    Dixon Saracen. That's the car. (Told you it was a bloody Saracen). Google it. Looks like a Caterham 7 as suggested.

    Ok, I'll believe you! For reference, the service I was talking about is MyUS.com Not only do you get the benefit of fast postage and no separate import fees (if you use the FedEx Priority option) but by combining everything into one box you save quite a bit on the shipping! And, as MyUS is based in Florida, when you put in their address it means you don't get charged sales tax at all. Only used them the once, but so far would recommend them.

    And in terms of Streamlights, BrightGuy appears to be the best supplier I've come across. Did the Stinger DS LED HL I had tonight for $130ish.

    Well, I just got back to Sunny Milton Keynes - took a bit longer as the M25 was shut and I had to detour.

    Thank you Jay and Alex for the information about the Saracen and the Mail service.

    Great night chaps. Lovely to see all the familiar faces and meet Alex for the first time.

    Brooklands is a wonderful place, and I particularly enjoyed seeing the Stratosphere Chamber.

    Too knackered for piccies now so tomorrow it is.

    Nighty night.

    Brooklands, Brooklands, Brooklands, just what is Brooklands?






    A place with cars...




    ...and planes with plane parts...






    ...and torches!





    And CPFers, too.



    Highlight of the Museum for me.





    Light it up, Jay!





    This really is a major feat of engineering and ingenuity. Capable of subjecting the test planes to low pressure, wind, ice, snow and rain - all without leaving the ground!



    Shock-horror as CPFer tries to pocket an Earthquake Tall Boy Bomb!



    This was an outstanding fun evening, chaps. Great to see our friendly crowd playing with the tools we love the most (Torches!). Brook lands made us very welcome and we stayed in the car park chatting long after others had left.

    Throw Kings were demonstrably still the Thrunite TN42 (Jay and I), but there was a good assortment of small EDC types used throughout the evening.

    The 'Muggle' torches that everyone else brought for the night are getting stronger and better, many Chinese bright LED lights were in evidence.

    Also a hearty "well done" the Count Dracula, who kept us entertained with a virtuoso performance on his Saxophone through the dinner (No fangs though).

    There are more Torchlit tours here over the next few months - anyone for another go?

    Thanks Lee. Didn't take more than a couple of pics myself.

    Went to Longleat for their Santa Train (for my son) and their Festival of Light. Was a bunch of fairytale stuff spread around and lit up from inside. Looked quite good.

    Well, was going to put some pics up but Photobucket decided they want to charge from now on...


    Edit.... Lee, I took a page from your book and signed up with Flickr

    I clearly missed out on an excellent night of good company and torches.

    Perhaps one of those other torch-lit tours would be good.

    Out of interest, how was the food at this one?

    Pretty much the same as the last one, a bit School Dinner'ish. I'm up for any other tour.

    Hmmm.

    This gifted to me by Santa. I find myself wondering if they do a "TH20 LED...woman" version as well?

    Yup!

    I only spotted this Maxabeam on eBay the day after it ended, gutted I missed it.

    Hopefully the BLF GT will show up and cheer me up!

    Well, I love a top throwing EDC as much as the next Flashaholic, but even my pockets aren't big enough for this!

    I'd love to see one at the next meet up.

    Do they do a neck lanyard for it?

    (BTW - that's a good price for a maxabeam! I wonder who got it?)

    Anyone else found Gearbest shipping to have rapidly gone downhill lately? I found at best it takes 3 weeks or more and one packet (With a clear and correct address) landed in the correct city, got shipped off to a different city and then was returned to China. At the same time Banggood stuff is still turning up in a week and a half. You get more quidco cashback on BG as well.

    My new Nitecore Tini turned up today. It' very, well... tiny. Similar size to a photon except square. Not much heavier either. The metal body feels nice but the chromed plastic ring round the lens, not so much. On the other hand.... it's the size of a photon and produces 380 lumen on turbo!!!!!!! You have to keep your finger on the button to retain turbo but due to the lack of heatsinking that's not a bad thing.
    Not sure it' worth the price but if they are in a sale...

    Yes, mine just arrived earlier this week. (Gone for Red finish)

    Tiny and light - finish wouldn't last long on a keychain I suspect. But I'm liking the U.I. a lot.

    Low/med/high/turbo spacing seem to be usefully spaced in output. The buttons are reliable and easy to use - running it in normal mode rather than demo. I like the battery level function too.

    Wearing it on a neck chain. Nice little EDC.

    A touch too expensive, but I think I'll reserve them for presents.

    Hey guys, long time! I think I met a few of you in 2016(?) in Brighton on the Theatre Tour (and Pier). Any 2018 meets being planned?

    So, we having a meet this year or what ? Come on Lee, there must be something up near Milton Keynes that would be interesting to look at. I'm good to drive up from London(ish) for the evening or stay overnight somewhere. ( In my new car !!!)

    Done Wales, done Devon, done Sussex and Kent. Can't imagine there I anything interesting in Norfolk to do....

    Or, we could just meet up in a pub somewhere.... Alesbury, Guilford, Hampsted.....

    (Anybody else getting a instant pop up advertising page when clicking on anything on CPF?)

    Yes - lots of nice things up here.

    Some fantastic pubs and restaurants, Aqueducts, Viaducts, Concrete Cows, Follies in fields, Lakes, Churches, Wind Turbines, canals...did I mention the pubs?

    Very happy to host up here, but since we are one hour North of London, I thought the general consensus was to keep it further South - below London. But let's have a show of hands.

    Still trying to find a way of seeing some far South sites, like the Sound Mirrors or various bunkers on t'coast.

    I am not getting the instant pop up.

    I am happy to try somewhere new; north or south.

    I'm sure James (batou) will be in for it if he can. Andy, I'm happy to pick you up on the way if you can get out to West London somewhere. Let' talk dates?
