Banjoe, good for you, that's a level of dedication to music which I have never achieved. It makes sense that a metal clad or spunover rim would work well for a camping banjo. You're very brave to be willing to carry something like that with you.

Conk, thank you very much. I have always enjoyed your trip reports, you get into places I would never have the gumption to attempt. I don't know if even a banjo would have been enough to induce the folks at #27 to leave during the thunderstorm, and they left quite soon after it ended.

Lucky13, you may be right but I would say that Highland pipes are the most powerful musical weapon, the volume they can produce is (in my experience) unbeatable.

Fun report! I appreciate your friendship with frogs & toads. And yes, it seems that (this year at least) the best route for the small floating bog is north side on the Low's half, then zig to the south side -- or vice versa. I still had to get out & drag at the beginning of the south side part, but it was easy.

If you do not want to weaponise the pipes maybe try the Northumbrian small-pipes

Rickhart, I'm glad I wasn't missing something obvious about the right way through the floating bog. I suppose that if it did break off from the larger bog and drift in there it's not surprising that it could continue to move around from time to time.

Blackflie, I am not familiar with Northumbrian pipes but I'll look them up. I have thought that the uillean pipes look like they would be fun to learn someday (and are not nearly as loud), but I should learn to play the things I already try to play better before taking on something new.
