My Locale United Kingdom
About Me I live just north of London in the UK near to the Chiltern Hills and adjacent to open countryside. I'm within walking distance of several iron age settlements and one of the oldest walking trails in the UK. Natural springs, woodlands, water mills, windmills, old churches, castles and an abundance of wildlife are all within walking distance and are great for weekend trips.

For longer trips, well the glaciated lakes of the lake district and the mountains of Scotland and Wales beckon.

The UK is truly an amazing place!

Make Light Weight Tea Light Candle Lantern from plastic.
I often make use of a couple of those disposable plastic cups when camping. You know the sort that you might use at a party or at some public events. They are lightweight weighing virtually not...

Re: Making a Bushbuddy Ultra Stove with alcohol simmer / boil at will.
Thanks for the link to Titanium Goat. I also see if I can find a supplier in the UK for Titanium foil.

Re: Making a Bushbuddy Ultra Stove with alcohol simmer / boil at will.
It was a Titanium (I think) foil which I bought from the Backpackinglight store a few years ago. It was sold as a wind shield and has sat around unused in my drawer since I bought it waiting for a ...
