Small DIY camp stove!

Today I built a small DIY camping stove that uses alcohol.

I used this video to build it.  So the credit goes to him.
There are a lot of videos on building "penny" stoves and you can use almost anything to build one.

I used a cheap dollar store aluminum nalgine bottle.

I was able to boil water in 3.5 minutes and only 1 tablespoon burns for 3 minutes.
Remember, If you build one only use denatured alcohol so that it burns clean and doesn't leave a residue.

We almost have everything we need for our first camping trip!  Coming soon.....
