    I wanted one without the pockets and straps, so I can fold it up and put it in my pocket when empty. (Which it does) Cost £23 + P & P.

    I received my Amok Draumr XL hammock today, along with pad and tarp, (bought last summer at considerable discount). Raining here unfortunately so I have to wait to try it out. But initial impressions are it's a very well thought out and equally well made piece of kit. I'm a very happy camper.

    Yesterday, after work, I stopped off at the post office to pick up an order from Amazon.
    A roll of self adhesive copper tape, to put around plant pots and seed trays, to keep the slugs out.
    A pair of wolf's jaw tongs to replace those that Amazon sent out last week, so badly packaged that they punched a hole in the cardboard box and escaped.

    This time, when I was handed the package it felt like it contained something (unlike last time). Once again, the box had been consolidated at the sorting office with the special tape.

    Anyway, I didn't want to carry that big box home, I was going to stop for essential supplies on the way, so I cut open the box and looked inside.

    What a surprise... not.

    Just a loosely scrunched wad of brown paper on top of the copper tape and the pair of tongs. Nothing wrapped around the pointy jaws or reins.

    And the jaws had punched a hole in the box again. :rolleyes:

    Ordered a trangia triangle today. May have to make a modification to carry my stanley pot which I think will be too slim. Any suggestions on how to modify? If all else fails I have a trangia kettle I can use.

    Love that stove Wayland. Very cool.

    Make a triangle that fits over the three upstanding pot supports from metal rod and it allows you to use smaller sized pots. I use an Alpkit Ti mug on mine. I made it from an arc welding rod after I cracked the flux off!

    In another thread, but an Eagle Industries 1.5l kettle a couple of days ago. I gave mine to Zorros grandson Chris, who’s an excellent lad interested in gathering himself some decent kit. It really wasn’t getting any use, I was preferring the Primus Litech for walk in camping. Now the hips have been giving me the aches, I’m car camping more, and less worried about weight.

    I must get a tripod or pot hanger if anyone has any recommendations?

    Thanks for the tip. I thought a piece of wire coat hanger might suffice, problem is who uses wire coat hangers anymore.
