no, it's an open air cookstove that burns wood. weighs about 7 ounces all in. the light weight S/S seems to hold up quite well.

Daren..what was the weight of your package coming in verses it going out?...might explain a large difference in cost of postage...

busted! :lol:
i got caught whining about shipping costs! :D
it left here in the same box it showed up in. but it left here with stuff in it. it was probably three times the weight (guessing).

I heard that I "cleaned" the bounce box out. The fact is, I had to pay nearly as much postage as DarenN.

Don't feel so bad about the Canadian snail-mail. Our snail-mail can be bad and I am in "greater Portland".

Hmm... I think I see the green-eyed monster realityguy. :mrgreen:

I know I am going to snag a 7 oz. wood stove. At least I think so. Uh, will it boil water :!:

It isn't one of those wood pellet jobs, with a little fan and recharges a cellphone is it :P I would send that on.

I've shipped to Canada..didn't see THAT MUCH of a difference..Daren just confirmed my suspicions... ;)

I had to break down and have to ship a $600 clock to florida by USPS..but it wasn't MY dime! :roll:

it'll boil two cups with a batch burn of crappy wood. :)

I am going to have to send some nice things to the person after me, and that will be a challenge after DarenN.

My never-used GSI coffee press doesn't seem so glamorous, after all this. What don't I use that is stove specific :?:

If it is backpacking food prep and cooking specific, I have a lot of stuff I have purchased because it looks good but I haven't used because I stick to the tried-and-true stuff I have used many years.

Now Connie, you know you don't need another lightweight wood burning stove to soot up your cook pot. You should probably just forward that one along! ;)
