    Hi Men,

    Did I miss a photo shoot in my absence? If not, I think it?s about time that we organized another shoot. We had great participation in the Optimus 8 Series Shoot in December.:D

    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/

    How about a general Alcohol/Meths photo shoot. We can include the Trangia, Swedish Military Stoves, Turm and Even ?Pop Can? stoves. 111T and Barrabruce have recently posted some cool ?spiritburners?. There must be some really interesting stoves out there. I was thinking the weekend of May 24-25 could work.

    What do you think?

    Cheers,

    Manny

    The best I can do is round up all my alko stoves, set 'em up and take fotey grafs. Y'all think getting 'em lit and cooking something, if only boiling water would be suitable?

    I'll set planks over sawhorses for a table, and set my camera on a tripod so I can be in the picture genteely sipping a cuppa. That'll impress the rubes.

    Hi Gerry,

    That would be perfect. Even one stove perking some coffee would be great. Think of it as an alcoholic weekend without the hangover. :lol: There hasn't been much of a response so far. Time to advertise in the Club House.

    Take care,

    Manny

    I'll do what I can. Probably just with a Trangia, though.

    Hi Men,

    We had an unused school snow day so my district added a day onto the Memorial Day weekend. I decided to get a jump start on the ?Spiritburner? Stove Shoot and took the family on a short hike to Nuclear Lake.

    NuclearLakeTopo.jpg

    We followed the Appalachian Trail as it crossed over several small streams and through this interesting rock formation.

    SplitRockAT.jpg

    The lake was the site of a former plutonium processing plant. An accident in 1972 contaminated some of the area, but now the site is completely clean. You still hear the odd story of deformed animals and the like. :shock: (Location 1)

    NuclearLake.jpg

    I fired up my Trangia 25-2 and we had ?Cup of Soup? with our lunch. Its been surprisingly cool in the Northeast this spring and the soup was a welcome addition to our meal.

    T25NuclearLake.jpg

    There is nothing like spending time outdoors with your family. :D (Location 2)

    It?s time to get out there and light up those alcohol stoves. I look forward to your posts. =D>

    Your New York Stove Brother,

    Manny

    p.s. Hey Bruce, thanks for getting us started. You have to love the Trapper 81. :)

    Sorry folks, I posted my defloration of a Virgin Taiwanese Tourist in another location. Not sure how to move it, so here's a link:

    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/9450

    Moderators, feel free to move it over!

    Manny: that's a lovely spot, I'm keener on a Trangia now I've seen the adapter to turn it into a "Kap Arctic"
    Bruce: I'm getting withdrawal symptoms from my Optimus 81, which is on a slow boat to Qatar....

    Cheers, Tom

    Too tired to think or do anything special.
    So I just slapped a bit of meths in this cup burner.

    Good morning Fellow Stovies,

    Since it?s the weekend of the Spiritburner Photoshoot, I decided to bake some muffins using a Trangia Burner and the T28 Base. A while ago I posted a link to a Whiteblaze.com that gave instructions on making a homemade Bakepacker. Here?s mine. The parts are made out of an old disposable pie tin.

    Betty Crocker makes a number of easy ?add water? muffin mixes in a convenient size for packing.

    Ingredients.jpg

    Ready to bake. The pot is from an old cook kit and holds about two quarts of water.

    ReadytoBake.jpg

    I use my MSR windscreen to conserve heat. After the water starts to boil, I put the simmering ring on the burner. I was afraid of all the water boiling off, so I added a couple of ounces after about 10 minutes.

    And the finished product. No browning but cooked through and very tasty. Who says you can?t bake with alcohol!

    Done.jpg

    Mmmmm!

    Yum.jpg

    I hope you all have a great day. Keep the stove photos coming.

    Cheers,

    Manny

    p.s.

    Tom, Wow a "Virginal Sacrifice". :shock:

    Bill, that is a very neat stove. Is it your design?

    Bruce, I'm coming over for supper. :lol:

    Gary, Fire that sucker up! :twisted:

    Hi gang,
    Thought I'd show off some of my Meths stoves.

    DSCF0040.jpg
    Left to Right: Clikstand, Black Fly III with Hinnie Post, Atomic, White Box stove, Homemade version of White Box, Homemade Turbo Cat, and Penny Stove.

    Now a better picture of each one.

    DSCF0048.jpg
    Clickstand with mini Trangia. In my mind the Clickstand is one of the best stands for the mini Trangia's. It is rock solid, you'd swear it was made out of 1/8" stock

    DSCF0049.jpg
    Minibull Black Fly III with Hinnie Pot

    DSCF0050.jpg

    DSCF0051.jpg
    White Box stove

    DSCF0052.jpg
    My Homemade version of the White Box stove

    DSCF0053.jpg
    Homemade Turbo Cat

    DSCF0054.jpg
    Homemade Penny stove

    Sorry about some of the photos being sideways. I edited them in PB but it didn't take, next time I will use one of my photo editors before saving to PB.

    I burn Heet in the yellow bottle (gas line antifreeze product in USA)

    Let's all burn some alcohol this weekend. God Bless

    It IS burning, very weakly. If I pump frantically, the flame builds, but by the time I pick up my camera to snap a shot, it dies way down. I'm tuning-in from Chicago O'Hare, and I promise to give it a thorough going-through when I get home week after next. Keep those photos coming!

    Best...
    Gary
