    Might not be out in the wild wild world but a cuppa in the garden is nice. Foldable kettle on £10 stove with hexi.

    Bit random this one but I cut a few oak purlins down a while ago.
    Had em lying around the place for ages then drilled a hole down the centre from the top to meet up with a hole I drilled from a few inches up from the bottom in from one side.

    Kind of a wooden rocket stove.
    It hardly throws any heat out (I can pick it it while its burning and move it to another spot) but its pretty good with the Kelly Kettle and serves as a talking point.

    One thing to note, the one inch drill bit wasn't really enough, would be better to be a two inch hole so I could drop fuel down it till the inside of the oak catches.
    Once its got upto that size its dead easy to put out and re light though.

    Yeah used the Kelly Kettle (its the base camp version which might goive an idea of scale) several times with the supplied metal bowl thing, like it that way as its way more portable than carrying great lumps of oak about but my van was parked 20 foot away this time and I wanted to play silly beggers with the oak.
    I'd been using the Kelly Kettle normally but as I had the oak purlin end burning anyway I figured why not just put the Kelly Kettle on top.

    The oak things burn for hours though, Plus it doesn't leave a fire scar till the bottom burns out so its nice and tidy.

    I suppose its about as practical to carry as one of those dutch oven things that everyone on hers seems to have?

    Doing a bit of coppicing/clearing in our little woodland. Once you've got a brash fire going, you just have to put the kettle on :)
