Trioxane Fuel Test Canteen Stove Ramen Noodles

Testing out my canteen stove with it's WWII originated fuel source, Trioxane Solid Fuel tablets. All in all, the the Trioxane did what it was supposed to do, but I'm not so sure that it's won over my heart compared to my Supercat (cat can) alcohol stove. To heat up about 23 of a USGI surplus canteen cup full of water to cook my Ramen noodles, it took about 23 of a fuel tablet and about 12 minutes. It should be noted that this was over the course of 3 separate quarter sized chunks. If i had just burned a 23 size piece from the gate, I'm sure it would have burned hotter and reduced the heating time. That being said, after 12 minutes it never did reach a full boil. It was more of a simmer, but quite enough to cook my noodles or brew some coffee. I bought a box containing 3 tablets for $3 at my local Army surplus store, so I'll be keeping the other 2 tabs in my pack as an emergency fuel source. They also make an excellent emergency fire starter from what I've found. I recently used the remaining 13 of a tablet to start a camp fire using damp wood after a day of rain, so they've earned their keep in that department. Just build a semi tee-pee around the Trioxane at the base, light it and sit back. Easy. Very comparable to the old wax and dryer lint trick, but most likely at a lighter weight (of course the lint & leftover wax is practically free). In the future I''ll be testing and documenting some Esbit solid fuel tabs for comparison. For now though, denatured alcohol in my Cat Can Stove will be my go to fuel source when a campfire isn't available or worth the effort during backpacking trips. It's cheap, light weight and burns hot. Trioxane will be my back-up.

8 MSR Pocket Rocket Knock Off? Cheap Backpacking Stove Test

Taking a look at an $8 clone of the MSR Pocket Rocket Stove. I recently ordered this piece of little piece of gear as an inexpensive way to start experimenting with Canister Stoves. My current go-to setup is a DIY alcohol stove that I love for the light weight (ultralight actually), but Winter is coming, along with cold weather, and the price was right. See where this is going? The manufacturer claimed a weight of 3.9 ounces. According to my scale, that includes the case (that I'll never use), so the true weight rang it at 3.25 ounces. I didn't have an MSR Pocket Rocket to weigh at the time of filming, but the REI website lists it at 3oz, so the weights are similar. The $8 clone also boasts a Piezo Ignition system, which the real Pocket Rocket actually doesn't come equipped with. Most wouldn't rely solely on a Piezo ignition without an a reliable, back-up fire source though, so that's not really the end of the world. It also probably adds a bit of weight, but if you're hardcore enough, you could probably snip it off. Now let's see if it works...

Pot Cozy Construction Testing

Pot Cozy: Construction & Testing I am currently in the process of putting together the "Cooking" compartment for my new bug out bag (BOB). One of the items I would like to include, which I do not see with a lot of other bug out bags, is something carried by ultra-light backpackers called a "Pot Cozy". A pot cozy is a simple and elegant alternative to simmering that will dramatically save fuel and provides a convenient carrying case for your cook pot. It provides an insulating layer around your pot to help reduce heat loss during simmering. In this video I follow some instructions available online (search Google) for constructing a pot cozy and then I test it out by cooking Mac & Cheese. This is my first attempt at making a pot cozy, so their is a little trial and error. Please feel free to leave constructive comments regarding this topic.

Camping the Dolly Sods Wilderness Fall Backpacking in West Virginia

3 Days of Fall Camping, Hiking and Backpacking in Dolly Sods, West Virginia. GPS data at http:www.sintax77.comFor this adventure, we'll be exploring a very unique area of West Virginia - the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area, within the Monongahela National Forest. Being a high altitude plateau sitting at around 4,000 feet (the highest plateau east of the Mississippi river), the Sods offer a stark contrast to the surrounding West Virginian ecosystem. In fact, you may feel more like you're in Canada than West Virginia.For an overview and listing of my gear check out this video: by my wife and our two close friends, this was a 3 day, 2 night backpacking adventure. Each day's track data was recorded to individual GPX data files, available for download over at my website for those interested.Parking: Bear Rocks Trailhead 39.06352, -79.30326Trails Used in Order:Day One (11.5 Miles):Bear Rocks Trail 522 Raven Ridge Trail 521 Rocky Ridge Trail 524 Blackbird Knob Trail 553 (only for a very short segment) Big Stone Coal Trail 513 Setup Camp a bit before Little Stone Coal TrailDay 2 (9.5 Miles):Dunkenbarger Trail 558 Little Stone Coal Trail 552 Red Creek Trail 514 (Out-n-back excursion on Breathed Mountain Trail 553) Setup camp along Red Creek Trail between Breathed Mt and Blackbird KnobDay 3 (6 Miles):Red Creek Trail 514 Blackbird Knob Trail 511 Upper Red Creek Trail 509 Dobbin Grade Trail 526 - Prepare for mud and thigh-deep sinkholes!

