Huge stainless steel stock pot. Now I can water bath my garden and foraged produce .I've been hunting one of these for months.

Also a lightweight bivvy bag from treckmate and a winter sleeping bag brand new unused (so it says but I'd say it has been used at least once, but it's in A1 condition.).
Total all 3 items £20 from my local charity shop.

Also treated myself to a no8 opinel from the local fishing shop as I've mislaid my old one... well it's in one of my bags but.....which one????

No idea what they’ll be like, but a set of these magnetic cutlery sporky things. In olive wood for me and another in ‘pretty things‘ colours for my good lady. For our planned campervan journeys once all our tomatoes and assorted veg have been plucked and eaten. We kind of battened down for the Covid-19 for a project and some good food, not really knowing how the crisis was going to pan out. But growbags and crops need constant watering, feeding, weeding, picking and are a bit of a tie. It’s been good though, lots of fresh beans and stuff. We’re looking to wait until the staycationers go home and set off for a bit around the country.

Well, it seemed a good excuse to buy some camping cutlery, I don’t need much pushing. :)

My recent aquisition - a TBS Timberwolf mk2 with a ferro rod and sharpening stone. Its a beautiful knife thats wickedly sharp. I've 1k grit wet sanded several layers of Osmo oil into the scales to make it glassy smooth and to help it stand up to the riggors of a Welsh winter. Well happy with it.

Officially a bit jealous. It’s going to take a slight excess of funds to get me to push the button on one, I don’t ‘need’ a new knife. I reckon you’ve taken the smart option with the higher hollow grind and the DC4 running lengthways. I like the other sheathes, but it seems a bit clunky to mount the stone horizontally. Be interested to hear your views after a few months use.

It would be good to hear your thoughts on these, wanted for a similar reason, but don't own a carvan yet...part of the new design the lovely wife has planned.

Maybe a cheap Trail Hawk, being as it’s the last blade you’ll be needing for a while afterwards. :D
Actually giving serious though to buying one of the Tomahawks from CS ( suggestions for best one to modify ) , drilling the handle and head out and actually having a functional Peace Pipe.

I‘ll keep you posted. Sporks are a bit rubbish, all in one hobo sets are impractical food traps, and don’t reach far enough down a Not Foodle pot. I just kind of liked these because they have a bit of style.

So carvan, caravan or camper? Be a nice addition to the thread whatever. Best of luck with it all, it’s a brave decision. :)

Caravan, rather than camper and then tents if space needed.....kind of capping myself, the going off bit it okay, it is what happens after....?
