    Great report and great pictures, I'm glad you and your buddy were able to get out for a night in the wilds.

    +1 on keeping the alcohol in a inside coat pocket. Outside coat pockets won't keep it nearly as warm. And I'll warm my empty stove (or priming pan if I'm using one) with my lighter before I add the fuel to it. This seems to help things take off easier.

    Good advice on keeping the fuel warm. Makes sense but I just thought something that was flammable would light at anytime. Thanks for all the comments.

    I thought the same thing until last winter when I put a lighter right above some alcohol and nothing happened. Needs to be warm enough for some vapour to ignite I think.
