Re: the honey stove

I agree Daren, woodgas is the way to go with these little cookers. To me the Honey stove is a compromise, not an efficient stove like a Trangia 25 or 27 and too small a woodburner to be anything more than a brew maker/noodle cooker. I eat real food when out and about which is why I stick to an open ...

Re: TeePee

Nice teepees Richard. I like your Golite Hex. Does that use a hiking pole or a separate pole ? I eventually plan on erecting a large permanent type teepee in the side yard. I have a small woodburner that will fit nicely. It has an Easton aluminium pole and a short pole you can extend a hiking pole ...

Re: the honey stove

Re: TeePee

Tipi tents are popular with UK bushcrafters. Most are single pole and made from nylon or polycotton if you want to use a firebox or stove and flue. I've been using a Golite Hex 3 for about three years, great tent, light enough for one to carry; sleeps two in real comfort. http://img.photobucket.com/...

Re: cooking rice

Basmati is about the best 'non stick' rice to get, small grained it tends not to clump together as much as a standard long grain variety. One option for cooking rice (and other food) is to bring the rice to a boil and then put in a wide mouthed Thermos flask, the rice cooks in its own heat and saves...
