I have become, quite frankly weary of things wearing out and down; things tearing and breaking; things leaking and seeping, generally the lack of longevity in my stuff. So this January I made a promise to myself. 2015 is going to be the year of the ‘fix’. Not the quick fix, not the temporary fix, but of good solid make do and mending. Over the next year I will catalogue my successes and failures as I attempt to extend the life of my things, predominantly the things I use to play outside. I’ve heard this kind of thing is call a ‘life hack’, well I’ll stick with a ‘fix’, but hey you guys call them what you will. I hope my trials and tribulations will amuse and inform as I try to extend the life of my kit.
