Cooking with gas(oline)!


So I finally took the plunge and purchased a stove. The camping I’ve done to date usually revolves around a pub or venue with food, and I’ve never really been bothered cooking my own.

I’ve used trangias in the past and they’re pretty neat, but slow. I looked at the gas offerings, jet boils look good but you need to reliably be able to get gas. In the end I plumped for a multi fuel job.

The optimus runs on anything, diesel, petrol and kerosene. If you have fuel for the bike, you have fuel for the stove. (And with that 36l tank I can afford to burn a few sausages!).

Tested this weekend to great effect, even if I did only manage to make hot drinks. Being petrol driven I didn’t even need a lighter, just a spark. Very useful. Just one little thing on the huge list of being prepared, but keep ticking them off….

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
