tall wind screen on 01/16/2007 18:16:43 MST Print View

wind screen, stakes, & long handled spoon.
i don't know if this has already been done, but i thought i'd share the solution i came up w/ for carrying the tall wind screen made according to the article here on stoves & wind screens.
there was talk about wrapping the wind screen around a water bottle, but i don't carry one so i decided i would group all that longer, hard stuff together.
this included wind screen, tarp stakes, & long handled ti spoon. they ride together in a cut-off water bottle that provides protection & slides easily into a silnylon sack.
a couple extra lengths of cord & two extra mini-biners in the bottom of the sack.
9 ozs
solid fule stove

what stove are you using w/this set-up? if it's a canister do you have any concerns about the fuel overheating?

it's a home made solid fuel stove, made w/ hardware cloth.
the pot is a snow peak 600 mug.
kitchen

this is the whole kitchen...
mug/pot
stove
foil lid
foil reflector base
wind screen
bag for solid fuel, lighter, & tweezers
reflex cozy
cut off water bottle that fits snugly inside the mug & separates the stove, reflector, lid, & fuel bag from the inside of the mug.
every thing fits inside the mug except the wind screen.
