With a little ingenuity you might convert this into something that can get you a hot shower while camping.

That is cool! Thanks Pete. Maybe once the price comes down I'll look into it. Until then I guess I'll have to stop and heat.

I knew people would think it's nifty.. Me??? Pffft... There's something ZENish about sitting down... pulling out a stove... watching/waiting for water to boil...

Nice concept, great alternative to carrying a stove just to boil water.

If it was priced about $100, I'd seriously consider it.
