Another short note about Solutions From Science. This one is about what they call the “Crisis Cooker.” I’ve seen this advertised elsewhere as the Volcano Stove–and I want one! For a modest price we can have an emergency cooking stove that can use propane (with the appropriate attachments), charcoal briquettes (which I would have to start stocking up on), or wood (that I would scrounge from my environment). It can accomodate various cooking styles from a dutch oven to a grill, and it packs into a convenient carrying case for travel. Do check it out!
