That, is one toy I must have!!

Although, upon recollection, I think I might wait.

I have....

Coleman 2 burner low pressure stove

Coleman Gas Bottle Top Ring

Kookaburra Gas Bottle Top Ring Piezo

Coleman Dual Fuel Single Burner

Cobb Oven

Dream Pot

MSR Dragonfly

I reckon that's enough..............

........... but..........

I think it would be really cool to try to make one at work. Get a Computer Fan from Jaycar or someone, Buy in a sheet of Titanium just for the job. Connect it to a 12 volt power supply.

Reminds me of the bloody chip heater Tracy & I used to use for the shower, burns pine cones & stuff. We used to leave this old bent coat hanger poking out the side, to stoke it up if we were washing our hair, 'cause it was taking too long. Water starts to get cold, reach around the cold wet plastic shower curtain, wriggle the coat hanger in the fire, and it would roar to like again, and deposit a heap of black ash on the wet shower curtain!!

Bloody thing..............

Lone Wolf, what do you think of the Cobb oven? And the dream pot for that matter.

Cobb is EXCELLENT!

I only take it away in the winter months, and cook up wicked roasts.

Dream Pot.............

It never sees the light of day, it doesn't suit my style of camping ( solo, on the move ).

I am not saying it's no good, it just doesn't suit me.

Cool! Another MSR Dragonfly owner! :)

I admit that I bought it for multi-day hikes, but this stove is the best I've ever owned - across all stove types. Unbelievably light and small - yet so powerful is sounds like a jet engine (even from a distance) when it's on full-blast - and you'd better make sure that your pots and pans are thick enough in the base because it will blast a hole straight through them at full tilt. One great thing about the Dragonfly over other MSR stoves is the infinite adjustability - which is reasonably unique in the small hiking stove world.

I still carry it in the fourby and use it to boil large pots of water for the veggies or pasta - there isn't anything quicker on the market IMHO to boil water fast.

Thaks Lone Wolf. Yeah Chrispy, the MSR Dragon fly rocks. It will bring a pot of snow and ice to boiling point almost as quick as you can get the tea bags and mugs ready. I bought mine originaly for hiking, ski touring and sea kayaking but I've gone soft and only really use it while motorcycle touring.
