[pct-l] Re: pct-l-digest V1 #456
We would not recommend using the stove Roger mentions. We used one
for a few "camping" trips and found that it had several problems:
- Fuel tablets are messy, need to handle before burning.
- Foil wrappers need to be carried out
- Where do you re-supply near the trail?
- Need to dispose of ash residue.
- Flame blew out if much wind.
- Often took more tablets than we expected to boil water for two.