DIY Ultralight Cookset Dirt Cheap! 3oz

Making a ultralight cooking set for backpacking and hiking using household items without spending a dime.Sure it's no Titanium pot, but it also didn't cost me $50 - $100. Honestly, I think the Titanium cook-sets look pretty cool, but I've got plenty of other hiking gear that I deserves an upgrade before I do that.For now, the solution was pretty simple:1 Cat Can Stove - Made from a 3oz can of Fancy Feast Cat Food 1 29oz Tin Can - In my case, it was some canned tomatoes. They were quite tasty. Pieces of aluminum foil to use as a custom lightweight lid. Some denatured alcohol from my basement to use as a cheap, reliable fuel source. Plastic Water Bottle to hold the fuel. Total Weight without Fuel: 3oz Total Weight with enough Fuel for 4 batches of Ramen Noodles: 5.25ozOptional - 1 Light My Fire Spork (Any fast food utensile could work too) Optional - Plastic Medicine Cup to measure fuel (you know, from that old bottle of 'tussin)So there you have it, simple, effective, lightweight and practically free. Weight-wise it's hard to beat. Now, ounce for ounce, alcohol doesn't necessarily;y have the best weight to energy ratio, but where it shines is it's ability to scale to your needs. You can bring exactly as much (or little) as you need. Compare that to an MSR fuel canister (white gas etc) weighing in at about a half pound a piece. Of course, the canister gas stoves stomp all over my little set-up in terms of cooking and boiling times. And don't even bring up the issue of melting snow, another win for the pressurized gas stove. Both systems have their advantages, so you'll have to take close a look at your needs before choosing what goes in your pack. For my needs though, this will work just fine.Now I'll just sit back and wait for someone to tell me how dangerous cooking in a tin can is for my health :DAll content, including music and sound effects, is original and created by myself.

Boasting .1 micro filtration, a 100,000 gallon life, multiple ways to use and a backflush cleaning system, this package is a steal at only $25.

My Ultra Light Camp Cooking

To see more light weight camping gear CLICK HERE http:youtu.beAwTbPDZVGdMVideo of my ultra light CAMP COOKING set at a private camp site in the mountains of the Great Dividing Range in Australia. When you're hiking and backpacking it can be important to have light weight gear, unless you're a strong bastard who just likes carrying heavy stuff! lolThis camping cookware set is made from titanium thanks to the legends at Snow Peak! I've owned various camping stoves and cookware equipment but nothing comes close to the compact and light weight Snow Peak range. Titanium is stronger and lighter than aluminium. The only downside of titanium is it's more expensive and is a bit slower to heat up than aluminium.I have more gear reviews, camping and hiking information at my channel. There will be lots more videos coming.Don't forget to subscribe CAPTIONS TRANSCRIPT I made this video to thank Snow Peak for making the ultimate cook set, best in the whole world. Here's their new 300ml cup. Fits inside the old 450ml, which then fits inside the 600ml. that then fits into the 700ml. theres the lid for the 700ml, 700ml fits into the 900ml. It all packs inside itself. Heres an alteration I made, I made a lid for the 600ml mug by cutting the top off a tin can. Theres the 700ml with its lid. 900ml has a fry pan lid. The new 300ml titanium mug is very impressive. Inside I can put a cleaning pad, pepper, salt, some foil. Unfortunately the home made 600ml lid doesn't fit inside. When having a campfire in the woods its best to have a very small fire for safety, it also wastes less of natures resources.

How To Make A Zero Alcohol Stove

"Stove Secrets" - Alcohol stove builds, tips, tricks, and secrets for the true DIY gear junkie. No fancy or expensive tools & machinery required! In this project we tackle a very simple, yet innovative alcohol stove build... "The Zero Stove". With no jets to drill, no separate pot stand needed, and no inner core, this stove is the sheer essence of simplicity... hence the name "Zero". All that is needed to make this non-pressurized, double-walled alcohol stove is a couple of aluminum beer cans and a few common household tools. This lightweight alcohol stove is super easy to make and works like a champ... a definite step up from the ol' "cat can" stoves that most of us DIY hacks have thrown together. All-in-all, the Zero Stove's no-frills design makes for a sturdy and efficient little alcohol stove for ultralight and lightweight backpacking. Best of all... it's free! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stats: Weight - 14 grams Fuel Capacity - 34 oz. Boil Time - 5 minutes (controlled environment) Total Burn Time - 9.5 - 10 minutesSpecial Considerations: - JB Weld recommended for joining components - Priming of stove greatly enhances performance - Burn time can be extended by adding 18" to outer wall ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Due to the interest in the previous "Stove Secrets" giveaways, I will be giving away yet another alcohol stove for this video (you can see it via the link below). To enter simply leave a comment as usual and then include a line at the end that says "Count me in". I'll pick a winner in the next episode of "Stove Secrets" and get one of these cool little alcohol stove out to someone. Thanks for playin' along ;-) *Link to stove being given away: http:www.intenseoutdoorgear.comAluminum-Bottle-Stove.html ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Congratulations to YouTube user "rabies61" on being randomly selected as the winner from the last episode of "Stove Secrets" :-) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Music by Kevin MacLeod @ Graphics by Devon McKay ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Copyright 2013 - IntenseAngler Outdoors - All Rights Reserved

3 Nights on the PA Appalachian Trail Zombie Preperation Hike

In this installment we visit a section of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania. Entering via the trail head in Port Clinton, PA, we set out for a taste of some Fall backpacking. For those of you familiar with the Allentown Cabela's, it's the range of mountains to your right when you're standing out front. It was far from sub-zero, but certainly colder than we experienced in our previous adventures.Most importantly, we used this trip as an oppurtunity to sharpen our skills for that pesky Zombie invasion that seems to always be right around the corner. On the menu: About 7 miles of night hiking to warm up the old headlamps, some gear stashing psysical camo practice, off trail bushwacking, and plenty of rule #1, Cardio! This was followed by some much needed Limbering Up, and a definate avoidence of bathrooms.We also did a bit of sightseeing too. Most notably, a spot called 'The Pinnacle'. Apparently it's quite popular with the local day hikers. we got the hell out of there and back to the bush.
