Rainy Day Projects

Yesterday was delayed by the weather knocking out my internet. Which gave me the idea of doing a show on  rainy day projects. The things you can do inside to further your preparedness. I have several projects to keep you busy on when the outside is disgusting.

I talk about a few projects to be able to cook on. My favorite rainy day project is by far making alcohol stoves. You know the ones made from coke cans. Not soda or pop. This is the south. they are all cokes.

Looking for more rainy day projects? Have you updated your Bug out documents recently? I didn’t think so. They are one of the most important and most neglected preps.

Hobo Can Pot Holder Mini Post

My buddy Todd over at Survival Sherpa reprinted my hobo can stove project way back in December 2012. He had a comment on it recently wanting to see how the pot holder worked. It seems that in my pictures the flames are hiding them. He shot me an email to see if I could shoot a picture of it. Well I no longer have that stove but told him I would build on a new one to take pictures of. Figured while I was at it I would post it here in case any of you have the same question.

 

Making a pot holder on these hobo stoves is super easy. I use steel tent pegs that I carry anyway for tarps. First line up where they will go on the can. I like them to angle in towards each other. Make sure that at the widest part your pot can’t fall through. I find that pots are more stable with the pegs at an angle than parallel.

Use a marker to mark where you will drill the holes for the pegs.

I like to use a hole punch to keep the drill bit from walking on me.

Next drill your holes to slightly bigger than the pegs and your done.

Hope this helps clarify how it works. Thanks and get busy building. DIY 2 Survive!

Coffee Can Hobo Stove

Stoves and cooking are two things I love. Maybe I’m just a pyromaniac foodie at heart. After several alcohol stoves, esbit stoves and my Jetboil with modifications, I decided it was time to make a wood burning hobo stove. I had a empty coffee can saved up just for this project and decided it was finally time. Enough jiba jabba lets get to building!
