Only recent one I have.

The view from the vestibule right around dawn over the lake at Wind Creek State Park in Alabama. Not a bad view but an overpriced RV campground and a less than friendly staff.

Can you really call it camping when you take along a beer fridge,



a white leather couch and a thermal siphoning water heater,



a water heater for showers,



Which we also use to heat a hot tub,



Oh, and we eat pretty well too!



Cheers to you all.
It does look like a great time but not sure about the big bottle of hand cream right in the middle of camp?

Good one.

Actually its soap.
You can see the whole unit here.
There is a tap on the side opposite the fire for washing hands and dishes.
All the legs and tubing come off and get stored inside it for travel.
It's all stainless and holds about 8 gallons.
It is the best piece of camping gear I ever built and it even keeps the bacon warm until the eggs are ready.



Cheers.

No fridges or leather couches, just sleeping mats and sleeping bags.

On a recent trip, sleeping in the open under the African sky not much can compare!

This was in Stewart a few years ago.
Not as elaborate a setup.



But the view from camp made up for it !

Not at the moment but I'm sure I can put one together.
I can also take detailed pictures when I get home in 10 days.
I originally used 1/2 inch stainless tubing for the coils and put 3 turns in the fire, but it was too noisy.
The water in the coils flashed into steam and then collapsed again as soon as the steam hit the water in the pot.
I switched to larger tubing and just one vertical pass through the fire for better circulation.
The water turns over so fast it never flashes off.
Now it just gurgles away once all the water is boiling, and is silent before that.

The pot and lid are made from sheetmetal, the legs from pipe, bolts and washers.
The heater coil and handles are from tubing.
You also need a few bulkhead fittings, some tube unions and nuts if you want it collapsible for transport.
All the parts are 316 stainless.
I throw all the pieces in a plastic bag to keep the inside of the pot clean.
Its too big to pack on a bike, but if you are truck camping there is no problem.

The best thing is that it doesn't dominate the firepit like a pot sitting above the fire will.
The water is still hot in the morning for washing, teeth etc.
Food wrapped in foil stays hot when placed on top of the lid.

Cheers.
