    Dragged my old Hank Roberts stove out of my mororcycle kit for a light up. Glad I got some yellow flame at start up, because apparently I can't get a decent picture of Mr. Roberts in blue.

    "Blue flame shots" are best taken at night, without flash. The light of the flames provides nice dramatic shadows, and the blue flames really show up.

    My Prepo model 105 picnic stove is in the SRG here.

    It dates from the mid '50s to early '60s, and uses disposable butane canisters. There's a photo of it sitting on top of a Coleman 413 in the SRG.

    @ArchMc ,

    Mac, neat stove, and very neat Titanium kettle up top! Is that the 800ml tea kettle offering from Evernew? Looks like it. we have considered getting one of those, after using our 1.3l (1300ml). How does it work for you? We've gotten used to the 1300ml pot, and would love to find a kettle like yours, but one that holds the 1300ml. Still....it's a cool little kettle, nonetheless!! Thanks for sharing it, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi Mark,
    You know your kettles!

    It works great for making a couple cups of tea. As you’ve guessed, it’s not really big enough for a group or for snow melting and such. Perfect for a cool weather day hike when you want a hot drink, or on a light weight overnight. Speaking of which . . . aren’t we overdue for hiking a piece of PCT up in your neighborhood?

    @ArchMc ,

    Hi, Arch,

    Thanks for the info on the little kettle. Doing the PCT from Big Bear, to the Mojave River Dam, or Lake Silverwood, would be great to repeat! I'm certain that we would not recognize the trail, for the most part, since we did it in 1991! I'd have to look back at my journal and photos from that trip, to recall, exactly when we traversed that stretch of the trail. Since we work at home, now, we may well be able to arrange some time off, to do that, including Sweet Bride, IF we can get into condition for it!! Neither of us had horsed anything more than a day pack, in many years..... or, even decades!! Something to which we could certainly plan, and look forward, though! WE're planning to so some overnights, just to get used to packing everything along, again. Still want to do that one day hike we discussed, too, a while back. Great idea, and I hope we can make it all come to pass! Talk soon, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark

    Doc this stove was originally posted soon after it's discovery in France in 2010, here.

    Thanks, John and Gary!

    I guess I missed this one, first time around, back in 2010. It was worth waiting for, but I am sorry I missed seeing it back then! Thanks to you both, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Mark
