    Traded in the old solid fuel stove for a very cool Trangia alcohol stove. About 20 bucks delivered. Using 3 ounce of alcohol, I boiled 2 quarts of water in 15:45, then simmered it at a rolling boil for another 50 minutes. And it only weigh a few grams. I can recommend the "wilderness"...

    Like a lot of you, I have several options for cooking should things go strange, but the other day I was testing my dual fuel (white gas & unleaded gasoline) coleman stove inside of my shed. While it works great, I'm pretty sure it produces carbon monoxide as a byproduct and they suggest it only...

    What do y'all prefer? Lugging a gallong of coleman fuel with you for your lantern/stove/etc. or the small jugs of propane? I'm still using coleman fuel but wondering if there is any benefit to switching over. I would imagine I can store more energy in containers of fuel in less space than...

    I have all kinds of cookstoves,...from antiques to modern. But when I saw this one, I had to give it a try. It is constucted out of two soda cans, or in my case beer cans.:D Total weight,...less than an ounce. With 2 oz of 70% isopropyl alcohol I was able to bring 2 cups of cold water to a boil...
