      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

One question about the video, why is the dude on the floor instead of using the table and chair right next to him?

Some of the really over the top ultralight gear ski mountaineers use these.

Mountaineers aren't acclimated to civilization.

 

, they set their stove on rocks, build windbreaks outa moar rocks, to shield the stove,

, an then sleep in a pile of rocks.

 

 

It's a cute hombrew,,

,although too fragile to live very long and dependent on alcohol.

 

 

but if you're doing stuff where you end up sleeping in rocks,

 

, get a Svea

"White gas,, Coleman fuel ,, much easier to find & <$

I tink higher energy density

 

The beer can has very wide flame distribution,

Svea is more focused @ ctr, to use smaller pots

 

it's a bit heavier than beer can, ,

reliable, reliable, reliable, reliable.

If only I knew where to find a beer can around here.......

If it's worth having one for a backup, it's worth having 12. Or 24.

 

On a side note, I see plenty of opportunity in waiting, there, for practising some remote first aid or even field-expedient suturing.

Over on Facebook, anarchist MisterMoon commented that it's a bit too easy to spill for use on a boat, something that crossed my mind as well. A flowing fire on a boat would be bad.

Even on land it needs to be level.

you really can never have enough raw materials waiting around to be made into more stoves.

I gave it a shot, but my knife wouldn't go through the bottles. I must've had the wrong kind of spare stoves on hand.
