Re: Re: Wood stove bulk
No problem with the hijack. I've been spurred by your setup to think about an internal-chimney beercan cookset, which I'll experiment with once I figure out how to cut nice circles out of t...

Re: Re: UL pocketknife - what blade do you carry?
I have a Benchmade 530 and just a couple packing days' experience with it. Its a really cool knife and feels very sturdy to me. I didn't chop any trees down with it though. (Works great on ...

Re: Tarp/Bivy vs. Tent
How's that sportsman's blanket work, Michael, if it rains? Do you tuck your head under? And doesn't water find a way to flow in? And surely you need pretty warm weather for such a se...

Re Volcano kettle
Do you have details, Rog? Sounds pretty cool. I wasn't even aware of the volcano kettle concept. You must be using some beercan-heavy design to get it so light.

Stakes
You could use tent stakes (with some holes a little higher) but it wouldn't save you much, and probably would not keep the pot as well centered as the compression-fit support ring.

Boil time
I boiled 2 cups from 22°C in just under 9 minutes with no wind. Burn time was maybe another minute with 1/2 fl oz of Crown denatured alcohol from REI. Note that it does boil over the sides a...

Unburned fingers
You can pick up the whole screen-pot assembly using a bandanna or something as a potholder and pour the water out of the pot. There's not much clearance between them so it works well. Some ligh...

1oz Cookset
For the heck of it, I made a really light (but fuel efficient) cookset (just over 1oz) which can boil 2 cups reasonably efficiently. The hardest part was building it after drinking 50oz of beer. Th...
