Good if you're saving the pennies!!



Thanks for this, went in today and bought myself one. Labelled as £2.99 but were £2 also packs of fuel are half price at £1.50!

We have always used one at Download with great results... We have 2 mess tins from the pound shop and a High Gear Hexi stove from Go Outdoors. I also use the frying pan from my Trangia, as from 2 cubes I can heat enough water for 2 cuppas in the morning, and with the frying pan balanced on top can cook enough bacon for 2 butties (better than £5+ for a bacan buttie every morning!)
I didnt know Trangias were aloud (earlier post) they are a thousand times better than a Hexi Stove (Id get butties n cuppas for half the campsite off one! :romance-grouphug: ) but at Download theyre not aloud :angry-extinguishflame: ?

Sooo excited now...tickets have arrived... only prob is Ive lost my wellies and our flag that we update every year!!

Supposed to cook in the custom built pits. Last year most cooked next to their tents, but this year the cooking areas are supposed to be better.
