- Hi Scott! The stoves are great, no question. I don t use one. They re especially good when cooking vs. cooking over an open fire. The fire was just for warmthMessage 44 of 44 , Nov 19, 2011View SourceHi Scott!
The stoves are great, no question. I don't use one. They're especially good when cooking vs. cooking over an open fire. The fire was just for warmth for me so open fire is ok.
Tent or some sort of shelter is necessary this time of year here. Its very wet with frequent rain. I use a small tent.

Do you burn your wood in an open fire pit or did you bring
any kind of collapsable stove ? The stoves consume much
less wood and make your wood go a lot farther.
Also, did you bring a small tent or did you sleep in the open ?

Â Didn't baby the boat, but brought duct tape expecting to need it. Â Ran it up on beaches, on rocks also while fully loaded (this accidentally!) and dragged over beaver dams. Â Driving with it on my car has always worried me especially when in windy conditions. Â Over 900 kilometers of driving on this trip, almost half in super windy crosswind conditions, at normal highway speeds. Â All this without any damage whatsoever beyond paint scuffs. Â The fabric (only single layer on my boat) is fine. Â I'm very impressed!!
