    :lol: We call them hippie chokers.
    You get those stoves going just smoking hot and roaring and they will start huffing a puffing like a train. You need to put a good layer of gravel in the bottom of them so you don't burn the metal out of the bottom of the stove, that is a rookie mistake.

    I really use what ever I can find where I am setting up camp. I dump it it out after each use, I don't haul it home with me there are enough places to get a few shovel loads of gravel in this country. These stoves don't last that long but they will heat up a tent, and hold a fire all night if you fill it up and close all the vents and let it burn.

    They are hands down the best bang for your buck for a tent stove. I don't run one anymore, use a heavier duty one that will last more than a couple years. But can't really say anything bad about those old air rights.

    I wish I'd known - they were visible as far south as Washington but you need to get out of the city to see them.

    Went to see venom 2, noticed it in the sky on the drive back. Clear as day at times. Was putting on a show!
