Patagonia Give-Away

When sorting some stuff this weekend, I found a Patagonia Vest that has hardly seen any use. It’s too big for me and Geoff says he’ll never use it, so I’ve decided to do a free give-away to a good home.

It’s a men’s, size large and synthetic fill (Primaloft), with two zipped pockets. It weighs 325g. If you are interested, please leave a message on the blog, along with some interesting fact about yourself, by midnight this coming Wednesday (Dec 18th). I’ll draw a name and put it in the post on Thursday afternoon.

I am willing to post to anywhere on the UK mainland, and while I’m happy to give the vest away, I’d be grateful if the final recipient couldย send me back a fiver to cover the postage,ย once they’ve received it.

    I’m up for it!
    Interesting fact about me, hmmmmmmm:
    I once walked home drunk from the pub, 7 miles down country lanes in my work suit and shoes ‘cos I was too tight to pay for a taxi
    Or how about:
    I once worked with a guy who’s family appeared on Family Fortunes (the Haddon family if you’re interested)
    Or how about a random non-interesting fact:
    St John’s Wood is the only London Underground Station that has none of the letters from the word “mackerel” in it
    Weak facts I know but I’ll do anything for a chance at a freebie (see point 1)

    • I’ve just realised Andy, that along with finding out random interesting facts about folk, I’ll also know that anyone who leaves a comment on this post is – or thinks he is – sized ‘large’……

    Ah…But surely Size does NOT matter!
    For interesting/uninteresting facts (or maybe fiction) read my blog.
    But since Patagonia gear is my favourite stuff I had to pitch in.

    That’s 2 x Andy already ๐Ÿ™‚

    So, broke my leg on TGOC 2004, walked 2ยฝ miles with it & got airlifted out of West Highlands.
    I Just played Widow Twankey in Panto (See blog for photos)
    My wife is VERY UNTIDY (not interesting I know, but bloody annoying)
    I once ate a whole Habanero as a bet (don’t)
    I have broken my right little toe 4 times. Not interesting just really careless

    Look, I admit it, NONE of them are interesting, Lucy is the one with the GB Triathlon Medal, and the trip to Everest!

    Oh yes….

    Hamish (the young pup – 18 months) ate a chocolate gnash with 2lb of Cocoa chocolate in it a couple of weeks ago. Cost us ยฃ450 Vet bill for injections and drips.
    He is cure, but so damned bad!
    And it was my daughters birthday cake!

    • Lots of good facts there, Andy! What type of helicopter did you get airlifted out on – a trusty Sea King or a Eurocopter 135 Air Ambulance? (Both of which I have in my die cast helicopter collection.) And what is a Habanero? The triathlon medal and the Everest trip sound amazing, and whoever heard of a Labrador eating something they shouldn’t………

    ‘Twas a Trusty SEA KING. C/O RAF Post

    Habanero – Scottish Bonnet Pepper

    By the time he got home later than evening, he had completely forgotten.
    Would have done it all over again.

    Thank the Lord for Insurance ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I’m always cold if I don’t cover my arms so ‘fraid it wouldn’t be any use to me (although I’m pretty much man-sized! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Well, it’s Thursday morning so time to announce the lucky recipient…….
    There was a 50/50 chance of course, but the vest is going to Surfnslide Andy – sorry other Andy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    If Surfnslide Andy could send me his home address this morning (I’m assuming you’ve still got my e-mail address, Andy), I’ll get it posted off before we go away tomorrow. ๐Ÿ™‚
