In a previous comment to Irishdutchuncle I promised to review a stove for him.
This is the MSR Whisperlite and it’s probably one of the best backpacking stoves I’ve ever found for cold weather operations.
Propane and some of the other gas fuels out there don’t work that well in cold weather. This runs on liquid fuel and works great even in the coldest of temps.
As you’ll see in the video this is not a stove you want to light in your tent, so be warned.
Also, I’m still playing around with different video formats, music, and what not, so I hope it’s not too “over the top.”
I’m going to start referring to this as my “unscripted video productions” because I just wing it and I since I normally don’t talk all that much tend to fumble around sometimes. What usually happens is that I’m in the woods with ten minutes to spare so I whip out my phone and make an impromptu video about something.
Believe it or not I actually have a couple of decent cameras and a tripod, but rarely carry them around because they’re a pain. You’ll see me set my phone in the snow, drop it, and do other unkind things to it as I make more of these little vids.
Anyway, apologies for the unprofessional videos. I’ll try to force myself to bring my better camera along to give a better production.
Sounds off below!
