It was 30 degrees when I made the video. I'm sure that the wick will perform the same if it's -10 degrees. I'll just have to wait for the temps to drop again to do a "reality" test.

Your weather is showing signs of spring :roll: some folks got it nice :D

Do you have the ones with wicks ready to ship? (I ordered one last week, and I'm just wondering when to expect it... though it's not likely that I'll get a chance to use it before I head for Kilimanjaro, since I'm leaving in 10 days!!!)

Thanks!

Jan uary 26th is when I posted the photo of the completed burners. If you ordered on that day you will receive one with a wick. Have you practiced with the Woodgaz stove according to the instructions at Photobucket? Be sure to have a windscreen of some sorts up there on Kilimanjaro. We wish you well on your up coming adventure. Be sure to take several cameras :D

I haven't been able to use the Woodgaz stove yet... when I was out camping in the snow, it rained pretty much constantly. It's been hard to avoid the rain lately. :-/

And with no job at the moment, plus the Kilimanjaro trip coming soon, I haven't been getting out nearly as much as I would like. At this point, instead of scrambling to try to get out before I head for Kili, I'm going to try to get myself to the point where I'll be ready when I get back, so I'll be able to make up for lost time. And hopefully score some print sales...

I'll definitely be bringing back as many photos as I can -- I'm planning on taking my 4x5 to Kili... with any luck I'll get a chance to get some black and white shows of the Snows of Kilimanjaro by moonlight... :)

I understand clearly now, you are located in the rain capitol of the U.S.A....good ole Seattle, Washington :mrgreen: probably the mushroom capitol of the world :mrgreen: Realityguy has been stashing his collection of wood under tarps so he might have some dry by summer :D

Well, there's the irony... historically, Seattle's rainfall is so mild (though continuous) that it rates among the 10 driest cities in the continental US! Except this year, when it's been one Pineapple Express after another around here. It's been either clear and cold, or mild and raining, not the usual Seattle mist. Sigh.

With any luck, the next time I go snow camping, it will snow rather than rain!

I remember that "mist". I got wet just the same.

The "Snows of Kilimanjaro" sounds like an adventure movie.

Maybe you will see a "movie star"! Maybe you will be a "movie star"!

That sounds like a lot more fun than working in a cubicle!

Usually you can escape the mist by going uphill. Not so this year :-/

The "Snows of Kilimanjaro" is Part 1... Part 2 is "Storms in Africa" (where we'll be chasing the Great Migrations on safari in the Serengeti and the Ngorogoro Crater). :)
