Wind screen aka solar sun tan reflector

Postby zelph » Tue Nov 30, 2010 12:42 am

My wife identified this as a sun tan reflective screen. I found one last year and now recently found another in the local thrift store. I've used my original as a windscreen in some of my wood burner testing. The last one I got for my wife's car cook kit. It has 2 hinged sides, folds flat..............I like them. Watch for them in your thrift shops. I think they were a tv ad special way back when...

Is is made from aluminum? If not, it would be perfect for a stove idea I've had. Ridgerunner need to do some more thriftin' !

We say you are "thrifty" :D

I'm leaving mine alone, just as is. My wife loves me more since I got one for her :mrgreen:
