As I set off from Vordingborg (the birth place of the legendary football manager Morten Olsen), the temperature with windchill was below zero, but it was sunny and I was out hiking, the temperature did not really matter. Heading out of town I settled into my stride with the usual adjusting of the pack straps and organising the clothing such that I was comfortable but not overly warm. I wandered past the massive Rosenfeldt Manor (which had a significant role in the Danish Queen's courtship) Following the road for a while I finally reached Oreby Skov, the trail continued along the road to Ore Strand but I took a detour as I longed to sit on the beach and enjoy the sunshine. I finally found a spot and just sat looking towards Knudshoved Odde. While the swans happily paddled in the water below, life felt good.

I had an opportunity today to explore the possibility of using the BPL UK Pocket Stove in wood burning mode and my view is that it will boil water in this mode and is better than some wood burning stoves, however, the Bush Buddy remains the best stove if your focus is on wood burning.
