I’m wondering if anyone here knows any diy stoves that can burn both solid and liquid fuels.

I’ve come up with this idea:

Wich itself is a modification from this DIY beercan stove video that has been mentioned all around:

According to the ever reliable youtube comments if you burn fuel with lower alchohol percentages you need to add more holes along the top.
Since the alchohol thats mostly available around here has percentages around 85% I would’ve needed to add those regardless.

I’m currently not in a position to go uit and build one of these, so I’m wondering what y’all think about its plausibility and or know of any alternative designs that could burn both solid and liquid fuels.

The reason I’d rather not make a campfire is that most places I’ll be traveling trough have very strict laws against campfires, so if i get caught it could net me a hefty fine inestead of a warning.

Penny can stoves (beer can stoves) are really fun little light weight stoves but are all but useless for anything more then boiling a cup of water for tea, if that's what yer looking for then yea it would work just fine. My gas fuel cook set weighs less then a pound and takes up about half a football's worth of space and has never let me down. I also have a wood burning pocket sized stove that's maybe 4x4 inches. Personally I dont like liquid stoves they never heat properly from my experience.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
