Re: ml
Delmar - you're right. I mis-wrote grams when I should have said ml. I went back and edited my other post to clarify the oops I made. It's hard not to get sloppy with units since there&...

Re: Good Catch, Indeed.
Delmar - the .78x is the density of alcohol expressed in g/ml. Set B8 to g/ml if you are entering the fuel amount in ml. (edited to correct my original which errantly said grams)

Glenn - we are both right .... LOL
Glenn - We are both right. Density of alcohol is temperature dependent. Density of ethanol is .785 @25C and .789 @20C. Methanol comes in at .7865 @ 25C and .791 @20C

Why the Big difference
Okay guys, my head is officially spinning but, no worries, I've wrapped it duct tape to make sure it doesn't explode. I now know way much more then I ever cared to about barometric pressure...

Re: Some comments
Glenn - I like working in BTUs as it eliminates the need to convert temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius. It takes 1 BTU to raise a lb of water one degree F. All you need to do is convert lbs to ...

Re: Can anyone please explain why my esbit isn't melting my alum. stove (1400°F vs. 1200°) ??
Interesting question and a wide range of answers, even if some folks were not answering the specific question you asked. I believe the answer is that the open flame of the esbit isn't reach...

Re: Re: Esbit Stove Efficiency
Glenn - not quite a simple as just substituting the Esbit's 30.9 kJoules/g for acohol's 25 kJoules/g. You would also have to change the 0.789ml/g used to convert ml of alcohol to grams. Cha...

Esbit Stove Efficiency
I've been following this alcohol stove efficiency discussion with interest. It got me wondering about the efficiency of esbit setups. I've got a cute little 400ml cup and custom sized Ti-Tr...

Re: camp/ fishing/ hiking shoes
I use my Inov8 Roclite 295's for all three purposes. Hike in them, fish in them (even wading into streams as the rubber is pretty sticky) and relaxing around camp in them.
