Codprawn is my hero!

there's a thread most people wouldn't expect me to start!

However - I got a new mobile last week. Tonight I went out on my bike and even though its not raining for some reason put my mobile in a freezer bag... no idea why but it must have been inspired my codders. Turns out my camelpak leaked and soaked everything - but the phone was fine.

So he does drone on about it - but on this occassion at least it worked, and will now form part of my standard bike process (as well as checking the hose on the camelpak is tight!).

I think this just highlights the dangers of physical exercise.

Tell me about it - when I saw the headline I thought it may have saved someone's life - not their Nokia.........

But you might!

I now carry two mobile 'phones with me - my personal everyday 'phone which often goes in an aquapac if it's wet or rough, then I can use the lanyard to either attach it to something on the boat, or it can go round my neck.

The second 'phone is an O2 pay-as-you go which gets seldom used and I make sure is fully charged. This one goes in the plastic bag and stays in a pocket. It will only come out in case of emergency. It has all the coastguard telephone numbers saved.

Even if it saves someone a bashing from the wife it will be a job well done........

Wow, it could turn out to be the biggest achievement of your life.
Perhaps you should change to "Bagprawn"

I like the sound of "PrawnBag" or "CodBag"

Ikea are doing some nice quality zip-locks that are quite durable.

And yes it's now standard kit for me too.
