What's Mr. Froggy been up to?

Funny you should ask. He's been making these amazing stoves. They weigh less than an ounce and will burn for almost 8 minutes on just a tiny bit of fuel (used for demonstration...they'll actually burn for a long time with more fuel) He's boiled water in his camp teakettle on one of these stoves. They're awesome for hiking because they weigh nothing! Anyway, I just wanted to brag a bit and show you what he was up to.

A pic of it burning. Looks just like a gas burner on a stove. He's been having a great time hanging out in his basement workshop making these. There are can carcasses (carci?) everywhere.

That's really neat! I think I've seen directions for something similar in a wilderness survival book my husband owns.

This is really clever - I used to love hiking and camping but gave up when I had the girls. These stoves would've been really useful though!
