VHD Year in Review

Last Hike - A couple of days on the Cleveland Way

Last Hike - A couple of days on the Cleveland Way

So that was 2013. Certainly a huge year for me personally and another big year for the Vintage Hiking Depot. I became an uncle, I got married, I learned to fly fish and tie flies, started Geocaching in a big way and I stayed in a yurt. I reached my 100th post, the VHD poster collection finally came to life (I even displayed them as part of a local art walk) and through the VHD I've been introduced to many great people and learnt so much.

While I feel I've fit a lot in this year there is definitely much more to come. As far as resolutions go it's pretty much identical to every other year; get out more, read more, write more, try more new things and most of all have fun. A very happy New Year to everyone, thank you all for reading and contributing to this blog, here's to 2014.

VHD Travel Yahtzee

VHD Travel Yahtzee

One of my favorite portable games would have to be Yahtzee, often when camping or traveling I strip down the big box and stuff the dice, a small pencil and some score cards into a zip-lock bag, it is very light but I always thought I could do better. May I introduce to you, the  7g VHD Travel Yahtzee.

All the goodies are housed in a watertight metal pill container, measuring 45mm x 15mm. I tracked down a set 5mm dice and made a pencil from the thick lead of an architects pencil wrapped in electrical tape. I then set about re-designing and stripping back the score sheet to its absolute bare minimum. I'm very happy with the results and can't wait to give it a field test.

I'd love to hear of anyone else's travel games, what do you take with you and how have you stripped it back?
