I Live on the coast and camp on the beach quite often. Have you ever tried to make a Dakota fire hole in sandy soil? I’ll tell you now, it don’t work! With the StealthFyre stove, I can make a hard to see fire to keep me warm and to cook with. I also do a lot of camping in the forest and during fire season the StealthFyre stove has kept me from getting fined for having a campfire, the ranger took one look at it and said she wishes everybody out in dispersed camping would use one (I spent somewhere around an hour showing her how it worked with some of the extra panels I wasn’t using) overall it has been a great addition to my camping kit and I am looking forward to using it more.
