    I know that some of you like to have a spare stove, or one to use outside when on holiday in your motorhome so I thought I'd mention this as it would be ideal - it is a compact gas stove which works off gas canisters (like aerosol cans) which has been reduced in our local Asda to £7.50 (was £10.00).

    Its similar to the standard cartridge gas stove in a plastic case but on a bit smaller scale - it still has the large burner and pot stand, but the metal framework is smaller and the holder for the canister has a sliding piece so you can push it in when you're not using it (obviously removing the cylinder for safety reasons anyway!) so it fits nicely into the smaller case which also has fold-back handles . A nice piece of design and takes up less room than the 'original' style of these stove.

    We've just got one and it's a little corker and uses the same cheap canisters as our portable BBQ. :thumb:

    But with Go Outdoors you have to pay a fiver a year to shop there - as if it were a privilege when most of their discounted prices are no better than anywhere else :Smile:

    Be carefull as these are maybe a cheap copy of the Campingaz Bistros and they are not very good and can be dangerous.

    Lots of copies about and we would not touch them with a bargepole.

    yes you are right about the fiver for a discount card, my daughter has one so we just give our postcode and the discount is taken off, over the year we saved lots more than the five pounds i have not paid, got a tent extension that fits on our camper van for £70 instead of £119 made it into a drive away one. happy days,
    so if you wont spend a fiver just ask someone who has one for there postcode as they never ask for the card :thumb:

    Yes, but how much would it have cost elsewhere? £75 or even £65? :Smile:

    We have a couple of long standing camping & caravanning shops on Tees-side which normally match or beat Go Outdoors "discounted" prices without the cost of the membership. When I've looked in Go Outdoors at items like clothing and walking shoes I've found that the discounted prices are certainly no better (and often dearer) than other suppliers.

    I think one of our sons has a discount card (he certainly used to) but I'd rather go to a shop which is clear about its pricing instead of one which tries to dress up its prices as though its discounts are something special.
