Review: Bushcraft-Essentials Bushbox Outdoor Pocket Stove

Yet another stove I bought.

I have used all sorts of stoves, from Primus and Optimus Multi Fuel when I started a 5 year worldwide bicycle trip to an Optimus Svea 123. I tried a gas stove, a self-made hobo stove, an alcohol stove and plain wood fires.

Therma-A-Rest Self-Inflating Air Mattress

Sleep is one of the most important things to enjoy life. Isn’t that equally so for a cycling life?

Review Optimus Svea 123

The Svea was designed in 1920 and the technology is simple. A design that is not the best option to choose for a stove on an extended cycle trip. The Svea is currently used in Sweden and Japan for stationary use or as a working antique stove with a nice look. An Optimus Nova would have been a better choice, since that is a modern liquid fuel stove for mobile use.

Review Hilleberg Soulo

The Hilleberg Soulo is a great one person’s tent. It withstand fierce winds, it ads about 4 degrees to the outside temperature and it has enough space not to feel imprisoned.

Review Optimus Nova

First and foremost, after cycling more than 4 years, only a few brands are so good that I chose them again, would I have to. Therm-A-Rest, Cumulus and Optimus.

The very last moment before I would set off to South America, including rainy Patagonia, I decided I needed a new rain jacket.
