    Why is my home made camp stove making so much black smoke? Korey and I made 2 camp stoves out of 16 ounce budweiser cans. These are the heavy duty aluminum cans, not the cheap thin cans. The first attempt was with wal-greens rubbing alcohol. That stuff would not burn. The second attempt was...

    Ray Mears says in his book, Essential Bushcraft on pg.12, that "Of tent designs my favourite is the Scandinavian one-pole tepee Kota or Laavu, as used in the far north of Scandinavia.

    Yesterday, I went to academy sports, and bought a small mess kit. When I tried to boil some water in the small stainless steel cook pot, over my soda can alcohol stove, I noticed an odd smell, and the bottom of the pot was blackened in certain spots. Did I completely mess up the pot? The same...

    My son, my nephew and I just got back from a 6 - 8 mile hike. My brother dropped us off about 4.6 miles from the camp - but that is in a straight line and not counting elevation of hills. We got out of the truck, walked about a 1/4 mile, stopped to get the memory card out of a trail camera...

    Besides a poncho liner, what do you use as a liner for your sleeping bag? My kids use a fleece blanket, but the weight to usability ratio is low on those things. The fleece blankets are heavy, do not breath very well and are highly flammable. I usually use a poncho liner to increase my...
