You guys rock! This community has to be the #1 patron for innovative lightweight gear.
Okay, so Tim, Jerald, Cary (I'm honored to be your one purchase :)), Miguel, Daniel, Nicholas, John A., Tom, Greg, and Debbie. You're all on the list. That makes 21. Thank you all!
James and Tom: I'll try to do you one better than more pictures. I'll see if I can upload a video of my first prototype in action from earlier this winter.
John: I use "dry wood" for those boiling times as a benchmark. They will certainly get longer given damp wood or other variables, but this comes with the territory. This happens any time you use wood or other indigenous fuels, and I think those that regularly cook with fire view its use as a valued skill. There is more learning than, say, flicking the piezo of a Jetboil, but wood can be quite practical after some practice. In damp conditions this may mean bringing some bits of fire starter, collecting dry wood before a downpour, finding dead standing wood, etc. For really soaked conditions, I'm sure than some of the creative minds here can come up with a practical way to incorporate a small alcohol or wax burner. I have some ideas on that front as well, but am right now concentrating on the basic kettle.
