Re: dry wood vs damp wood

correction: the little stove weighs 2 oz withOUT the windscreen. In my earliest experimenting with pot height I discovered that I was able to cut my average boil time with the pot raised up some.It seems that if you give the flames a little more space they want to speed up and form into one big flam...

Re: dry wood vs damp wood

Thanks Zelph. The smallest twigs seem to light about the same(very hot tinder) but the overall tone of the fire is less intense with the damper wood. I think I actually put more small stuff on top of the damp wood because I was worried that it would be harder to light. It was also not really THAT da...

Re: Dome fly tipi tent..can be done!

Nice looking work It looks like one could shoot a short recurve out of that thing.
Our Wallyworld never has any good fabric like that.

That is very interesting. Thanks for posting. I would like to see some of his other videos.

Re: "Wood Fires" Top Lighting Technique

Does it take any longer to get started and to get good cooking heat out of a top lit set up? What are the benefits? Is it a one loader? Mine could be but it burns so fast that to cram it completely full can overpower a small pot and lick up the sides. I like the fire to stay a mostly on the bottom o...

Re: "Wood Fires" Top Lighting Technique

Cant wait to see it. Is it a top lit style stove? That is pretty lightweight. As you know I am a big proponent of the single wall stainless steel. Even the thinnest gauge seems to be able to withstand many many burns. http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/cadyak/?action=view¤t=may2010048.mp4 h...

Re: couple of metal questions

yeah did i say small?
I havent looked at it in about 10 nyears.
it is old school.
looks like tying the wire is back in. At least it should be prettier in stainless. I may be able to find someone locally who can help me out.
thanks
