Lol I'm asian. I have about 4 of these floating about already for the asian steam boats!

Well done....I have an amusing little story regarding these stoves.

Wife and I were coming down the Stuart Hwy a few years ago and decided to stop at one of the roadhouses for lunch, mainly because there was a fair bit of shade under some big trees.

Sat down at one of the outside tables with our sandwiches and as we did, a middle aged couple pulled up and got out with a few things and asked if they could share our (very large) table.

No probs, we said...so they proceeded to unpack a portable stove and a kettle with water.......making a cuppa.

The guy set the stove up and then....turned it on and lit the thing with a match.

I asked him why he was using matches and he said that's how he lights it.

The look on his face when I showed him how to do it with the knob was priceless.

Their kids had given them this stove 6 months ago and they thought using matches was the way.

That's funny.

Must admit that I've been guilty of finding out the "right way" to use certain things months/years after the fact.

Everywhere we camp, have camped, the grass is already dead in the 'main' campsite area.

Noisy. HUH?

We tried the interlocking mats. No way we could get them down, to cover a whole 'annex' area in 5 mins. But, a tarp, rolled out and pegged down was no hassle, so our only method now.

Each to their own.


Noisy.
You know the "scrunch scruch" noise

Cheap thin tarps more so than the heavy duty ones... It's the camp site security system ;)

I think I stated this before. Many caravan parks & camp sites will not accept shade cloth or tarps as annex  flooring. This info came from more than one Grey Nomads forum. They are invaluable for up to date info.
