Heater
« on: February 22, 2015, 12:49:31 PM »
After spending 4 hours stranded in cold weather over the weekend, I appreciated having a bit of extra preparation in the car to keep me warm. Nice reminder that prepping for survival can be useful even on the way home from work (especially at -27C!).



As a result, I thought I'd look into some more compact heater ideas and found this neat little design for an emergency alcohol heater (and easily manipulated into a stove), that uses a paint can. Very portable and a nice tight seal.
No doubt, leaving the alcohol in the original bottle, stuffed in the can, would keep it safest and longest.

It is similar idea to the King of Random's Cardboard firestarters.


I was also fond of his "Tuna Torch", as a nice, quick simple solution for light and/or heat in small spaces.

Good post, thanks. Simple plan, cheap and easy to make and very effective.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
