camping gaz stove with calor gas cylinders by Stephen[_2_]
Hello, Sorry if this is a FAQ but how easy is it to use a camping gaz stove with a calor gas cylinder? I'm about to buy a camping gaz stove and from what I had read here, camping gaz is abundant in Europe but not the UK. Near me there are several petrol stations and DIY stores all selling calor gas cylinders.

MSR Dragonfly - running stove at low fuel levels by Peter Chant[_2_]
Chaps, I have an MSR Dragonfly. With about 200ml of fuel remaining in a 590ml bottle it seems to pick up mainly air rather than fuel. It seems that the dangly thing on the flexible hose on the pump assembly picks up from the upmost end and hence cannot pick up the last of the fuel. I would expect that the stove would always miss the last few dregs of fuel but a whole third of a bottle being...

re-proofing a jacket. by Clint Sharp
Simple question, maybe a not so simple answer. After machine washing a sprayway jacket it's no longer waterproof. Any recommendations for re-waterproofing it based on your experience? -- Clint Sharp

MrBlueSkye says Toodle pip and goodbye. by MrBlueSkye
For many years (since Micronet days) I have been bouncing around the Newsgroups. To all of you who know me or have heard of me I bid you a fond farewell in advance. Unfortunately itís looking like MrBlueSkye will be clocking off for good shortly. A recent emergency visit and hospital stay in my local cardiac unit has revealed that I have an Aortic root aneurism that has billowed to 60mm...

Self Inflating mats - opinions by Paul C
Hi Are these a lot more comfortable than the foam 'Karrimat' types or just a bit more comfortable? Is there a lot of comfort difference between a 3cm and a 5cm thick one. Are they mostly foam or air? Will be used by 5'9'' adults of about 10-12 stone on grass . Cannot really get the feel of them in their bags and cannot find anywhere with them already on display.(Hampshire). Going to be used...

Wiring of European plugs - live/neutral?? by Lobster
I'm in the middle of wiring up a cable for an electrical hook up to be used while camping in France. I have a French 3-pin plug bought there on a previous visit, but in opening it up I find there's absolutely no indication which of the two power pins is live and neutral. Doesn't it matter? I will be using the cable with an RCD device; won't that object and trip out if the wiring's the...

Tent Comparison by Graham Drabble[_2_]
Hi all, I'm looking to replace my tent. For the last 6 years I've had a Vaude Hogan which I've been very happy with. However the groundsheet is now wearing thin and is letting water through. The tent is used throughout the year (including mid winter) for anything up to 7 nights at a time. Only ever used by one person but I do often have a lot of kit.

Disabled cars + minibus stolen HELP PLEASE by Dribbler[_2_]
Help please! Our minibus full of disabled and caravan/camping equipment was stolen from Royston, Herts last night. It is very identifiable; Its a large white LDV convoy (pre-conversion) with 'Triple AAA travel' in big blue letters down the sides (we never got round to removing the lettering). It's an 'L' reg and ends in UEB. 'Useless Engine and Body' we used to say, but she was beautiful and...

where to view family tents in london by [email protected]
Hello. I am interested in buying a family size tent; however, I'm having trouble viewing any, and I'm reluctant to buy without having seen a few first. Where is the best place in (or near) London to view erected family size tents? I don't really want to turn up to a camping shop and spend half an hour putting up a tent - I'd rather go somewhere which has them up already. Thanks. -D.

The media encouraging camping by R D S[_2_]
As people tighten their belts I often hear camping recommended by the media folks instead of expensive foreign holidays. Is this a good thing? I think not, there won't be a quiet field left in the land! I think they are talking about it today on R2's Jeremy Vine show. It might be worth us all emailing in with anecdotes about how **** it is.
