    They call it Ciber Punk, steam powered machines!

    1800+! Nice "époque"!

    Well, as it is fall here (near winter), I'll go on with my Rhum!

    Sheers!

    Edit: Hic... Cheers!

    You’re describing Lancashire, bar the flag and my being president.

    I’ll confess my weekend has started with paraffin hands, tinkering with a Heinz Geniol military stove - soon to appear in the Stove Ref Gallery - but tomorrow there’ll be a Biolite grill session for four (well, two Biolites and two grills to be precise).

    My father was a lecturer at the college there and they lived in Letchworth for a while.

    I have an old school friend who we still visit occasionally there as well.

    Enjoy your tour, the weather is looking good for you.

    Hi John, @presscall

    What do you think of Vesta(s)land?, one, Vesta Roman goddess associated with fire, and for @shagratork who only carries matches.

    I've knocked up a flag which I'll post a bit later so don't worry about that bit Mr President. :)

    Impressive @kev_c

    You'll be issued with your Vestaland passport when you present your Biolite at passport control. 8]

    The Festival of Vestalia runs from 7 - 15th June, something to celebrate slightly earlier at Newark.

    Based on TLUD functionality, Green for the fuel, black for the char and yellow for the flame. :thumbup:

    The string vest has been ordered, a cheap one not a Brynje, which will probably go on my list for Santa.

    To all at CCS and CPL

    I would just like to say a belated but heartfelt thank you to everyone (far too many names to mention) at Newark this year for making a first time visitor feel so welcome and included.

    I had a wonderful time putting faces to names, chatting, chilling and making/eating pizza and just generally enjoying looking at others lamps and stoves.

    An especially big thank you to Ross and all involved for organizing the annual event, I only wish I had not been so needlessly shy and attended years ago!

    I look forward to attending next year and will definitely book the time off work as soon as a date is confirmed, and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

    Regards Jeremy
