I've emailed that link to see if they would ship to the UK and whether it's not going to bump the cost up more than I can afford. The backpack is a seriously nice one. There's one going on a bushcraft site here for £55.00!

I picked mine up for $21, but I had to weed through a few bad ones before on the rack before I was able to find this nice one that I bought.

Big advocate of the alcohol stoves.  I have a Trangia which IMO is really good.  I also have a mini stove that runs off mixed fuel canister ( isobutane ).

I've had the tuna can type stoves and like using them but I enjoy cooking over a fire more. It's a bit more challenging but I enjoy it! Maybe a good quality stove like you mentioned would change my views, but I'm content currently with cooking over a fire

I might piece together 3 pieces of metal grate to make a small grill to set my pot on though. Would be much easier than making a tripod every time I head into the woods

As far a waxing it your rucksack, I use bees' wax.

I have been using greenland wax with varying results.
I wonder if the liquid stuff you use on waxed jackets might be better ? :think:

Got out to use my new gear today. Here's some quick pics:


I definitely see a need now to wax my pack. Here is a before and after pic of the woods, so needless to say my pack got soaked!

I'm currently at school, which has an unbelievable amount of public land just 10 minutes away. Back home, there isn't much public land. I'll be trying to cram as much time in the woods as I can before I have to head home for the year. Let's hope the weather stays nice!

Not trying to put any ideas in your head or anything, but about 25 or 30 years ago Cody Lundin was a college student who couldn't afford an apartment so he decided to live in a bush camp in the desert and he's made quite the career out of it since then.

Haha not that I wouldn't love to try it, but it probably wouldn't work that well considering how cold it gets up here for most of the school year... If anything, is live in my ice fishing house for the whole winter

Got out today and snapped a couple pics:
