What are isopropyl alcohol canisters?
I've never heard of isopropyl alcohol being used in camping, except to put on bug bites.
My Bad. One rough week OK3 weeks if you include Matthew.. My brain is fried. I meant Isobutane-propane.
Also I know that there are alcohol stoves that are authorized if they are not hand made.One of our ASMs who is an ultralite backpacker was not happy he could not use any of his "cat food can" stoves he made, so he bought a Trangia alcohol stove. Funny thing is, he showed th DIY cans and they reminded me of the ones in tHE CUB SCOUT LEADER HOW TO BOOK.
That's what the G2SS states now, but what was it 10 or 15 years ago? I know that my Troop growing up switched from white gas to propane, and I swear it was required, not optional, because it was a significant investment to replace equipment - money our Troop didn't really have at the time, so I doubt this was done on a whim. Anyone have a hard copy G2SS from ten or fifteen years ago to see whether this was fact or myth?
To the best of my knowledge there has never been a "ban" on white gas / Coleman fuel, back at least 10 years, circa 2006.
Some councils have banned white gas on their properties. My council has white gas as a prohibited item. Thankfully, the one time I took my white gas stove to a council event, it was on private property. Seriously, I didn't know about the council ban until I was reading the sumemr camp leaders' Guide.
