Museum piece, or the perfect cookset for the end of days?
Well, I dont know about the post-apocalyptic bit, but I like this stove loads and although production of the SIGG cookset stopped about 1990, I think it's hard to beat.
The cookset is very reminiscent of the trangia set, is about the same size and weight and works in a similar way, with some crucial differences though. It was made in several flavours and different materials (though most ...by
Outfitting the Land Rover Defender 90 for Wild Camping.
Part1: The "Cook Partner" expedition double burner stove from Partner Steel.
My interests in camping have been moving away from the "hump it in a bag on your back" to "hump it in a large four wheel drive vehicle" for a while now. I suppose it's an age thing. I remember when I hit 30, the slight sense of relief that I was now allowed to be boring and not to go out on a Friday night. It's with a similar sense of relief with 45 looming, that I feel I am now allowed to drive my Land Rover to my chosen campsite and live with significant decadence out of the back of it.

I was thinking about this last night when watching the news. I was seeing reports of the police advising thousands of people to evacuate their homes on the east coast due to the threat of an extra big storm surge flooding out the area. I was thinking to myself, a bug out bag would be handy in that...Last Post By: Martyn Yesterday, 03:08 PMfilleep
My Para 2 arrived today, so a quick look at it next to a Manix 2, a knife I remain impressed with. Phone camera in dim late afternoon so don't look if you expect Martineden standard thread. I was naively surprised by the similarities, expecting the P2 to be much slighter and more "tactical"...Last Post By: Nice65 Today, 02:37 PMearthman
What's the top singular AAA torch that's currently on the market? The only one I've ever had is Maglite Solitaire, real old school hey.:lol: OK despite it being 'old school' I really like the fact that it can tail stand and that the head is tightened to 'turn off'. From what I gather, all the...Last Post By: Noddy Today, 08:50 AMearthman
Following on from the 'Bug out bag for a local flood' thread, got me thinking of these videos that Mr Nut made, fast forward to around 22.40 to see the bag and all the items.
