It's been a WHILE, But I'm back!

Hey guys! Its been a long while!. I'm back tho! Its been an incredible time since the last time I logged on here. I'm out of debt! I upgraded from my little Dodge van to a Class-B RV, and I've been joined by a G/F and a Border Collie named Zia... :) I really haven't tried out any new stoves over the...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

So the Kompakt stove fired right up after I fueled it. Can't beat the quality of these goofy Soviet era stoves. http://oi60.tinypic.com/15ex182.jpg I don't know what happened to those guys. I also bought a new Russian Federation made camp stove and it looks like it was assembled by a very drunk pers...

Nope. I'm no collector.

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

I've been wanting to order a Shmel-3 twin burner for a year now. I found one for cheap that's N.I.B. so I snatched it up for under $100. WELL OK.. The G/F asked me what I wanted for Xmas, so I showed her the Shmel-3 on Ebay, 4 minutes later she did the rest. Got to love the G/F.. :-) While I Was at ...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

One of the many dangers of having a smart phone while your at your mates flat drinking large amounts of beer while talking about railroading and how technology ruins most things that are cool: You wake up the next day with a hang-over, check your Email and realize you went on Ebay and bought another...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

I like the color after firing :D do the rivets/eyelets look beefy enough on the folding pot supports? I would have bought one if I didn't already have too many wood burners. :o :shock: It looks good for at least 6 months of everyday use as long as you don't boil gallon pots full of water for shower...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

Just for the heck of it, I went and ordered a $20.00 Chinese built copy of the Wildstove wood burner. I have low expectations but if the thing lasts me more then 6 months of daily use I'll be happy. I do own a real Wildstove and I'm curious to see if these things are any good compared to the origina...

Re: I was *really* bored at work....

I already tried one. I wasn't too impressed with its performance. Too much smoke and not alot of heat. I use my Ikea stove as a pen/pencil/crescent wrench holder on my desk.. :-D
