Build a DIY camping stove

It's a fact that a decent camping stove can be an absolute godsend, particularly when you're wild camping and the nearest tearoom is many hours walk away.

After all, when you've had a hard day on the hills, there's little better than striking camp and making a lovely cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate to help warm up and relax - it's one of life's little pleasures.

The thing is that a reliable, portable and lightweight camping stove can be quite expensive, and the more reliable, portable and lightweight it is, the more expensive it's likely to be.

In this video Frasier Christian of the Coastal Survival School shows you how to make a portable stove that will cost you nothing. Zero. Nada. Zip. You read that right, with a bit of scavenging this mini burner will cost you absolutely nothing and still provide you with hot water for an end of day cuppa.
