    The perfect yuppy hunters accessory

    For all those blokes that love to hunt, but cannot pry themselves away from their Iphones, Ipads, PDA's, etc for extended trips. This is the ultimate outdoor accessory:

    BioLite CampStove - BioLite Stove

    Quite a neat idea really, wonder how well it actually works.

    Sort of stone age meets space age in a gizmo. I am not convinced that it would be all that practical for the walk in hunters among us.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I wonder how may forest fires will be started because some geek thought it was more important to tweet than abide to the total fire ban !

    It is a little excessive isn't it. I go into the bush hunting to get away from all that shit. Still quite an innovative idea, and does suit the weekend hikers etc who have to have the latest gizmos.

    I will stick with my MSR whisperlite I think.

    With the amount of time it would take to effectively charge a battery, compared to the amount of fuel needed to actually get a long enough charge, I can't see it being much use.
