About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Good article. I like to be able to cook a variety of food, it really adds to the enjoyment of a hike. Looks like all you need is a shallow wide pot with a lid and a stove that simmers. It probab...

Why not alcohol?
The Primus and MSR multifuel stoves will run on just about anything - white gas, gasoline, kerosene even diesel, so why not alcohol (ethanol)? An internal combustion engine can run on ethanol, w...

Re: Hacking the jet filter
