The humble kettle.

Everyone likes tea or coffee I guess, but not everyone lives the vanlife. One of the best things about Hank and vanlife in general is the ability to make a lovely cuppa wherever you park up. Favourite mug check, strong tea bags (or loose leaf for you aficionados out there) check, fresh water and then for the kettle!

Claire has always had an insistence on keeping this true to our camping roots, no fancy whistling, duck egg blue kettles in our van, we stay hardcore and lightweight and use our trusty GSI Outdoors HALULITE 1.1 L BOILER. THE PERFECT, PACKABLE POT, PURE AND SIMPLE!

We bought this from a small camping shop in Boulder, Colorado many moons ago. It has taken a beating and still looks as good now as when we spent our holiday dollars on it. It takes up no space, is dead easy to clean and best of all delivers super hot, freshly boiling water to make that vanlife staple a lovely cuppa!!!

When we bought Hank we tried to carry on the ethos of camping we’d always enjoyed, I guess we live a fairly minimalist vanlife, no TV’s, no onboard WI-FI, no tablets and generally we aim to do things as simply as possible.
