Firing up the Kelly Kettle

Thanks to my former colleagues at Newcastle University, one our new travelling companions in our motorhome has been a Kelly Kettle which they gave to me as a thoughtful leaving gift along with two thermos mugs which are getting regular use. So far in our trip we've stayed on aires which are normally just car parks for motorhomes so I haven't had the opportunity to fire up the kettle as camping activities like sitting outside are frowned upon.  However, this week in the alpine forest location we've been enjoying and with a sunny afternoon to myself, as Esther was recovering from her tummy bug, I got the chance to make fire. Using some of the skills I acquired on our bushcraft day in Britain, I meandered around the forest gathering tinder and fuel that would catch a spark. Stating with some fluffy seed pods, building to dried grass and increasingly thick pine sticks I managed to get a decent flame going and got the kettle on.





Just wanted to say thanks for the tea guys.
