But carting all your own grub and cooking gear as well..... no thanks. Maybe it's because I had enough of it in my working week back when I was driving long distance.

    Always amuses me how folk grumble about the price of rally breakfasts and pub meals, or the need to support the rally, then proceed to dig out a ton of supermarket food (half of which gets thrown away cos either they brought too much, they burned it or flies landed on it) and waste valuable beer and natter time pissing about doing what they did at home only with much less convenience. Then at the end, having to piss about even further washing up and cleaning everything ready for the next meal. It's leisure time, FFS.


    I'm well aware that there are some of us who have raised outdoor cooking to an art form, enjoy it and are very good at it; but it ain't for me.
    im with ya Kev even though hot dogs in the flask are very good especially when we have walked a few fells in the deepest of winter, but at rallies we always use the facilities as I have previously said i'm anti car at rallies its my opinion so don't bite my head off coz each to there own and im old school so rallies for me are for bikes and bikers and it gets up my nose when folk arrive on a bike and there other half arrives in the car fully laden with huge tent and a full range of Tesco finest if its your bag then fine but it aint mine

    Ah yes! the little square burner! I remember reading a book by someone from a very special forcie forward observer team (think it was something like "148 Meiktila Battery", they hide behind the lines and spot for long range artillery) - anyway, he wrote that while he shivered up a high spot in the Falklands buried in moss he could see down in the valley loads of tiny pricks of light which were the Paras all brewing up!

    ha ha i can believe that Paul the best thing to do was get your mate to brew up and stay about 20ft from him so if a sneeky sniper took a well aimed shot or if the big guns picked up the location then your out of the way and if he copped it there was a good chance the hexi was still brewing the tea it made good sense and it saved cleaning your mess tins

    oh the tin of processed cheese guaranteed no shit for a month, i remember being on excercise at Thetford and the 4 tonner came over the hill nordies laden with breaky and the breaky was egg bloody banjos I hate eggs so I sat down beneath a few trees for a sulk and there just where I sat was a tin of curried chicken which obviously had been left from a previous exercise oh what joy it lit up my day like a shamoolie in the night sky
