Before posting my reply earlier today I decided to remove alt.coffee
from the group list. Then I realized that you probably wouldn't see my
message. So I am re-posting it.
Forget 12v. I prefer the old fashioned stoves, such as
Optimus, Primus etc, but the Coleman twin fuel (Petrol) has
to win for efficiency and ability to find fuel easily,
I don't like propane/butane appliances (old fashioned).
We went on a picnic this weekend and I took an old Brexton
picnic hamper with china cups, saucers, plates etc, and old
Optimus stove and we had strawberries and clotted cream,
sarnies, black pudding and a pot of tea - we're English.
In the past I've taken the hamper and my old silver flambe
lamp (Methylated spirits) and a Gingham check tablecloth.
Wow, interesting. I had to google a couple of terms though to make sure
I understand what you are referring to ;)
Now that you mentioned tea... In addition to coffee, we also love loose
teas. In addition to the grocery store varieties, we occasionally
order some real good (albeit somewhat expensive) stuff on the web. I
just don't really like the idea of adding milk to my tea :-)
I like the idea of dual fuel. However, based on the current oil market
situation, Coleman should consider adding vegetable oil as another fuel
option for their stoves ;)
Another thing is I occasionally fly somewhere and then go camping. In
that case, the propane stove is out of the question.
As for the Kelty Kettle you mentioned in another post, I don't think
they have a dealer in the U.S. Ebay is probably the only option.
