Hey, everyone! The days are getting longer, the sunshine is a little warmer, and soon the Spring storms will be a distant memory. I am so looking forward to this years' camping and tramping season! Time to put my money where my mouth is. And to see if the money I spent on gear, etc, was worth it.

I have been having doubts recently about the amount of gear I have. What will I end up using? What will be surplus to my requirements? What will end up being my final reliable gear that I take on a regular basis? Pre-season jitters, I suppose. And I still have to sort out my dehydrating to make up pre-packaged meals. Aaaarggh!

Well, have fun out there. Bless somebody with a smile.

How have you got on Rania? How has the gear worked out?

I haven't been out since before Christmas and am getting the itch, I have next mon,tues, wednesday off so am planning a trip to try out skills up Mount Pirongia.

I got some gear for Christmas and need to see if it stands up.

Going to take rifle too and check some clearings further in from where I camp.

What foods do you dehydrate?
