    I think that was already mentioned earlier in the thread but worth mentioning again and again. It's not something campers or boaters would think of if they weren't aware of the dangers. Even people at home with a bucket for ashes beside the stove while they sit there oblivious of the danger. 

     

    We have an ash bucket at home. I never fill it or empty it unless it's cold. It lives in the cellar. Hot ashes stay in the stove until they're not.

    Single use PET bottles, that is. Plastic isn't just plastic!

    I do and then I can keep the reel on the front deck and take the hose to the tap.

     

     

    That's a valid reason, but so is putting the reel next to the tap and having full control over the other end, so as not to drag it in the mud!

     

    If I were to put the reel on my foredeck, it would likely end up in the cut.

    I had a flat hose reel, I thought would be easy to stow.  It failed in about six months with pinhole leaks, the inner part separated from the outer part.  I replaced it  with a food grade hoses, available from caravan suppliers.

     

    Yes, ours is a food grade caravan job. I have the tap end on a short tail and the tank end on the 30m long wound up reel. It amazes me how many people do it the other way around.

    It's worse when you just left the screw on connector and can't find that spare you saw just the other day ....somwhere.......🗯️

     

    We carry about 5 or 6 spare tap connectors. I haven't mislaid one for years!

    No No No preferably Laphroaig.

     

    Guess which is my favourite?

     

  6. Another approach is to download photos from your phone to another device (eg a PC or laptop) every so often. My experience with IT goes back far enough to the times when we had to remember to do such things as a matter of course.

     

    That was especially true when using a DSLR camera .. which, of course, had its storage on a flashcard anyway.

    I’ve ordered a new Android as my current one won’t switch on anymore due to being dropped. Are all my photos on my SIM card or somewhere in the in the phone’s memory?

     

    Stupid question - have you had the phone apart to make sure the battery is sitting comfortably? I work on the principle that first you look for simple things you can fix yourself, no matter how unlikely. I realise that an unfixable breakage is far more likely!

    I'm glad you recognise the sacrifices I make ;)

    Most trees have what is called a mast year, in effect a cycle of heavy fruiting followed by a more fallow couple of years

     

    Our raspberry canes did that - last year. This year -- niente.

    The grape vine (singular) did well though.
