    Great story and a great cause. The Scottish Highlands were dense oak forests until Neolithic times when our ancestors cut/burned the forest down and grazed sheep on that land for five thousand plus years.
    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.

    Love the vest he's rigged up. Functional. Can't believe he's still wearing a sporran though...gotta be painful.

    To me, the vest appears to be repurposed military web gear.
