Survival stove

I bet not many survivalists and backpackers don't have a pumped white gas or butane camp stove.

But who has a survivalist wood camp stove?

Like this one:

I like to have one on hand for a backup or for when the standard stove fuel runs out.

It's a little heavy, can be a pain when dry twigs are not available, would be a pain to clean and, overall, not a very quick stove.

But good to have in the quiver. It can almost always be made to work, when nothing else will.

I'm playing around with mine on the back sidewalk, experimenting with fire starters and fuel. I will try some charcoal - maybe crushed up a little so it can be dropped in between the top cross members. I imagine that would be a good cooking fuel. I'll try it once and see how the metal holds up to such high, localized heat.

115 + 115 = 230

IMHO, .....

#1. You can always make a fire with wood without a stove.
#2. I have thought about making a small coffee can (or smaller can) wood burning stove with electric fan to make everything burn hotter.
One day, I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine.

I think it's kinda cool.

I have one that's similar and was a friction of the cost, it's steel rather than stainless. If I were packing as light as possible it would still be accompanying me.

If it makes you happy then go for it. You could accomplish the same thing...minus folding flat...with a tin can with a few holes punched/drilled in it. Lighter weight and much cheaper.
