"Hi Yall, I'm hungry and need a new stove to cook some grub"

Actually, I'm a sort of newbie DIY stove guy. I've made a few, mostly Fancy Feast can Cat stove types. I've had fun lurking on this site, have learned a great deal, but really don't feel I have had anything to contribute yet. I just happened to stumble on this thread today.

Thanks.

Wow ! Glad to see you found your way back to us , Richard. Welcome aboard, I think you will find interesting topics of conversation here. I checked out your web link and noticed you reccommended White Blaze Fever. I will have to find a copy as I have never seen that one. I have read a dozen books on AT hiking and enjoyed them all. Some get into the history of the trail and some into conservation issues while others are more like journals. A Walk in the Woods was the first one I read and it brought tears of laughter to my eyes while reading it. I understand the Robert Redford is in negotiations to bring the book to the Big Screen---can't wait.

Thanks zelph and ridgerunner. I appreciate the welcome. And I appreciate the stove!

About Redford, that's my underestanding too. I wonder what the effect will be. Will other people see these guys struggling and giving up and conclude a thru-hike of the AT is insane? Or will it turn people on and we'll see a lot more people on the AT.

Hope to run into you outside some time.

It's a classic and one of my favorites. Have you cooked a meal on it yet. I beleive I shipped it in a bubble pack, did it get smooshed?

I haven't cooked with it yet but I've tried it out boiling water in my .85 L MSR titanium pot I got for Christmas. How light and easy can you get: pour in alcohol, light, place pot. Two cups boiling with less than 3/4 oz of denatured.
Do you notice any difference in speed or efficiency between denatured and pure methanol? I've been thinking of running a test comparing dentured and Heet.
Yes, you sent it in a bubble wrap envelope. It arrived just a little bent, but easily bent back.
Thnaks again.

My tests show denatured burns hotter than Heet. Pure methanol is for medicinal use only :mrgreen:

Thanks for the feedback, I'll use small boxes next time around. :)

I've been thinking of trying cylinders cut from Pringles cans. Sometimes You can find short
Pringles cans at convience stores. That, combined with a Bubble wrap mailer envelope
should work OK.

Cheers!

Good idea, those should work well.

I envisioned little children following behind the mailman with noses sniffing the air trying to figure out where the aroma is coming from. :)

Where did Richard go? Where is Cheat?

Found a copy of White Blaze Fever at the library and am 1/2 way through it. Looks to be an excellent read. Thanks Richard. It is along the lines of a journal with minimal history . The author is a 51 yr. old retired school teacher from Ohio, so I connected right awaybeing a 52 yr old education major; Hey, I can't help it if I decided to cut meat instead of teach ! :lol: It is not as hilarious as A Walk in the Woods but it will probably be in my top 5 AT reads.
