My method for making an alcohol stove from an aluminum bottle
Just thought I'd post a video I made last spring while I was making a stove for my Dad. Someone suggested it belonged in this thread.

Wow that's an excellent idea! If you sewed a sheet of transparent plastic of the same size to three edges and propped the remaining edge of it open, you'd have one for the bush. A refelctive mylar emergency blanket could be used in the same way.

I'm very new to this, but I discovered a way to recycle shower curtains that were no longer "pretty" according to my significant other.
I scrub them down with bleach cleaner and then let them sun dry for a few days... then they make perfect tarps, and or, at the very least, ground tarps to keep the tent from getting moist through the night.
I shower curtains are all 7x7 feet, but have had a few that were 6x8. Regardless, it's a cheap alternative, and the ones you buy at Target are very inexpensive and lightweight.

We always take these car shades with us outdoors. They weigh and cost next to nothing. They work great as sitting or sleeping pads, and they reflect heat from fires. Can be used as a solar oven to cook or boil water if you add a turkey oven bag and a black cook pot. Can keep rain or sun off of you also.

tent stove from table top bbq and clothes dryer flex vent
This contraption served its puropse during a one week camp but I couldn't get it to stop leaking smoke (reason the tent door is wide open) so I have decommissioned the lovely thing.

I don't know how wide spread they are, but I got a 9 X 11 tarp, a 5 X 8 tarp, and 100 feet of nylon rope at Harbor Freight tools for twenty bucks. I spent almost two hundred I think for a Mountain Smith tent, but after seeing some of the shelters that folks on here half set up, I am afraid that I am going to regret that investment with time and practice.
