  1. Three things I can never leave without: my Leatherman, a roll of gaffa (the good $50 a roll stuff) and my torch (dual torch action, a wide beam, a sharper narrower beam, and turn the top and it turns into a flashing amber warning light!)

    Great stuff Stephen, keep it up!

  2. Na; where can I find one of those torches!? That sounds amazing, I think my ASM sometimes needs to see my amber warning light, hehe! (I’m in the UK so website would be great, thanks!)
