Now I'm paying more attention to Devin Montgomery's titanium kettle... the Kelly Kettles seem like they'd be great for base camps, but they're pretty heavy at a full pound.

Still, just the fact that you can cook with it while you're heating water in it is pretty cool :)

Just some of the questions in my mind....
Nothing below it to catch debris. The only thing that will be left is white ash, no charcoal, just ash in the light fluffy form. In most cases I wont need anything below it. Wind has an effect on all stoves. A windscreen is suggested when using wood or alcohol and even esbit. I've not tried esbit or alcohol yet in a test situation. I'll do some tests using the StarLyte stove to get an Idea of boil times and fuel usage. The one photo I have posted shows the Modified StarLyte burner being used under the snow peak 600 mug. It was to show distance from burner to pot bottom and flame pattern.

I should be getting a new camera soon so I can get back in the photo making mode.

I seems as if D. Montgomery has come to a standstill on his kettle project. His is made of aluminum.

My stainless steel kettle is for base camp use. My interest in it comes at the same time as I'm developing the Woodgaz stove. The two seem to work well together. Anyone using the large kettles can benefit from making a wood containment container such as the Woodgaz stove to keep the soot to aminimum and keep the fuel contained when the kettle is removed once the water comes to a boil. We saw two videos of Ridgrunners kettle showing the long , burning twigs fall out when the kettle was removed. His videos gave me the idea of using the Woodgaz stove to contain/control the twigs while burning. A simple container made of 1/2" hardware cloth will work just fine.

Yep..cooking on top while you're heating water is a good thing with that stove..I also know a real good place to use it around here..since there is a telephone booth nearby to get the paper from..I wonder how long the telephone book will last at this one... :roll:

HaHaHa............leave no phone booth trace in the wilderness. Next to it there should be an enlarged cell phone as a companion in the wilderness. Why not, MOST hikers have their cell phones. :roll: Ahhhh!!! the Zen of of the wilderness ;) ............ZenPhone.com camo design for wilderness use via satellite :roll:

Family Reunion coming up this weekend up in Minnesota and then into Wisconsin. I'll be gone for 5 days. I got my new camera in the mail yesterday, ebay at auction, $5.00 + $5.00 shipping........same camera as I lost. Good deal!!!!

Just got back from Michigan. Fall colors were at their prime which, still, was not nearly as nice as years past. They ,too, have lacked the late summer rainfail to bring out the colorful foilage. :(

There were plenty of colors; just not as "rich" as years past. I think you received our share of the rainfall this year....grrrr. We have trees that are stressed. Must be global warming! :roll: :lol:

I got photos, now I need time to process. :o

The weather was great and will continue to be the same for this entire week. This week is our major Halloween campout. Only 1.5 days to prepare for that and I'm gone again. I will take both of my hammocks and do a hang test to see if I can sleep on my side in them.

I designed a folding Woodgaz over the weekend :roll: will post some photos tomorrow.
