Sleeping bags = 5
Sleeping mats = 5 (+ 2 foam cell bedrolls)
Stoves = 8 (+ homemade soda can stoves) Bought a new one last night - 'Primus Express Spider'
Again so many torches! (now mostly Cree!!)

Only 2 power units though

A lot of my stuff is used for Mountain Marathons (ultralight stuff) so when even lighter stuff comes out I have to get it!
Forgot one - 9 tents :woohoo:

I've been thinking of getting one but I was wondering if you could do away with the 4 legs and just sit the chair on the floor where you've pulled them out from?

For using inside the tent you need a Thermarest chair kit that converts a Thermarest sleeping mat into a comfortable chair with no pointy bits to cause any damage.

and no, I don't work for either Thermarest or Go Outdoors :)

I use my Helinox inside the tent.

Take two plastic tubes (pipes). Pull off rubber tips from chair. Mark where the legs would fit inside tubes - drill homes. Push tubes onto legs.

Sorted. (thumbs)

Now you have a bar running between legs at front and same at back.

ADDITION - when you drill, make sure it's a tight fit for the chair legs into the plastic. Otherwise they'll fall off everytime you lift the chair up........ (thumbs)

Good idea about the tube for the helinox chair as I have 2 that I forgot to mention. If we are now talking none bike related camping kit then my list would become embarrassingly long as I have far too many bits of essential equipment ( gadgets) for the VW camper.

I think I'll be doing the same for when I'm using the chair on damp grass where it can dig in and damage the chair by loading one leg more than the others.
