Re: Canister failure: has this happened to you?
My first ever canister on my first ever canister stove developed a leak in my backyard when i was *playing* with the new toy. Discharged its contents in less than a minute. Even though I'm an...

Re: The Hype of Dehydration and Heatstroke

Yes, Ben, that graph is scary, and when you add it to the graph of GDP spending on health care, it is no surprise that America is suffering economic hardship. I guess the most reliable jobs are in...

I'll add my thumbs-down to this stove. It's only redeeming features are that it looks cool, seems robust...and works fine as an Esbit stand (thus a 2 instead of a 1). For alcohol use it is ...
