When it came time to taking my kids out there, we would make a big trip of it – tents, marshmallows, and stories to boot. Coffee to me in the morning is like beer to me at night – it’s what you need to kickstart the day, and I used to go without or have it black when we went camping. Some friends introduced us to long life milk, which I didn’t really realise was a thing even as a young fella. When I got presented with the Kiwi made version, rather than the Australian one, I figured why not.
It’s great in the sense that I can throw a bottle in the bags with everything else and not have to fuss about chilling it. Crack that open in the morning, ready to go with the coffee from the gas stove or fire, and everyone is sorted and ready to soldier on, whether we’re heading in deeper or heading back home with a stag.
