We have been inspired by Ruth's reports from Birdsville and have decided to head up to innamincha & Birdsville from the Blue Mountains in July.
In past winter trips we have had problems with keeping meals hot on the plates while you eat.
Question. Do any of you good people know where I can get a set if insulated plates like the ones they use in hospital to stop the beautiful meals the navigator prepares from getting cold before I can eat them.
Thanks
Vince

cant help you with those plates but try worming the stainless steel ones for a few seconds before putting food on them either over the fire or gas use a pair of plyers it works great and a towel over the legs if not using a table will help to keep you warm without getting burnt99 GU Patrol 4.2 TD

Put another plate over the top or use foil. Never been a problem with us 'cause we just wolf the food down:-))))))))

G'day Vince...if you really want those plates ...look up Hospital equipment & Supplies in the yellow pages or catrering suppliers and make a few calls - you'll soon find a supplier.

To warm the plates, I stack them on the saucpans, in place of the lids, while the food is cooking.
Melamine plates don't cool the food off as much as the enamel or china plates.
