Multi-use photo thread on 12/13/2009 16:07:45 MST Print View

Here's one my favorites: using my foamer as a windscreen on a canister stove. This shot is at Lewis and Clark pass with Sam Haraldson on 2009 Parcour:

It's much easier in winter b/c of the snow.

It doesn't have to be. You could do it on an Aquafina bottle just as easily. The picture is only for reference.

Matt,

Great idea on using your foam pad as a wind screen!!

Mule, That's pretty clever, wrapping your windscreen around a nalgene. I use Nalgene bottles all the time for short hikes just 'cause they feel solid. This is a great idea. Hadn't thought of that before, I usually stick mine in the cooking pot as it's deep enough.

Good idea, using the foam as a wind break. Mine, when I used foam pads, always seem to blow over and I had to reinforce it. Still, it works well in moderate wind.

You're a very clever fellow Timo. We need to get you a regular column here. :-)

A MSR Whisperlite International:





Plus a citronella tiki torch oil (scented kerosene)



Equals a stove that cooks and repels mosquitoes at the same time. Does that count if both purposes must be done at the same time?

@Johann: it only really works when you can solidly secure the foamer. Otherwise, it won't work.

MSR stove on 01/21/2010 20:17:28 MST Print View

The MSR stove works as a cooking stove, and it can also be used as an eyebrow removal system.

backpacking mug/ wood stove on 01/26/2010 18:06:39 MST Print View

Everybody is drinking out of something. So you are going to have a mug of some kind. Unless it is some tiny titanium thing it will probably be a few oz. These mugs weigh in at between 4oz(16fl.oz) to 9.5 oz.(24 fl.oz) However broken down they make a very powerful volcano shaped stove and can also be used as windscreens/potstands for a back-up alcohol stove in one type of configuration or another. It seems to speed up boil times by a minute or so than without the mug. The stoves themselves are usually around 3 oz or so. Very fast boil times, and capable of burning for an hour or more if you have enough wood. Doesnt take much.

scented kerosene. Amazing. Maybe brilliant. How well does it work??


Are there any negatives? I assume the fumes are safe enough to be working over the stove? Doesn't produce any smoke or soot does it?

Funny thing I mostly use my MSR Dragonfly in winter.

Yes, it's always a pain trimming back those eyebrows. Also good for reducing nose and hand hair:-)

For me, the scented kerosene would probably mean an instant asthma attack. I've tried stuff sold as odorless kerosene at Lowes/homedepot and it works pretty well in my Optimus Nova; it really is pretty odorless compared to regular kerosene.

@ Brent

How do you get the stove on and off the mug? I am assuming that you have found a way for the bottom of the mug to be removable. Does this cause any issues? Such as the bottom dropping off or the like? Looks like an interesting concept.
