Re[3]: [at-l] Cooking in any Tent?

     I still measure the time I've been away from the out-of-doors by how 
     long the hair is on the back of my hands and my fingers. If it's 
     singed short or entirely gone, I know I just back. God bless the 123!

My wife and friends stole and discarded my Svea 123, although I loved it. I 
had the problem of starting fires in the grass from gas spills when trying 
to start the initial flame that would heat and pressurize the fuel. But not 
even I would attempt that in a tent, or even under a vestibule.
