What's on your Camping Christmas list?

I really don't need anything else, and nothing more will fit in the car.

But I would like a good canvas tarp.

What about you!

I would love a new tent and have my eye on this but doubt it will happen for a while. Lovely new tent grin

Looks good, hillbilly. I like the little rain porch over the side door. Makes all the difference.

I was wondering about a Dutch Pot / Dutch oven to use on the fire, too.

I have bought new head torches for the kids. We have about 5 in the camping bag and every time we go I end up cursing over the lack of effectiveness of at least 3 of them so I have finally thrown the crap ones away :-)

I have a firepit, and a new chair on mine, ds has a marshmallow toasting kit on his

I do not need anything for camping.

<<Immediately clicks on all links>>

We have to replace our EHU unit which broke as we were striking on the last day this year. But that's not very rock and roll really.

I just want DH to confirm his holiday so I can get booking sites!

New tarp to make my porch area a bit bigger. Possibly some new extendable poles for it.

profpoopsnagle Sat 19-Nov-16 13:06:59

I've ordered the cooking accessories to go with a kelly kettle for DH. He's had the kettle for years.

And I have put a Big Red Fire Bucket on my list!

Blu Sun 20-Nov-16 08:23:19

Ooh, does it say Fire on it? Is it metal or plastic?

cece Sun 20-Nov-16 08:30:54

I may have bought a trangia for DH to give me. grin

Blu Sun 20-Nov-16 08:41:16

Heh heh!
I may be acquiring a canvas tarp by the same means grin

FantasticBeasts Sun 20-Nov-16 09:11:08

DH wants a new lightweight tent. Definitely a 'thneed'.

profpoopsnagle Tue 22-Nov-16 17:46:32

Having researched the price of Big Red Fire buckets, I may be getting a silver one instead, and putting the stickers on myself! grin

The Kelly kettle accessories arrived today and I am very pleased with them- super cute.

For those of you that hanker after a Cobb, they have some good deals on for Christmas, albeit you have to buy a set.

Oooh, look: for all your camping friends www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scout-inspired-theme-charm-pin-brooch-badge-camp-camping-cook-first-aid-QM/291595485472?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D38661%26meid%3Df01e508ba29c418685038366669000d5%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D291564994971

Love those Blu grin

Blu Wed 23-Nov-16 20:11:00

But Prof, then it won't be red, and it will be used like an ordinary bucket and no-one will admire it! These are only £15 without a id. Though I like the lid www.thesafetycentre.co.uk/store/fire_extinguishers_and_fire_blankets/fire_bucket_range/metal_fire_bucket_flat_bottom_3745_00.php?gclid=CPCHz4bXv9ACFckaGwodjH8ApQ

(I note it says this bucket is for sand. were you thinking sand, or water? I generally have a very crappy old bucket with water in it near our fire).

profpoopsnagle Wed 23-Nov-16 21:32:42

Yes, it needs to be red and most definitely say FIRE on it. Otherwise there's no point. I was wondering if it was possible to paint a bucket.

But thanks for that link- that's a better price than I have found. We had a fireman come and check our extinguishers at work today, I should have cornered him to ask where the best value buckets can be found.

I'll put water in it, and I think a lid too. I might also need a hi-vis jacket with Air Raid Warden....

Blu Wed 23-Nov-16 23:29:02

Yellow oilskin overalls?

Blu Wed 30-Nov-16 13:38:23

Just bringing this salamanderstoves.com/product/toas-tite-camping-festival-grill/ to the campfire pow wow.

hillbilly Fri 02-Dec-16 12:45:04

Love that Blu. I have ordered 2 for me the kids grin

harderandharder2breathe Mon 05-Dec-16 17:55:41

Blow up bed is on my list after I was jealous of everyone else at scout camp in the summer! The site was previously crops so rather lumpy bumpy!

SixthSenseless Thu 08-Dec-16 07:40:07

Have they arrived hillbilly? Because in your link it shows 3 for the price of 2 so you might not have to nick the kids' .

It was a cheap money off deal when I ordered. I love the box.

SixthSenseless Thu 08-Dec-16 21:42:21

Right. Dutch pot definitely on my list. A new way to cook on the fire, stews, slo-cooks, even baking is promised as possible.

hillbilly Fri 09-Dec-16 13:10:29

Sixthsenseless - they have arrived and look fab! The offer I got was 2 for £19.95.
