Foul Weather Kettle: Catch A Break

camping-gear-kettle-foul

The biggest fear of any camper is foul weather. There’s not much you can do about it, and even worse, there’s not much you can do while it lasts. Except maybe one thing, fix yourself a hot drink with the Foul Weather Kettle. Invented decades ago in Ireland, this kettle allows the camper to bring to a boil up to 1-1/2 qts of water, using just some shavings or a handful of twigs.

It operates in windy rainy conditions as on a sunny day, functioning as a hollow-center chimney surrounded by a double-wall boiler. If the weather is no good, any camper should make sure the equipment he has allows him to catch a break and enjoy a nice cup of hot drink. Continue reading
