Hello

Postby Frum » Sat May 30, 2009 6:41 am

Hello. I've been lurking here and enjoying the forums for a while and thought it about time I joined. I'm from England, which means that I'll probably write "meths stove" when most of you would say "alcohol stove", and that I am interested in stoves which I can use inside a backpacking tent.

Jolly good to have you here mate. I just returned from a jaunt into the city. I'm back in the country now and will be having cobblers and crumpets with my spot of tea.
The only meths stove that I would recommend inside of a tent is the SS StarLyte UltraLyte. It has the fuel absorbing material in it to prevent spillage while burning.

There are a few threads here that show how to make a non-spill stove. A few of the guys here have made some nice ones and are glad to share how they are made. Tomorrow I should have my head on straight and direct you to a few of the threads.

Glad to have you here Frum

Hi!..Spillproof would be a necessity..I had a Kelty Windfoil II tent that actually had a 1/2-round spot in the vestible floor that unzipped for cooking over the dirt,snow, or whatever was under the tent..good concept for a 4 season tent... ;) ..The vestible area was separate from the sleeping area floor by a 3" high wall or so(for waterproofing);otherwise you'll need something to protect the floor from the heat or cook in a covered dirt-floor vestible area...Bring in a whole bunch of that moss between UKer's toes to cook over... :mrgreen: Hey..I live in Seattle;we grow between our toes also.. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the welcomes and the advice. I would like to ask for more advice on the subject of stoves in tent vestibules, but it probably belongs in a thread of its own, so I'll start one tomorrow.
