    Default Gil Gilpatrick Trip Boxes

    I have gone overboard again. Really like the Gil Gilpatrick book, Building Outdoor Gear. Started with 2 food boxes which went with us on our fly in hunt and now have built the pantry/tool box as well. These thing make great camp furniture and really help organize gear. I keep them semi-packed and am now able to get out canoeing in an hour. Raining this week but it has really got me back out on the rivers.

    Two Tables, one for drinks one for our porridge!

    Video if interested, shows the pantry box (My Favourite) but Warning, contains dancing.

    In the pictures those are two Optimus 111T stoves that are no longer made. Quiet burner and they burn gas, kerosene and with a different jet and restricter Alcohol. Great classic Swedish stoves that were once sold off as surplus and now rare as hen's teeth. The video features an Optimus 22B. Powerful and useful as a Coleman 2 burner in less than half the package size. Not sure why great gear often is no longer made.
