    I find the little caribiners have 100 uses, also a gadget for SWAMBO to hang dish cloths and other odds and ends where she wants. Hang off trailer, off branches, off rope, clip 'n go.

    Like the simple little things.

    Someone needs to take all these tips and compile them into a nice list.

    I got a USB port for my dual battery. Many modern electronic toys can be charged through USB and it is a lot cheaper than an inverter.

    I considered fitting USB in the trailer but opted for two cigarette lighter sockets instead. Works perfectly for cell phones, cameras and torches.

    Hear hear! Wetwipes can save you a lot of water! We never go overlanding without enough packs of wetwipes!

    Thank you Swaer! This must be one of the easiest, simplest, most water & cost effective methods to clean yourself in a waterless place like the CKGR. On your suggestion I bought one and tested it. It is very effective and after 2 persons showered, we barely used more than 1 litre of water. Fantastic tip!

    A great caming tip would be the GPS coordinates for Cory's camp site. That way we could avoid it.

    Default Missing Mattress Plug...

    Bottle + Blow up Mattress - Any Questions?

    Also works better and loses less air than the standard plug + there is almost always a bottle of something to use, never left without a plug again....

    And no, it doesn't pop out and let you down when you need it

    There are 2 of us who go camping.
    Checkers (used to be from Makro) sells a table with collapsible plastic top & scissor legs that folds up very nicely. (We have used the same one for 10 years). it weighs virtually nothing, and costs about the same ( R100.00)
    Why pay at least double for the next option and even more for something that uses bigger volume, weighs far more and costs the earth (& Mars).
    Life starts
    where the comfort-zone ends.
