Got the builders in

We're in the middle of a build. We've been squashed into the first floor whilst the ground floor, including the garage (a.k.a. the bat cave), is being "remodelled" (to you thats knocked down and started again). It'll be mid July before we have a working kitchen again. That has its drawbacks, epecially for a young family, but looking at the temporary facilities I'm left wondering why we're going to such effort and expense: the Optimus Stella and the Primus Gravity EF have been going head to head for three weeks now and doing just fine. The former is a boiling machine par excellence, the latter is to be prefered when it comes to frying sausages.


  1. Buying new gas canisters is a great excuse to keep going back to the gear shop!

  2. Hmm. Shoul have bought less efficient burners.

  3. A house isn't exactly an ultralightweight shelter...

  4. What? not even when the whole rear gable has been removed?
