BackcountryBoiler

Backcountry Boiler Version 2 - $115
New, just never got around to using it. In addition to the boiler, improved stopper, and stuff sack, also includes the FireFelt alcohol wick and an alcohol fuel bottle that fits inside the boiler.

The reason I list this is to show how people will make "impulse" purchases and then realise they have no need for one. I think it's especialy true for wood burning stoves. All the hype that was seen at BPL reminded me of the movie "Ants"

Interesting to see how much interest there is now for using alcohol to fuel the BCB :roll:

Look at the price, only $115.00

Don't pass up this once in a liftime deal ;)

Yes, youch :o

And it's made in Canada. It went from his porch at home right into the industrial world for production. at the same time in the UK there was one already being produced. BPL had the UK producer on line to import but opted to go with Kevins who eventually imported. Kinda interesting the way things happen ;)

All along the Kelly Kettle folks were producing the small Trekker alum. kettle.

A cottage industry gone the way of big industry.
