Welcome!

Managed through carelesness to lose years of posts so it's time to start again - hey ho.
Plus, happily, I've been diverted recently by great trips to China and South Africa. Back on course now - sort of!


How optimistic was that comment! Almost a full year with no attention paid to content. The shame of it!
No prizes for guessing what will be top of the 2013 New Year resolutions.

Cool clear water


SteriPEN’s (www.steripen.com) new Sidewinder is the first ever hand-powered, battery-free UV water purifier that filters water at the crank of a handle anywhere. Campers can now purify 1 litre of water taken from lakes or streams in just 90 seconds and 3 easy steps thanks to a UV system that destroys water-borne bacteria, viruses and protozoa.  Portable, packable, lightweight, eco-friendly with no parts to replace or filters to clean.
