>Secondly, 'in serious weather' you do not want to be cooking outside. Get real. But cooking inside your tent with this stove has to be one of the most hazardous occupations around. I can only hope you had a LOT of ventilation going on at the time.
Again, I disagree here. There are other dangers involved with using your stove in a tent. If, for instance, I understand the concerns with the amount of CO emissions it puts out, then I will take the needed precautions (more ventilation, only use at full volume, etc). I think a bigger threat is burning down the tent when priming. I have, on several occasions, cooked my food in pouring rain, blizzards, etc. outside my tent. The fact that I need only about 3 minutes with the Reactor makes it doable.
Due to the massive rainstorm that hit me, I completely buttoned up my tent. As most people know, the Akto isn't the best ventilated tent around, but, again, I felt no adverse effects. I know how subtly carbon monoxide can effect a person and I was fully aware of this while using the stove (I'm always concerned about this no matter what stove I'm using). If I find I am getting headaches or feeling sleepy, I immediately turn off the stove. I felt no such thing (I was operating it at full volume for the quickest boil).
I do plan on making sure that I am very careful (more so now due to your report) with the Reactor while using it in my tent, but due to my experience, I plan on continuing to use it in a tent when necessary. I try not to use it there as much as humanly possible, but as you said, let's get real. There are times (very few times) when there is no other way.
