Light Weight Hikers Blog proudly stocks the e2e Gram Weenie Pro Stoves

As part of trying to spread a lighter weight style of hiking here in Australia I have made an arrangement with a US based cottage manufacturer to sell his light weight stoves here. End2End Trail Supply’s owner George Carr has been perfecting light weight alcohol stoves for many years and am very pleased to be working with him, these stoves are great. The Gram Weenie Pro which can be see from the link here; weighs an amazing 19 grams. For those curious on how these work George has a youtube video; How to light GWP YouTube To keep things simple and cheap, I am selling the Gram Weenie Pro Stove, windshield, primer pan and Fuel bottle for $20.00 plus the cost of shipping anywhere in Australia.

Bush Tucker Book


I recently purchased the book "Bush Tucker Plants of the South-West", very interesting read and something I will take out with me on my next few trips to see if I am able to identify some of the edible plants. I purchased the book from the Bibbulumn Track Foundation office in Perth, it is published by Naturebase. Track members get the book for about $5.80, non-members pay $6.50. Here is an extact-
The Nyoongar people of south-western Australia had a very ordered way of life. Their hunting and gathering patterns were guided by six weather-based seasons. The Nyoongars' resource-based observations enabled them to make the best use of available plant and animal resources at these times. This book provides an insight into some of the common bush tucker plants used by the Nyoongar people.

  2. I've had a copy of this book for years and have found it to be highly informative. The downside however is that other than the obvious bush tucker such as the quandong and snottygobble, most of the plants have to be killed as it is their root system that is edible... and digging up plants is an offence in WA :)

  3. Your right there Alan,

    The intention was more to be able to identify what is edible without doing any damage or removing any flora.

    This kind of stuff just interest me.
