      Hi Ed,

      I don't know anyone that has used one of these.  I talked to Doug last week about something and just had a look over the things he sells.  I was really surprised at the low weight of his lightest stove.

      On the question about using charcoal, I think charcoal puts of carbon monoxide which would not be so good.  It might be fun to do some testing with one of these.  At 17 ounces for his lightest stove a light hiker could about carry one of these and still be under 25 pounds.

      The Titanium Goat stove does look good Bill. Do you know of anyone who's

      tried one? How long does it burn before needing more fuel? Could you use

      charcoal instead of wood? .Ed

      Check out one of these wood stoves from Titanium Goat. Look at the lightest

      version. Just over 1 pound.

      If you had something like a tent around and over your hammock one of these

      might work.

      If it was setup right you might be able to feed the stove without getting

      out of your hammock.

      My son spent a couple of days in Maine camping out in 10 degree

      weather. I asked him how he keep warm and he told me he used an

      emergeny car powerstart battery assy. and plugged in his small heater

      set on 500 watts and it lasted two 8 hr nights. Here's another thought,

      use a winter tarp with a Zodi propane heater. Lugging around Powerstart

      car batteries and Zodi heaters only adds a couple of more pounds

      conpared with lugging around underquits and more padding. Each style of

      camping will have different sets of parameters. The style of camping

      using heaters and winter tents will only appeal to campers who pull

      small sleds while snowshoeing in on flat terrain and could care less

      about adding an extra couple of pounds. I think using special designed

      winter hammocks is the way to go for winter hammocking rather then

      modifing a 3 season hammock for winter conditions. Just my thoughts and

      nothing is set in stone.
