March 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #56: Insulating A Camp Stove

Tip of the Week

Depending on your location and whether or not you camp out, you need to consider if and how you will be cooking your food. If you use a propane or butane camp stove while hiking and trekking, you can increase its efficiency in cold weather by insulating it from the ground. 

* Cut out a circular disk a little larger than the base of your fuel canister from an old computer mouse pad. The extra insulation helps the canister deliver fuel more efficiently. 
* Putting a light windscreen around the stove will trap some of the stove´s heat and also improve performance.
