What do you do for cleaning the dixie after porridge when not much water about?

Very good question  Embarrassed..... I've overlooked including a long handled pot scrubber in the photo's. Goes with me everywhere. I'll rectify that right now
Clean the pot straight away before everything becomes dried & crusty or if waters not a problem let it soak while your out hunting & it will scrub out nice and easy  Wink

In the Summer months or if water is going to be a real big problem then i'll substitute the porridge with Breakfast Meusli & milk powder  Smiley

What's in the pouch on the belt? And Berocca - what for?  Huh

A $2 shop disposable poncho ( works in conjuntion with the survival tube if your lost or injured)... Foul weather sems to be the most popular time for getting lost  Grin
A 1300 degree refilable bomb proof, waterproof & windproof lighter
More firelighting rubber ( fire is your biggest friend when lost or injured  and cold & wet )
A second small & basic first aid kit to suppliment the one in my Pikau
A spare key to my 4x4

Berroca is just to replace a few basic vitamins & minerals after exercising. You could use a sports drink like "Replace"

What model macpac is that?

Macpac is a Ravine.......no longer made so I brought another one when I heard they were stopping making it and it's hanging in the shed for when the 1st one wears out  Grin but it's not showing any signs of wear yet after 5-6 hard years  Cool


Good thinking! You probably wont need to use the new one for a good 4-5 years though Grin

I've recently brought a macpac cascade 75L, the only issue I have with it is there are far too many adjustment straps... that leaves a string of long tails hanging off my back.  Nothing that a bit of ducktape or thick rubber bad/clips wont fix though  Wink.

Looks like this, but with a matte canvas material (much likes yours) and the side panels are dark grey/charcoal colour not blue.

I just use Bic disposable lighters for everyday things but the one in my belt pouch is a $50 jobby, refillable & throws a 1300 degree C blue flame that you can solder with. Also windproof & to a degree, waterproof  Smiley
Without a doubt it's THE best bit of gear in my survival kit  Wink

I recently tried to get another one but the distributor/importer is going through a marriage break up and not bringing any more into the country. There are other similar types of lighters out there
though.
