    A packable woodstove in longterm survival would be a good investment it give you a contained fire that you can cook on and heat for a shelter they are very affordable and most come complete to set up and use Warning !!! Fire it up outside to burn the cheap paint off !!!! Ive saw these for around 70 bucks next trip to city im hitting sears and getting one

    I have one of those bio stoves it burns sticks and produces energy to charge usb devices which I personally don't use. I've only used it for boiling water which it worked well for. I'll probably test out the cook top it came with this year. This wouldn't be my first choice for a back pack stove as its a little on the heavy side and I prefer a more low tech stove. This stove I mainly use for ice fishing or having in the truck when heading in the bush.

    A packable wood-stove?!

    Just the other day, I was helping a friend with paving his driveway. I put my steamroller up on the roof and drove on over there. Good thing I tied that monster down with some bailing twine, 'cause there were some serious curves in the road.

    I've seen a few if these little stoves in ads. As we all know, some items sold are not worth the cardboard they are shipped in when it comes to function or poor construction that leads to a short life. I'm particularly interested in hearing about a stove that anyone has & has used. Report any pro's and con's, even minor details.

    We get all sorts of freebies of stuff like this at work to try out. The problem with lightweight materials is that they are light use. I've tried four different stoves and none of those was worth the bulk. The metals used are too thin and crimps or bends/breaks. If you have a cabin, I would strongly suggest you take that 4x4 and get a proper stove there, if you are camping, build a fireplace with rocks and what have you.
