About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: Re: Criticism after 'car park rescue' of Cairngorm walker
I disagree. The guy made it down to the ski centre buildings, so he was not lost and he was not reported to be injured, so why did he think that he needed rescuing? He was just 400m from the car ...

Re: stiffening vents
Look up "boning" from a dress making shop. It is used for making corsets, some wedding dresses and theatrical costumes. It used to be whale bone, hence the name, but now you get two types...

Re: Re: Dry Baking Set Up Questions
My remote canister stove is less than 100g as is Roger's stove. Alcohol stoves are so light I wonder if it is possible to make one with a low output dedicated to baking?

Re: Re: Dry Baking Set Up Questions
Sarah - Ti pots are bad for anything other than boiling water. Ti is a poor conductor of heat and Ti pots are very thin so I agree that you will get a hot spot with almost any stove and burnt food ...

Re: Re: Dry Baking Set Up Questions
A non-stick pan is fine for dry baking. The most important component is the stove - you need one with a very low simmer capability. I'll emphasise that again - VERY LOW simmer. That way, you do...

At first glance this looks like just another anodised aluminium cook set, but on closer inspection you will find that these pots have a real standout feature. There is a spiral groove machined or stam...
