    Thought we should start a thread for wilderness pics. Fun day out hiking. Did a little recon on an area I had not visited in a couple years. Looks like it's good for camping, as I did not see another Human foot print... I made a small fire for heat and made some lunch. Low impact!!!
    I scrapped the forest floor down to solid ground for my fire area. I did not make a fire ring, so I never walked even 3 feet away. I had all the fuel I needed with me before ignition.

    I hate alcohol stoves-they are crap!
    I like my little canister stove from brunton. It's very similar to the pocket rocket from MSR.


    Boiled me tea in 3.5 minutes from cold water.


    Cook up a couple dogs!

    Lunch!

    Kept the fire small, but it kept me warm.

    After I was finished i poured enough water into the pit to make soup. VERY IMPORTANT!!! NO coals, embers, can be alive. After that I covered the spot back over with the dirt I originally moved.

    Another angle show that not much sign of the fire remains..

    Hatchet sitting just left of where the fire was.


    Fun hike and good lunch...

    Denver area has not seen much snow. It was in the mid 40's that day. I believe the green ground cover is poison oak. Some people are allergic to it. I'm not. Could be wrong.

    G'day Chris

    • cody1 Said:
    I like my little canister stove ....


    Yeah I like them too, especially over here in summer (as it's not a good idea to have open fires in Australia during the Bushfire season )

    BTW, I've just ordered a Bushbuddy wood burning stove. I'll let you know how it goes after I've used it enough to be able to give an informed opinion

    BTW, for having a hatchet along with you when you venture into the wilderness.



    Kind regards
    Mick

    If push comes to shove, I will take my hatchet over a large chopper every time. I love my husky 12".




    A noticable improvement in chopping ability... I did the rehandle last year, and then was a bad dad. Hatchet was in my pack and a water bottle leaked. It sat in water for about 2 weeks and got pretty rusted. It's clean again, and back in use...

    I love the canister stoves. I have been using them since they came out in the mid 80's. The fuel mixture they now use works well in colder weather, and the adjustability of the flame makes it a no brainer for me. you can simmer, boil, whatever. The little cans of fuel last much longer than many expect. Once empty, take a punch can opener, and put a hole in it, then it is recyclable. They are light weight as well. Fuel cannot spill inside your pack. I have never had one fail.
