What an excellent bit of kit .. :thumb:
does anyone have one for sale ?
Thats one hell of a leap Jim
Georgie Boy to a Kelly Kettle
it's called downsizing ... :Wink:
Brilliant but not a £35
I'd rather boil water in a small metal tin over a camp fire at that price
Have a go at making one out of an old aluminium flask
alternative it looks like a minature milk churn - try one of those
I used to make them when in the Scouts from two bean cans .. . :thumb:
where can I nick a miniature milk churn ? :Laughing:
I have two of these, i have used in some fairly extreme conditions where you would never get a fire to light. You can boil a mug of water using just one sheet of newspaper and in the past i have burnt sheeps wool collected from a barbed wire fence to boil some water. stunck but worked. I feel it one of those bits of kit that is worth its wieght in gold on the rare occasions that it is needed.
I just knew good old flea bay would have some :Rofl1:
go on Terry , get bidding, you know you want one ... :Laughing:
naw :Rofl1: already carry leccy and gas one :thumb:I can always drink water or pop :Rofl1: notice I did not say beer :Rofl1:
ahh yes, but these are carbon neutral
and what if you run out of gas and the sun don't shine .. ? your up sh1t creek :Laughing:
Defiantly not drinking from sh1t creek :Rofl1: will have to do without
There's more information than any sane man would want to know about Kelly and Ghillie kettles, Hobo stoves, Swiss Volcano stoves et c. here:
We prefer a hobo stove - a biscuit tin and a bit of batoning with their sheath knives. Great fun!
WE came across these in New Zealand with our cousins when we all went on a tour with a guide After walking in the southern fiords, we were miles away from civilisation on the side of a lake-desperate for a cup of tea.
Couldn't believe it when the guide took out one of these kettles,water sticks and proceeded to make the four of us a cup of tea.
Our cousins tracked one down for us as a present but it's in the shed and we've never used it.
Maybe the Bath meet....?!!!
If you feel like a challange at making one yourself have a look here, plenty to choose from:thumb:
great picture , :thumb:
our kids just love the outdoors doing simple things ... much better than any Wii
