Oh dear not off to a great start, I guess I should have had a look before I started this thread :oops:

any number between 13-400 and if it lands on a photo or chapter heading page then go to the next nearest page. hows that??
Oh dear lol - 45 then
Solar cooking!! That should be a doddle, errrm... perhaps I should have gone with my friend who has just moved to Perth, Australia! I'm prepared to give it a shot though to see what we can manage up here in the cold north. The sun DOES shine up here sometimes.

The other bits on the page I already do, but if I may I'll go for the option of a pressure cooker - half the paragraph is on page 45 anyway, and it's something I've been wanting to get for a long while.

Excellent - I love scrumping (I used to live in Kent :wink: ) and I'm really getting into wild food - done nettles and wild garlic in the last couple of weeks - hoping to expand my wild cupboard over the coming months
