Alcohol or Meths

I used to use a Colman Multifuel and it was great and lasted a long time. But I was in Arabia and could not get a replacement generator (that
icky that pre-heats the fuel). So I went back to basics with my old army stove which burns alcohol, I have two. I got a honey stove and an espirit holder, so can cook full meals and they pack down very small. I even made a burner out of a Axe deoderant can. Not as good but it worked.
I also have a small table top BBQ I got in Salta, Argentina. Great for charcoal/wood fires when I want, to save on alcohol and can find the fuel, it straps onto my top box perfikt.
I can use the BBQ as a stand /windbreak for the alcohol burners and I also have a plate for the BBQ to act as a food warmer.
The honey stove (S/S) will also burn just about anything including plastic but that is a bit hard to clean off.
I know this sounds a bit much, but I live on the road for anything up to a year when travelling.
Second star on the right.
Then straight on till morning.
