    Don't buy a mouse Brian, it will only get out of its box and chew the wiring on the van, leave the mouse alone.

    That's odd. I've known of people who have had those little tin butane stoves for years and swear by them. Maybe the seal cracked??

    Anyway, still heaps better than toting a gas bottle around in the vehicle with you and probably illegal too.

    Aime i know people who swear by them, weve only used this about ten times, i was still on the first cartridge, when it caught fire i quicly turned it of chucked the can and tried another, swoosh it caught fire also, so it all went in the bin.Bacon and eggs was cooked inside the van. I will not buy another, i sell dozens of them a day a work. But i had heard a lady say that one they had exploded so no mkore for me. Still carry gas bottle inside thou.

    yes mate it was outside, we planned for 2 night here, only an hour from home but just needed to get away for couple of days and just chill and do nothing. Even painted me toe nails for something to do. Now what colour would i use being a magpie supporter.

    I had a couple of those butane stoves and yes one of them caught fire on me, got a hell-of-a fright, they both found the bin real quick, I was thinking of getting a Origo twin burner spirit stove (runs on metho) does anyone know anything about them ? at least you don't have to carry gas bottles and if you get thirsty you can always drink the fuel !!!!!!!! :lol:

    Thanks for the pics. Love your little dog :)

    That's an interesting half size pop-top Brian. Has the center roof strengthening section been cut to fit it??

    She dosent like to leave the back yard Aime, but from now on when we go camping she is comeing too. She will be crossing the nullabour in about 6 weeks for the second time, she dont know it yet. She didnt like the last time. I have no idea on the pop top. All i know it does the job for cooking etc.

    I've only even seen one other single pop-top like that and thought it would be great if you didn't have to cut the center bow out. It would be such a relief to be able to actually stand up to pull my strides on in the morning.

    Alice and I have used a cartridge cooker for the last couple of years and had no problems, but we are likely to switch back to using the gas bottle and three burner stove in future as the canisters don't last long enough and carrying a dozen spares takes up as much space as a cylinder.
