    Anybody going got a 12v airbed pump

    I fancy bringing my small airbed rather than the thermarest but would need to pick up a small 12v pump en route. This may not be possible due to late departure time so will anyone else there have a suitable 12v pump with a large nozzle I can borrow 2moro evening?

    I've got one specially designed to be used on motorbike 12v sockets...but I don't think I can make it, even on my 'ickle bike due to my son having an accident yesterday and now needing a bit of tlc and his 'ole mum fussing over him (he's only 12, so he'll hate it).

    If you have an Argos near you Rushy Argos do a nice lightweight one in yellow that runs on 12v sockets, and it includes the larger nozzles. Its also cheap to buy.

    Hope it goes well Bryn - post up the pics so I can feel suitably jealous and sulk all next week for missing it

    If you're thinking of a ride out in the region let me know

    Thanks Rushy

    Here's a link to the item in question...its blown up my double airbed in the past quite quickly via the 12v socket on my bike and folds up quite small:

    Hope the rest of you are having a great time up there at the moment. I was having an exciting evening myself swatting off a load of sticky fingered Chavs who were all over my bike while I had nipped into a shop. I wear a flip front helmet which they had never seen before - one of them said 'oh, its one of those powerangers helmets innit, what racers wear innit'
