It is definitely warmer if you wear nothing at all, ONLY if you have someone else to share your body heat with though!! ;)

Yes, that is what I have always believed. I saw it on some survival show many years ago where they explained that the warmth generated from two bare bodies was far greater than that of the same two bodies wrapped in layers of clothing, and that if you were ever caught unexpectedly in freezing temperatures the best thing to do was remove the clothing and place it over the two bodies for better warmth.

Gee - you'd have to be careful who you got caught with wouldn't you???

Thermals ROCK!
I dont know what your saying - I think I look very sexy in me thermies! LOL

Good sleeping bag
Space blanket
Lots of thinner layers
Thermals

I dont really know - I've always camped in winter it only recently ive been "dragged along" into camping in warmer months and I've gotta say I dont like it much. I guess as long as your warm in bed you will always find something to keep you warm during the day be it sitting around the fire or going for walks etc

Just listening to the radio and they say we are in for a cold snap here is the great south east.

Tomorrow is not expected to get above 20 and that is a little chilly for Qld.

I made some awesome chicken stock on the weekend. Using half for risotto and half for chicken soup! YUMMO!
For under $5 I reacon making stock is one of the most economical ways of using food.

Think I'm gunna learn how to make a duck stock soon cause I want to make a duck risotto - gotta love duck!

Depends on the type of duck and how you prepare it.

Wild duck is great but is very fatty and not much meat vs fat & bones.

Domestic birds are the best but dont be fooled into muscovy ducks - they are more goose than duck and have that thick fat

Sorry but duck is duck to me. I remember all the domestic birds we used to kill and dress for sale when I was a kid....no way can I come at duck.

Tried steamed duck at the chinese restauraunt in Cowra recently. Was beautiful flavour but would have prefrred to have had the skin removed before serving. Was a bit glutinous :grin:

I'm with Gypsy on this one - you boys can have your ducks. And speaking of ducks:

A man orders Chop Suey in a Chinese restaurant. The waiter brings out a pot with a lid but the man's afraid to eat it because every so often the lid lifts up a wee bit and a wee pair of eyes peer out at him. He calls the waiter over and points it out. The waiter asks "What did you order sir?" The man replies "Chop Suey."

"Oh, my mistake," says the waiter "I thought you ordered Peeking Duck!"

And by the way, this is another shocker of a hijack!
