    Yesterday I picked up some great deals, even though a lot of places are charging nearly double RRP for gym equipment during this current pandemdic.

    • Pair of Bowflex 40KG adjustable Dumbbells
    • Concept 2 Model D Rower with PM5

    Näsijärvi is where we go, going to bloody miss it this year.

    14 days of quarantine when it's a family visit is a bit pointless though on top of the whole 'don't infect the poorly family members'

    Killarny's nice though, the places we've booked look great - not the same though, plus we don't see the family for a while longer.

    I can hear my riippumatto crying :waah:

    For the Rower, there is over a 12 week waiting list right now on the concept website.

    I got mine from a new listing on eBay, guy put it up cheap BNIB as he ordered his a while back, and ended up buying a secondhand one whilst he was waiting for the new one to arrive. I was there at the right time to buy.

    Well I've the essence ST under the bonnet at the moment and I've had no issues. But then I know to disable whatever on board junk is running and nab the latest drivers off the companies site prior to installing.

    A Garmin Mini dashcam to go on the rear window of my car.

    [​IMG]

    Unlike the camera I got the hardwire kit for above, this will just be plugged into one of the rear USB sockets in the car.
    I rarely have rear seat passengers, and it'll still leave one USB available for use.

    I had an STX 1, now in my wife's PC, and I really wasn't expecting such good quality sound from an internal soundcard.

    • An Aldi special reciprocating saw with extra blades (the tree in my back yard has been getting uppity)
    • 2x 64GB "High Endurance" MicroSD cards for my dashcams (The spare one I had for the camera above was completely f***ed)
    • 2x mini blade fuse taps for the front camera's hardwire kit
    • 2x 3A mini blade fuses for the taps (Camera only draws 1A)
    • Some trim removal tools for getting to the fusebox behind the glovebox

    36-Month service for the Evora, which to my delight and contrary to my expectations, was not "the big one" :clap:
