Lentils in a pressure cooker. Cheap, compact and packed with calories and nutrition. I am not a veg and even I can solve that one!

Re: Australia to Central/South America, advice for a novice.

Too late to go with El Pinguino, for he left Auckland a week or so ago. Got 30+ hours out and had the overpressure valve on his hot water tank fail and drain a half of his fresh water into the bilge. Harsh language was used, and then they turned back for repair and re-watering. Have departed again and as of yesterday were at 38d 42m S, 171d 30m W, all well on board. For the hams out there, he is coming up on Tony's Net, 14.315 MHz around 2100 Zulu.

Cheers,

Jim
