Wilderness Survival Home

I've been introduced to one of the best Wilderness Survival sites. Check it out at:


The forums are down to earth, but there are a few rules you have to follow at first, like a limit on direct clickable links. No doubt this is to prevent spammers from clogging up real information with junk.

I just posted a messaged on Fuels for The Soda Can stove. This new guy just made one, and several people made comments on it. Having a lot of experience with one, I suggested they check out my page here, where I even have a video demo-ing how to make your own fuel tablets, complete with burn time test.


These little stoves are handy for several reasons, and are especially efficent if you use a 2 pint cooking pot and windscreen. Most trail meals or pots of hot water require just one ounce of fuel. Of course, you need a pot support for this stove. Use hardware cloth, tent stakes, or a modified tin can.

Best of all, the stove is free. Make it yourself with plans gleaned off the Internet...

May all your trails be lighter.
