So last week I had a bit of luck whilst checking out eBay and managed to grab a 4.25l Dutch oven.

For the family I think I need the next size up as well, so will be keeping my eyes open for the 8l one.
The price was good so happy start, good delivery as well. Will update the post later with eBay shop details.
Anyhow, tomorrow will be the day to clean it down and season it......there's a few different guides and videos available.
Pretty much settled on using vegetable oil......looking forward to cooking some tasty meals on it.

1. De-skunk pets. A handful rubbed on Fido's coat neutralizes the lingering odor.

2. Hide stains on paving. This Old House technical editor Mark Powers absorbs wet paint spatters on cement by sprinkling ash directly on the spot; it blends in with a scuff of his boot,

3. Enrich compost. Before the organic compound get applied to soil, enhance its nutrients by sprinkling in a few ashes, says the host of radio's You Bet Your Garden, Mike McGrath. Adding too much, though, ruins the mix.

4. Block garden pests. Spread evenly around garden beds, ash repels slugs and snails.

5. Melt ice. TOH...

Headed to the beach today, taking advantage of us all having the day off.

Nothing better than sitting back and having a brew on the beach.
I can highly recommend the Trangia kit, it's extremely lightweight and packs into a compact unit. The burner is storm proof and runs on methalted spirits.

Couple of new additions to the kit.

Laplander folding saws are well known for being a valuable tool, but a quality axe more so. This is a Hutlafors trekking axe, hand crafted but considerably cheaper than a Gransfors but I hear the quality is not be sniffed at all and can provide a high quality edge.

Stalking is one of the most exhilarating tactics when fishing for carp. I love to do a bit of stalking during my fishing sessions and where I fish is fairly quiet for other people fishing so I can go off stalking for an hour or so if I want. The problem with many commercial waters is that it’s difficult to stalk for carp because there's so many pegs taken up and many carp anglers look on it as poaching 'their' fish. Maybe this is the reason why many anglers don’t seem to do much stalking these days. Whatever the reason, stalking is a brilliant way to catch numerous carp, especially the bigger...

Everyone who has used tarps for anything have at one time or another had to deal with broken or missing grommets.

I picked up a few of these before last hunting season, and new they would find some use, but they actually found a lot of use following a high wind storm that tore our kitchen area tarp to shreds.

These things made it extremely easy to get everything tied back down, and very securely as well.

Very easy to use, these are definitely worth having in your camping or hunting gear. For survival gear, these could be used to turn a survival blanket into a lean to for protection from...

Picked up a new (to me) air rifle recently , a Weihrauch HW90 it's a .177 which I've never had before only .22 it came fitted with a walther 3-9x44 night pro scope, which by all accounts is a good quality scope.

The gun is a Springer which for me equals simplicity.
Theoben's unique gas-ram seems to have great reviews, so looking forward to me and the lad putting a few tins of pellets through it.

Now just need to get some shooting permission on land near me and we can get out rabbiting

Picked this book up today - The essential camping cookbook from the The works bookshop, at £2.99 it was a bargain.

It got lots of original recipes and some more adventurous ones.

The book has guides on how to cook on conventional camp fires, pit ovens and using improvised utensils.

Can't wait to get outside and try some of them out.

Do you have any great books that are worth a read?
