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 ...
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 ?
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
go on Terry , get bidding, you know you want one ...
naw already carry leccy and gas one :thumb:I can always drink water or pop notice I did not say beer
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
Defiantly not drinking from sh1t creek 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
