When using a billy over an open fire, does the black charcoal that forms on the outside make a mess in your pack? Huh

Roll Eyes Think green........recycle one of those super market plastic bags  Wink

Incidently,  a blackened billy will heat/boil faster than a clean shiny one  Wink.....plus you can put your fingers under a well blackened billy to tip it for pouring without getting them burnt  Wink Wink Wink

If you want a really liteweight couple of days then this is all you need for a hot evening meal & a
couple of brew ups  Smiley

I've recently found a youghurt and muesli mix done by Vogels. Nice feed and you just add an equal amount of water.
Last time I tried those flat white coffee mixes which worked well enough.
Can go for an extended trip with just the cup, cooker and desert spoon. Dont need any milk either.

Awesome thread NIMROD.  Cool Cool

May I suggest that you detail the contents of your first aid kit as well? We have had many threads in the past asking what people should have in theirs.

You probably won't be able to edit your original post now so just tack it on the end and I'll move it. Same goes for anything else you want to add. If I forget, just PM me to remind me.
  

Dear Noah,
We could have sworn you said the ark wasn't leaving till 5.
Sincerely, Unicorns

I like the individually wrapped prunes it may stop me eating them all at once, also the film cases with Voltaren & Panadine

Cheers

It's a big orange plastic bag.....not much bulkier tham a standard survival blanket. they condensate up but in my opinion are a lot more robust and give better shelter from the elements than a tin foil sheet.......and they don't deteriate like survival blankets do  Smiley
