Re: I was *really* bored at work....

The Stanley pot is working out pretty well with that old Russian 8R clone I use nearly on a daily basis. Its of comparable quality as anything MSR builds but at 1/2 the cost, and thus far I've made many a meal with that pot. It hasn't replaced my Coleman Peak 1 pot yet, but I imagine it will soon. M...

Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

nah. I got rid of that bug when I first moved into my van and headed out into the woods. Maybe I'll buy another one someday, but for now the Van Charger is the priority. It has to be ready by Halloween for my Baja trip. Better bust out the hooked-on-phonics tapes.. My Spanish sux.

If it wasn't for needing to work on a Westfalia like every 15 minutes while on road trips, I'd buy one!

Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

Well I've been talking about this for months now, and I have finally gone off and done it. I'm upgrading my van: http://oi60.tinypic.com/2z3ukck.jpg It's a 1985 Dodge Ram Van-Charger. or "V-charger" for short. It's a partial van-conversion with a 5.9L and auto 4wd. I have to do some surger...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

As I live in my van I keep trying new set ups. This month I am trying the Stanley cup and pot along with my usual cast iron skillet and Swedish mess kit

Re: I bought a camper (kinda)

Well I gave the Riviera alcohol stove a go for a month and I went back to my trusty Shmel. That Shmel, my trusty old Coleman 1 litre pot, a 6" cast iron frying pan, a Bundeswehr utensils set, and my now rebuilt wood gas stove seems to be all I really need now that I've spent 6 months in a Dodge...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

After 6 months of almost daily use, the bottom fell out of my wood gas stove.. :( http://oi62.tinypic.com/2yxf0ig.jpg And these old German army butter dishes (Only the Germans can overbuild a butter dish!) work GREAT as waterproof soap dish/containers! http://oi60.tinypic.com/2z6z7e8.jpg

Re: Work gave me a new project

I wish I could covert it to electric, but it would be impractical as it'll haveto run for long periods of time. It has a rebuilt Ford Industrial 4cyl ready to install. The transmission I *THINK* is a Ford Agriculture 4 speed with PTO. I just got the floor frame welded up and its nearly ready for the...

Its a 1950's Union Pacific speeder. I wish I took a pic with the wrecked body on it from a runaway and crash five presidents ago
