By opening the slide valve on the InDeflate unit, you can release air from two tyres simultaneously. Conversely, when the link

A big, heavy knife may be good for batoning (splitting) wood, but not preparing game or whittling fire sticks. Whereas a small knife comes into its own during more delicate tasks. But what makes a good bushcraft knife – a fixed blade, or folding blade? A big knife or small knife? Let’s try and unravel the ins and outs of buying a knife. The Categories Folding Knife

When touring midsummer in the 40-50 degree heat of Namibia or the Karoo, or simply taking a lunch-break by the roadside, you’ll need some shade. Having an awning that’s quick and easy to set up, yet durable and sturdy enough to take nature’s beating, may mean the difference between crying, sunburned kids and a happy holiday. An awning’s principal work is providing shade, but one can have several functions. With the addition of sides, an awning will help you weather a dust-storm, a downpour, and even swarms of bugs. As ever, there are many different types of awnings to choose
