Bit of a thread bump
Some great kit and great and advice in here. My question is what type of stove is better in a BOB situation? Obviously the nature of a BOB requires
about 3 days worth of equipment so depending on the situation would you go with something stealthy that wont get you noticed or would you go with
whichever is best regardless of smoke and/or flame? Since its only 3 days or so my general thinking is go with the best (coupled with a good mix of
efficiency) but I'm not exactly a survival master (or apprentice for that matter ) but I am slowly getting there.
The kelly kettle seems pretty cool, being able to burn what you can find seems invaluable as it negates the need to have fuel which means your not
risking shelf life sitting in your BOB/BOL and it gets rid of unnecessary weight, but how good are they compared to normal fuel stoves? I'm inclined
to think I should take one of each and use the kelly kettle type stove after the fuel runs out should I unfortunately be there for longer than 3 days
but then it adds more weight. Really is a rock and a hard place this survival business!!
