Do any motorcycle camping?

Tired of lugging that Coleman stove and propane can with you? Check this out: http://www.kruegerservices.com/fritz/osp/

Look at the PASS Stove................

stove

The LRDG (later the SAS) used this method, and my mob used it also. Line of army vehicles come to a stop, troops bail out. One has a 20 litre (4 gal) drum with the lid removed and holes in the side. He shovels in some sand from the roadside, tips some whoof wood (petrol) on the sand, throws in a match and instant stove. This lasted long enough to cook for all the guys in the truck. We had more sophisticated methods, and the Catering Corps, but when the essence was speed on a long trip, this was okay.

Similar to the "Desert Candles" we've used for years. Cut top inch to inch and a half off a soda can, dump in sand to fill to 2" depth, pour in a cup or so of gasoline and light. Burns for a long time.... lights a picnic table fairly well.

How warm or hot does the bottom of the soda can get? I imagine you need some sort of tongs or asbestos gloves to move it after it's lit off...
