    I actually wrote the article. I just wanted to share it on Bill's forum due to the recent posts about Backwoods "user" and "safe queen" knives. All of my blades from Bill are definitely users, so I just wanted to share the article showing his knives being used in the outdoors.

    If the weather would cooperate I would be out beating on my multitasker.
    Oh well,I'll have the blackout by next weekend & hopefully I can take 'em both out for a good beating.

    DOH!Sorry Marc.His blog,your article.:eek:
    I really liked the article.I was thinking about getting a mini gas stove for my BOB (& probably will)but got an emberlit first because I like burning wood & it's plentifull & the emberlit folds flat.
    A gas stove has advantages also & I will get one once I narrow down which one I want.
    I think for BOB purposes though the emberlit is perfect.

    Mykel,

    Those Emberlit stoves are AWESOME aren't they!! Even if I'm carrying an Esbit mini-stove, MSR Pocket Rocket, or a Jet Boil system......I will always have the Emberlit in my back pack or vehicle bag. Like you said, fuel is plentiful and free for the Emberlit...:thumbup:

    I'm really liken' the Pocket Rocket for a mini gas stove so far.
    Still looking around though.
    Never tried an alcohol stove & don't like the idea of a liquid fuel,but they sound pretty good otherwise &
    are easy to make.

    The first stove I bought for backpacking was a Sierra Zip Stove. About ....damn 20 years ago!!
    Doesn't seem that long till I start thinking about it. The new ones are a little better design than mine, better wind
    screen, battery isn't under the "fire box". Dang thing is handy; twigs, pine cones, tree bark. Throw it in, light
    it, open the damper and turn on the blower. In a couple of minutes it will have water boiling.
