Default Biolite Camp Stove

Ordered one of these today, it is on backorder, but will give a review once I get it and use it a few times.

Cool idea, but it seems bulky when you have to carry a pot in addition to that. It could also turn out to be a PITA when you need to start a fire for every meal, especially if it's wet, windy, or snowing. Looking forward to what you have to say about it.

Never had any problems finding dry tinder in any of those types of situations and that's all it needs to burn. And from the videos I've watched of people actually lighting them, they seem to fire up quickly.

Cool, I'm still interested in getting one. Would be interested in how it works with your time with the scouts. They bring up a good point on their site, just gather small twigs and stuff as you're walking along.
