Stoves and Fuel
You wake up early in the cold morning and realize your fire is completely out. You know you have things to do today but all you really want right now is your morning cup of coffee. You could rekindle your fire, but it would be a waste of wood since you are leaving camp right away. Then you thank yourself for having a camp stove and a fuel source that will boil your water without any trouble at all. By the time you fully wake up, your water is boiling hot.
A good camp stove is an excellent addition to your emergency kit or even just your regular camping gear. A pocket stove is a very compact piece of cooking gear that can heat your food or just purify the water you pulled from the stream. These do not take up much room in your pack and the convenience of having a ready made stovetop is invaluable.
