    Re: Fridges that shut down automatically

    Agreed, if I was in my thirties I would not hesitate to purchase, but at my age I am not going to buy a fridge that will outlive me. My kids can buy their own. ;D

    Re: Fridges that shut down automatically

    DID YOU KNOW: National Luna was the first off-road fridge manufacturer in the world to design and develop a dual-compartment unit (fridge and freezer) that could run on a single compressor.

    Re: Keeping cool in a tent - tips?

    I always find keeping the sun off the tent is the most effective method, otherwise you just blow hot air around. Reflective fly sheets or at least some way of keeping the sun off the tent directly.

    This sounds just like what we know as Jack's pan. It was indeed Jannie Strumpher's old hunting concession. I remember that Trooper and a few other guys tracked down the Kgotla to go and pay.
