Honey Stove with Primus Micron

Using the Honey Stove from BackPackingLight.co.uk with Primus Micron gas stove.

I have had the Micron for two years now, and I’d just use a thin foil windshield instead of the Honey Stove. So don’t take the above video seriously.

I am more interested in being able to eke out a gas canister by using alternative fuel (mainly woody material). To sit outside, by the light of a safe open fire, leaving no trace, harming no living creatures (excluding ticks and midges and the occasional moth that gets eaten by accident). It goes beyond convenience cooking, where some of the superfast stoves just miss a ‘ping’ sound effect when the food is ready or water boiled.

If the outdoors is only about being fast paced, then why not just take the car and be done with it? We all hike our own hikes. Not like the song.

I need a shot of coffee in the morning so gas it is and shall always be. :o)

However, there is no substitute for a living flame and my own wood-burner will be making an appearance in 2 weeks time. There's an entry on me blog, May 2007, with photies btw.

For some strange brian-warped reason, I had gotten it into my head that it was next week. That's why I write stuff in MS Outlook.

It'll be good to see one live, it always looked so SteamPunk (BigLink)
