Solo Stove ReviewI've been drying to get outside and cook on my new Solo Stove. Today was the day. One bad thing about campfire cooking is the amount of wood you have to gather to make a meal. If I'm just stopping to eat, I don't want to have cut and haul a ton of wood, just to get a warm meal. This is what makes the Solo Stove perfect. I grabbed a handful of dry sticks, broke them into 3-4 inch pieces and prepared to get cooking. It wasn't long before I had a little fire going, but would it be enough to boil water? There was only one way to find out, how the Solo Stove would cook, and it was too late to back down now. I had already committed to eating outside today, I had already bragged to my wife. No turning back now! I pulled up my Big Boy Pants and put 16 oz of water in my Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set Pot and set it on the blazing Solo Stove. I was amazed, I had gathered almost no wood, yet I had a nice little blaze going in a small controlled area. The pot was heating up nicely and the water was starting to bubble, and this had only taken about 5 minutes. Things were looking good so far.
I had achieved boiling water. All I had to do now was get 8 oz of this water safely into my Mountain House food pouch and dinner was guaranteed!
