring the monster maglite

    It will be interesting to compare the Malkoff to one of my XPG Mag mods
    Malkoff normally ships quickly

    Would be good to compare XP-G's if not this time then maybe the next. What's your plan tx101? Still coming round later?

    I misread the tfl website earlier. The last tube train for me is at 00:16 actually and I'm going all the way to the other end of the northern line. So plenty of time for pizza etc.

    post#152 updated

    +1 What about blueLED, is he still unable to post? anyone know if he's coming?

    I need to get back to Suffolk eventually and the last mainline train is about 23:00 so I may stay somewhere local over night.
    And you I'll bring the PK1.

    @ Monkeyboy, I finish work around 5, depending on the traffic
    it take me roughly about a hour to get there. So it is more than
    likely that Im not going to be that late


    @Essexman ..... if I bring my Flexifoils and attach a load of torches to them
    We could fly them on the Heath when it gets dark .... is that enough to make
    you come to this meet :P


    Where are you BlueLED ????


    BTW ... I am coming from Canning Town, East London ... If anyone needs
    a lift, let me know

    Welcome to the thread jamie.91. If you can't make it to this one, our plan is to have meetings every few months so do come along when you can. I'm guessing you're from the North of England or Wales if it's a 5 hour drive?

    London Lad, looking forward to seeing the legendary PK1.

    I confused my father by telling him about my new flashlight.

    It is becoming contageous... I am British and speak British English (why do I even have to say 'British' in front?) and the word for a portable electronic light powered by batteries in 'English' is a TORCH!!!

    Is it possible for my regional settings in this forum to allow me to become a 'Torchaholic' or 'Lightaholic' instead of a 'Flashaholic'? (I don't go round 'flashing')

    No, but there are Paid Subscription options for you to become a CPF Benefactor, which will appear next to your name instead of 'Flashoholic'.

    Not long to go now! My Malkoff wildcat hasn't arrived yet so it will probably show up sometime next week. Wasn't really expecting it this soon anyway.

    I'm going to have to drop out at short notice...

    Put my foot down a hole in the garden where we're clearing it (had to dig out a large set of roots for some brambles) and I've twisted my bloody ankle. So that rules out the hampstead walk this evening

    Have a good time guys!

    Do a lot of you guys actually live inside London? Would be good to have a meet somewhere just outside London, Hampstead would be a bugger to get to for me. Im in Camberley, Surrey. Just SW of London. Theres plenty lovely country pubs and North Downs etc to walk on... just a thought. Have a good time at the meet, dont dazzle too many barmaids/Hampstead Heath doggers lol.
