    Yip we have one of them those. They work well but the secret is low gas flame. They take a while to heat up and then suddenly they are HOT and you burn the toast and your fingers.

    14 and 15 might be more private. There is absolutely nothing separating 23 from no 24. And 23 is not as big as it looks on the map. There is shade though.

    Some very valid points, Roadman.

    For what it is worth, I loved Serondela, not a fan of Ihaha but not due to the robberies.

    Re: Water requirements for wild camping

    We do and normally in copious amounts. Never thought that I would not want a beer on a hot day, but it did happen. Alcohol, like coffee, is a diuretic and will make dehydration worse.
