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: Paella backpackers?
It was!!! I'm relieve someone has a sense of humour! But I do cook it for real. For rice I use Uncle Bens parboiled rice - it only takes a 10 min simmer on a very low heat, so very little f...

Paella backpackers?
I wonder how many other BPLers out there eat Paella on the trail? I love it. I make it with Chorizo, risotto rice, white beans and a seasoning mix of dried tomatoes, dried red pepper, dried onio...

Re: Single AA battery headlamps
