Choosing the Right Camping Stove

There are several types of camping. Backpacking, car camping, and RV camping. Depending on the type of camping you are doing, determines the type of camping stove you will need. Outdoor camping stoves vary in size, weight, burners, and types of fuel used. Usually camping stoves that take up little room, are easy to set up, and tear down are the best. Also, the type of fuel plays an important part of selecting the right camping stove. A good camping stove should be able to support itself and the cookware placed on them with little to no chance of tipping over. The camping stove you select should be durable, reliable, easy to light, and perform well in all conditions you may encounter while camping.

Liquid-fuel stoves are generally a compact single burner stove that burns white gas, which is a form of pure gasoline that contains no additives. However, some liquid fuel stoves burn kerosene, #1 diesel, unleaded gas, and jet fuel. All these fuels burn hot which makes this stove ideal for the backpacker who camps in harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. Because none of these fuels burn clean, it is imperative that you keep the burner clean for the stove to perform as intended. Liquid fuel stoves come equipped with a separate tank for the fuel, a primer pump to create pressure in the tank, a valve to control the flow of fuel going to the stove where the gas is mixed with air so it can burn. To improve their efficiency most liquid-fuel stoves come equipped with a wind screen and to improve their stability they are equipped with wide supporting legs.

Canister stoves are some of the lightest and easiest stoves to use. Theres no pumping or priming, just turn the knob, light it and you have maximum heat. The heat will adjust from low to high with ease. Canister stoves burn clean on butane, propane, or a mixture of both resulting in very little maintenance. Butane burns hot, yet it does not perform well in temperatures below freezing, whereas propane works good down to zero degrees. Canister stoves by far are the best stoves for the backpacker that does not camp in extreme cold temperatures or high altitudes.

Propane stoves are available with single burner, duel burner, or one burner with grill. Propane stoves are best suited for the car camper and RV camper where size and weight does not matter. Most propane stoves come equipped with a wind screen, which will be helpful on windy days. Also, some of these stoves can connect to a propane canister or propane tank. Best of all, propane fuel is easy to find and use.

In Defense Of Glamping

These days, there is a new term being bandied about known as glamping which is an amalgam of glamor and camping. The idea behind this term is camping with finer luxuries such as pop up tent trailers, TVs, DVD player, and other luxuries of home. Many campers and backpackers use this term derisively to put this style of camping and campers down and soft and not being true campers. But we are all here to enjoy nature and the great outdoors; it is just that some of us have different ideas of how it should be enjoyed. My point is that as long as everyone is enjoying himself or herself, what does it matter how they camp. Read on to hear my defense of camping in all of its forms.

No matter how you camp and the gear you bring, there will likely always be someone who does it will a bit less gear, or a bit more rugged than you do. This does not mean that they enjoy their camping experience any more or you any less. This just means that you have different levels of comfort when it comes to enjoying the camping experience. If your idea of camping is hiking fifty miles with all of you gear on your back and sleeping on a half inch thick pad under the stars, good for you. If you choose to camp in a forty foot RV with a TV, DVD player, and air conditioning, good for you too. It does not matter how you go about it, it just matters that you are enjoying yourself in the great outdoors.

Backpackers can spend their time looking down at tent campers, and tent campers can look down on tent trailer campers, and tent trailer campers can look down on camper trailer campers, and camper trailer campers can look down on RV campers. But what does it matter how someone else chooses to camp? Does this affect how much you enjoy the way that you camp? It most likely does not. So why should you worry about it, just enjoy yourself.

Another point about glamping is that it is the only way that some people can enjoy camping at all. Elderly people, people with disabilities, and those with young children will have a hard or impossible time pitching a tent and sleeping on the ground. SO the only way for these people to even go camping at all is with a real bed and maybe some air conditioning. If it comes down to not camping at all or glamping, you can see why some people would choose glamping over sitting in the city all summer.

So do not be quick to judge others or put up with others who do. Just try to enjoy your method of camping and be glad that others have found a way that they like to enjoy it as well. We are all here to have fun, relax, and get away from our troubles and responsibilities in our daily lives, and the last thing we need is to judge and look down on each other. So play nice and be sure to look for RV sales and RV Rental choices.
