We just this minute took delivery of two Kelly Kettle Base Camp Sets. So, its with HUGE thanks to Patrick Kelly and the guys over in Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland, for their support – and faith in what we are doing. And, as with all our product sponsors, we’ll be providing the Kelly Kettle Company with professional images of their product in use, and promoting them here on the blog, FB, Twitter etc. when we are on the forthcoming River Gambia Expedition
“Have a GREAT trip! What an adventure that will be!” Patrick Kelly – Kelly Kettle Company Director & Co-Founder
We are absolutely thrilled to have the ingenious little gadgets for the expedition – and another thing, with thanks to companies like the Kelly Kettle Company, to tick off our now-not-so-lengthy ‘Wish List’!
‘Kelly Kettle® essential Camping equipment for the Outdoors. [for Scouts, Fishing, Picnics, Disaster Kits, etc. …’
It also means we won’t be burning charcoal (‘kembo’ – Mandinka word) on the expedition either, to cook and boil water, when we get down to West Africa this time. With the Kelly Kettle, we can use dry grass, paper, and bits of twigs to get it going – altogether much kinder on the environment. And, the kettles are super light weight, compact and durable – which is essential, as we will need to account for every ounce we carry, when we are trekking and canoeing our way along the course of the River Gambia.
