BLA BLA BLA BLA..... Some people ramble on and on.

This was just a video of a cool project.

Wrong. It's a topic on SHTF and talking about having them in bugout bags. If it was merely a video of a cool project, then there's no issue with it. If it's a topic on useful prepping, then it's of extremely limited use.

I am not sure I agree on the limited use part -- the best part about these tiny little alcohol stoves is their ability to produce a compact flame during a risky time in one's flight for freedom....

The benefits of knowing how to create one of these stoves is:

1. Can be made with easily found items -- look in the rough grass off of any highway and you will find almost everything you need to construct one.

2. reuseable!

3. doesn't take up much room in a BOB.

4. Can use multiple fuels

5. Most thugs in a SHTF scenario won't even know what it is from looing at it.

Re: SHTF simple way to cook food and boil water
Well said, I do agree in all cases but in my case which is different than everyone elses of course. I already live in the bush in BC Can. I am a guide in the summers (Americans come up and hunt where I live) I have all the tools and skills needed to survive in the bush while being normal and healthy. What I would have knowledge in the form of phone is for making surviving easier and to strave of boredom. I wouldnt have to battle my way through a city like most. I just need to survive and spead the gossiple! Having companct portable knowledge is essential in making life easier and safer.

Cheers!

Boredom is what I was thinking of. Forget the phones...think ebook readers and mp3 players. I love the we can literally carry entire libraries in our pockets and being able to save pieces of our culture - our science, math, history, etc - is pretty priceless. And the mp3 players will save our music and make long days more bearable. (plus many have video - allowing a video record of what was). The only issue then is protecting the devices from the elements.

Re: SHTF simple way to cook food and boil water
I made the pop can stoves last night, I had to light a candle under it, to get it hot enough to light, I used some dryer lint soaked in the fuel as a wick to keep it going until it took off. But my dendatured fuel I found in the garage could be 20 or more years old LOL

It was a mess and took a few trial cans before I got it right. It is something you want to do before you actualy need to use it. Practace. But it is good for indoors after you burn off left over paint and chemical furmes from cans.

Using an old hot plate and few other thing around, I made a nice little indoor stove. 1/3 oz of fuel made one boiling cup of water/ coffee, tea, soup etc in the 12 min it burned.

Practace before you need it so you do not wast your matches, fuel, time etc during an actual emergency.

It is not as easy as it looks.

thank you

My son has made several and that is what he said as well -- on the third try he got it right. Did you take it apart to see how the dyer lint fared?

Re: SHTF simple way to cook food and boil water
I just put a little piece of soaked lint on the top of the can. The soaked lint burnt a long time, a lot longer than I expected.

Any rips in the cans caused the fuel to burn outside of the holes. I had no problem plowing out the fully lit can.

It took it lot to get that paint off, tried three diffent grits of sand papper.

I wonder if... you could just soak the lint in the fuel and put it in a little bowl or something? And not bother with the rest of it (the construction)? Do you think that would work?

Re: SHTF simple way to cook food and boil water
When I moved into my current appartment the new kitchen got delayed for a week. Luckily I had one of those swedish military canteens.

Got mine for 9 euros. Cooked with a stainless steel pot and it was quite dandy. As a backup or for heating stuff fast and stealthy when on the move ------> Purrfect.

That is really cool! It has the whole rocket-stove concept combined with a backpacker's nesting pots/pans set.
