When I started hiking further afield around the state, it was a challenge to bring along not just snacks and lunch but have a way to brew up a hot drink.   It all goes to keeping costs down. This little kit is something I have been working on for the last few months, it is something […]

digestive bits

In case you were wondering (and god knows why you would) both acquisitions do exactly what it says on the in. The Waring burner doesn’t cycle…i suspect this is the model they use in all those in store demonstrations..the flip side is that it stays hot after you shut it off, so i have to […]
