OK, we're camping and for the last hour it's been tipping it down with no sign of stopping.

I want to cook our tea (rice + pre-done chicken casserole) in the tent - Khyam 4 berth so big and tall in the main bit. dp thinks one of us should cook outside in the rain so as to avoid condensation and dangerous flames in tent.

what would you do? she agreed I could start the thread and go with the MN vote!

answers asap please 'cos I'm getting hungry...

I would cook outside with an umbrella because I'm a scaredy cat. Or we might compromise by doing it in the doorway under the porch.

How come you are on MN in a tent, anyway? [impressed emoticon]

Outside! Scary video's on Youtube of Tents on fire......

Or - get a Takeaway!

on my palm! tut - really? I haven't got an umbrella...

need to start cooking soon though - and the rain's going nowhere...

What sort of cooker is it? My trangia will stay alight in the rain.
