Google hobo stove. I noticed Wilkos had a £3 stainless steel.cutlery drainer. Not as fuel efficient but cheap and easy start to burning wood. If you like it then get a £25 or £50 woodgas stove, the good one that'll last longer once you have got used to burning wood for fuel on the road. That's what...

Had and sold the led lenser xeo 19 r. to name a small few. Out of all the headtorches I've owned the Nao and nao 2 are equally the best by far. G...
