I filled a 4,5 kilo gas bottle today - R 171.

At first I thought it is getting a bit rough, and then I decided to be thankful that we no longer have to rely on gas for our lighting requirements whilst camping.

I can recall those huge fishermans lamps screwed onto a longish extention pipe on top of the gas bottle. Two long  nights with a bright light and the gas bottle needed replenishment. Our first caravan even had gas lights fitted inside. Thankfully I have LED lights these days.

It is not how old one is that matters, it is how one is old that matters. One do not stop playing because one is old – one is old because one stopped playing.

Soos jy daar se' Swanie, kampering is nie meer goedkoop nie, maar bly lekker! Ek het ons ou wa LED ligte ingesit, en hulle is baie meer doeltreffend EN hulle kragverbruik is heelwat minder. Ons is op die oomblik op Ilanga, en hier is jy op koopkrag, so jy is maar versigtig wat jy gebruik en hoe jy dit gebruik. Die braai werk natuurlik oortyd! Ek gebruik net gas vir my "fire-stick" en om potjie mee te maak in die swart pot, so dit hou lank.

A happy life doesn't just happen, it's something you create yourself...

Campers spend millions to live like a homeless person.

Ja Paul, ons mense doen maar snaakse dinge😐.  Ek onthou nog hoe 'n 4.5Kg bottel gas met die yskas net sowat drie dae gehou het.

Use gas for all our cooking apart from braais when camping. Don't know what the kg of cylinder but our 300mm high cylinder lasts about 3 weeks and we do tea a few times daily and veggies most nights.
