    Two weekends ago a friend and I got away for a quick overnighter. Some bush-bashing then a nice relaxed evening and morning beside a pool deep enough for a quick dip to cool off. The actual hike in was short enough that we could take some luxuries such as 1/2 bottle of red wine, fine cheese and plenty of eggs and bacon etc.

    Sitting at my computer watching the workers put in a cement slab for our double bay garage. Good to see it getting done at last.

    Thanks mate, seems like a longer haul this time, maybe because I am older.

    I'd never of known, Keith. When I saw you last you were so light on your feet. I wish you a good recovery, mate.


    Today: Getting ready for a series of overnighters in varying weather & testing various gear.

    Recent purchases turned up today from Holland. A Dutch Army Canteen Set and a Dutch Army Mess Kit (both stainless steel). Wanted these for some time & I feel blessed to have found them in this condition.
    Also some Zebra pots & cup and a well used Cecil & Co. Billy#1

    Yes. In the first picture you can see the 2 pans. Sorry my mistake, I copied the same link twice and it took a few moments to post the right one!

    I have no experience using them as yet, but I can provide the following specs and thoughts:
    Small pan capacity 1.2L
    Large pan capacity 1.4L
    Similar design too British Army's aluminium mess kit, except these have a handy 'lipped lid' for pot grabber use
    Both pans stainless steel, not common with many military mess kits
    I describe them as 'tinny'. They are definitely sturdy, but hot as heavy gauge as a Zebra pot for example. Quite appealing really, a good balance of weight and strength. Very similar to a Snow Peak Kettle No.1 for example

    Looking forward to many years of use with them!

    We didn't raise our voice, we didn't make a fuss. It's funny there was no one left to notice when they came for us

    I lied about being the outdoor type....
