Anyone found a good AA battery solar charger by James Harris
For a camping trip I'm looking for a way to recharge NiMH AA cells. I've found many available solar chargers for AA batteries on the Maplin web site but it's not clear which are best - i.e. which ones charge most efficiently. Light weight would also be good and the ability to charge maybe four batteries at a time from the sun. Has anyone already found a good charger available in the UK? James

Family Tent - pitchable by one person! by beamer
Hi All, Can anyone recommend a tent (~6 berth or greater) that can be pitched by just one person? If it makes any difference we are fairweather campers (whenever possible!!). The tent I would have if pitching wasn't a consideration is a Coleman Weathermaster XL. It has a huge living space which is very important

Wild Camping in Norfolk by user
I've just had a lovely time in the woods and forests of Norfolk. Pitched my Hennessy Hammock in a couple of minutes. It was easy peasy. No trouble from anyone. Nobody knew I was there and if they had, nobody would have cared. I could leave my stuff and walk around nearby villages no problem. I really enjoyed it. 2 sole troubles were - 1. finding two trees just the right space apart - not...

Private Parking in London or its Suburbs by R_Suter
Hi all! We are a Swiss couple and live between Lucerne and Zurich. From the 4th until the 18th of July 09 we do a trip to England wit our motorhome. During this time we intend to stay two or three days in London. Now we are looking for a private facility to park our motorhome during this time. Electricity would be great but is not nessecary. We would be grateful for any suggestions.

inflatable vs self inflating beds by anern
Hi, I'm cycle touring and currently have an inflatable mattress from tesco which doesn't give me a good nights sleep. The air seems to shift away from the points where my weight is. Should they be at a high pressure ? I'm considering a self inflating matress, since they look just like stuffed mats when they are inflated but logically, they would suffer from the same problem. Is there a...

Rejuvenated - back from the desert. by [email protected]
There were just 3 trees and nothing else. From horizon to horizon flat stony desert in Australia’s Outback. Explorer Sturt in 1845: ‘...the most cheerless and the most forbidding of any landscapes our eyes had wandered over…' No Mcdonalds. No tourists. Not even electrons - no internet. I love that spot. Used to months of re-active thinking following prompts from the computer, my thoughts were at...

Trangia burner by Rick Savery
Not used a trangia burner (or any other meths burner) before so have a couple of questions - any basic instructions for filling and using on the web or elsewhere ? Also, I have some Greenheat gel sachets and wondered if anyone had slopped this into a trangia burner and lit it ? Was it successful ? Thanks for any help and advice Rick

3-Way Cooler Safety by Mick[_4_]
Hi All, Just spotted this; http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/45l-3-way-fridge/COREACED7501 And have a question about where it can be used with gas ie inside or outside the tent. Where I am obviously coming from is whether it is safe to have running inside the tent whilst operating on gas??? Also I assume that it can be used with any gas as long as appropriate regulator is used??

C&CC Clubcare Motor Insurance by Gunslinger[_3_]
Does anyone else have experience of using C&CC Clubcare to insure their car (not motorhome, where they apparently still use the dreaded Equity Red Star)? They use different brokers now - MCE, based in Northamptonshire who I believe mainly specialise in motorbike insurance. However the standard of administration remains particularly poor, even by C&CC standards: 1. Over a month to send out...

Where rivers flow upstream by [email protected]
Greetings, it was in the Great Artesian Basin, Australia’s driest and hottest and strangest spot. I camped at Eyre Creek. A tiny sprig floated very, very slowly from right to left. I put up tent, played with dog Rusty, cooked a meal. Then a gentle breeze came up, and that sprig, like an old friend, came back again - floating very, very slowly from left to right. With an average gradient of...

Akto poles - how have they changed? by Judith
Has anyone bought a Hilleberg Akto tent recently? I've just bought a replacement pole section, by mail order, and the new one looks different and does not fit. The shop had warned me that the poles had changed in the last year but I did make it clear that I needed the old type. I'm wondering if I've been sent the new style or if I've just been unlucky with the manufacturing tolerances. I...

solar charge for leisure battery? by Stephen[_2_]
Hello, I was advised that a leisure battery might discharge if left unused for some time and I was told that a solar charger would top-up the charge and prevent this. What size solar panel would I need? Does the output of the panel have to be a certain ration of the capacity of the battery? If so, what's the magic formula? BTW can you recommend a good make of leisure battery and any...
