I did post it. It shut down the web site for an emergancy for 20 min "for repairs" and then it got deleted imediatly.

Now Mugs, we had the "guts" not to delete a certain post about the spread of UL hiking, didn't we? Mostly, we worry about truly rude behavior or posts that advocate unsafe suggestions. A bit of reasoned controversy is OK"
"

That was kinda my whole point...that we are allowed to say some wild and crazy stuff.

Why is that not a surprise? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

It created MANY great points of discussion here, so I figure we were all winners.

Yoda, I am, of stove makers, I am the Ultimate SRAFL (Shining Rubbing Alcohol Fueled Light) that will lead you out of your shellac thinner and Heet fume induced darkness.

My Colima stove is made from cans too. But, being here in Mexico they are bean and pepper cans. OK! That does it... if you don't stop laughing I will cut off the entire Tequila supply to the USA. This will cause all salt mines and Lime groves up there to go out of business and then you'll regret making fun of my Volcano Colima stove. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

My Colima has a built in wind/snow/rain screen, built in fuel storage, built in secondary primer for freezing temps, can be tilted nearly horizontal with no fuel spillage due to the built in catch basin, and has a built in fuel over flow reservoir, can be moved around with your bare hands while operating, can be placed on any surface while operating with no damage done, and I could go on and on.

We already know that pepsi can stoves have none of the afore mentioned convenience or safety features, but perhaps we could compare strength and durability. I can stand on the Colima with one foot, with zero visible damage to the stove. I weigh 225. Could you please stand on the pepsi can stove and then post a photo of it here. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> Dare not mess with the Ultimate SRAFL - Brum

I joined a couple of months back, mentioned that pepsi can stoves were dangerous due to poor design and promptly got flamed (no pun intended).

One fellow got so riled that he bragged how he lived and played in his wool shirt for 4 days at a time, was currently visiting his friends while dressed in the same 4 day old shirt, and "they were not offended". He lives in Iran. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> Go figure.


Come on, admit it, you intended that pun. You don't have to lie to us for us to like you. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Only 4 days! He was only half way there. His friends weren't offended because they were doing the same, but with cotton.

Like many others, I had pretty much stopped posting at Practical Backpacking at least partly due to the hyper-controls. However, earlier this week, I posted over there and got a nice response from one of the moderators (not Reality), so I thought "hey, maybe I'll give this another try."

Today, someone posted asking for a gear list; I replied that I'd be glad to email him mine if he'd send me a private mail with his email address. (I've done this quite often here, with some very pleasant exchanges with other members.) I check back later, and find my post has been deleted. Plus a note from Reality saying that no one is allowed to use an alternative method to disseminate his gear list.

He deleted my post from his website, rudely. I deleted his website from my bookmarks, permanently. Life's too short.

I would be very interested in seeing your stove. It sounds like a proverbial "rock". I am very interested in taking a look at that. I have some pretty darn good pepsi can stoves but, as you said, they don't have the features that you mentioned yours having. I would also be interested in how much it weighs and whether you have instructions to build one? I'm telling you when it comes to light weight trekking stuff, you build it and they will come. I'd love to see it. Can you send pics of it. Any thing would be appreciated. Thanks...Happy Trekking...sabre11004...

The first step that you take will be one of those that will get you there !!!!! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
