Camping Bob does his best to explain how a liquid fuel camping stove works – but could this be a demonstration FAIL instead?

While he does have his facts and procedure straight … there seems to be a big gap between explanation and implementation.

Editor’s note: Clarification comments follow below video.


A note from Gus: This video was staged for comedic effect. The gas fire was a controlled burn, and there were no real cuts and scraps from the camp stove grill.
On the other hand, if you are interested in a liquid fuel camp stove – here are some good deals from Amazon.

Camp Tip: Organize with collapsible camp coolers.

Collapsible camp coolers are a great way to organize your camp food. All your camp coolers don’t have to be those heavy rigid ones! Of course you will need at least one of those for your ice and drinks, and long-term cold storage, but if you use the smart camping tip about freezing most of the food for your camp meals, these collapsible coolers are great.

Their soft-side design make them easier to cram into that last available spot between the other camping gear, and best of all they collapse when empty, (much easier to pack out of camp). Collapsible Camp Coolers


Another Space Saver – Collapsible Water Container

Another space saver that does a necessary camp chore – a collapsible camp water jug. Gallon jugs of water can get expensive and take up a lot of space. A collapsible water jug will keep a ready supply of water and collapse down to a minimal size for packing. Camp Water Carrier
