Free durable water carrier

For carrying water it is hard to beat a recycled carbonated soft drink bottle.  They are very tough as they are designed to withstand gas under pressure.  They are food grade, they are free and they come in different sizes.  To avoid any possibly flavour carry over start with a soda water or mineral water example.

On my home scales a 1.25 litre empty coke bottle weighs only 40g.

Camp Specialties Mini Hiking Stool review: 

I purchased the Mini Hiking Stool directly from the Camp Specialties web site.  it was a fast turnaround to get a postage quote from USA to Australia, paid with PayPal and quick delivery.

I recently took my Mini Hiking Stool on a 10km through walk.  I used the stool on a number of stop overs on the trek to rest and it certainly took the weight off.  It is amazing piece of technology.  Simple in execution, it folds to be very compact and slips into a side pocket on my backpack alongside my walking pole.  This is a luxury, but from my perspective a must have one - it will stay part of my kit.  I recommend this is a "must have" item.

Pocket AM/FM Transistor radio with extender aerial. Powered by 2 AAA batteries.  This is the radio I picked up to listed to the 2010 Australian Federal election results while walking at Mapleton Forest in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk.  I had trouble with reception but that may have been location related.  It did the job and was quite light but there may be better sound/tuning quality options.

Weight with batteries is a creditable 88g
