    Collapsible hot tent stove

    I am searching for a fold away tent stove. The one I have seen is too pricey as it is made of titanium. Do any of you know of a stainless steel alternative? It needs to be fold away so that I can transport it on my trike. Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Buffalo Hood?

    The hood helps somewhat to prevent drips of rain trickling down your neck when it is raining heavily.

    Hope everyone got home safely after a successful first meet at Lordswood. The venue has masses of potential following the establishment of a base camp.

    Without tempting fate the issue with my Spyder is not as bad as first thought so I may have it back by the meet, fingers crossed. Again thank you to Dave for the offer of a lift.

    Ordered a canvas and wool blanket from Journeyman Bushcraft and a frying pan pouch from David Friars. The blanket will be used when I get in and out of the hammock during the night.

    I have the same issue with drying out as I do not smoke. Have tried encasing lighter in inner tube and placed vaseline between inner and outer casing as well as storing in a sealed plastic bag. Is yours a Zippo brand insert?

    Terry, Which insert did you go for? A Zippo or a copy? Are you happy with its performance?

    New axe mask

    If you look at Ted Baird's youTube channel it will remind you why an axe needs a secure mask!

    What did you buy today?

    Bought a Paramo Pajaro today. Usually have Gore Tex waterproofs but thought I would give the analogy system a try. The material seems a lot softer than Gore Tex which helps keep it rustle free when nature watching. I am sure it will be well tested in UK weather conditions.

    Thinking of getting a trangia

    Which trangia were you thinking of? The 27 is smaller than the 25. I use the 27 and I have used it for 2 people for a couple of nights. I would suggest that you get a trangia fuel bottle as it makes filling the burner easy without any splashes. Must admit I use the trangia triangle more often...

    Thin buffalo top - anything from other brands too?

    I have an early version of the Arktis swat shirt for warmer weather. The newer versions feature reinforced panels. The shirt which goes over the head and has no hood is a lot lighter than any of my buffalo tops.
