My New Home.
A couple of days back my new tent arrived from Sea To Summit, so I have a new home for this expedition.

My one and only custom made camp light just morphed into three almost identical clones with one noticeable change.
On my first attempt to cross the Torres Straits I’d been told about the strong ocean currents that run through the straits, but no one could tell me what direction they were running.
Charging my Camplight.
I built my camplight with it being powered by a lithium battery, which have many benefits over other battery types, except for charging.

This is my latest, must have item for my kayaking, the X-Bowl, or should I say around the campsite.
