Planning on heading there myself soon.

Scout, can you pm me your mailing address, it didn't come through on the payment.

Two questions...

Will you send to Australia?

Second question dependent on the first :p

What fuels are people using over here?

Cheers

Yes we are worldwide, baby. To Australia add $2 per stove for the added shipping costs. For fuel, just sniff around different auto parts places for anything that is Methyl Alcohol, that's what HEET is. Isopropyl and regular denatured will work, however will burn sooty. Methyl burns so clean you can never tell that your stove has been used.

Just wanted to say what a pleasure it was doing business with you. A great product, great price and quick shipping. Beers on me should you ever make it back over for Logger Days

Not aware of any places to (legally) buy methyl alcohol in Norway, I think its considered a health hazard. But denat alcohol (our "red spirit") is available anywhere

adding water to it apparently helps stoves like the Origo etc to burn cleaner.

Looks like I need to order a couple, would be nice companions to my Optimus Nova multifuel stove.

I would just like to say that I have never had any problem with soot using denatured alcohol.

Yup, that's the conclusion I've come to as well, and I'm happy with denat alcohol for now. I want to try the more expensive "Fin fyr" bottle they sell in hiking shops as well though, just to see the difference.

My Stever Stove heating a can of spaghetti and meatballs at a rest stop along Sognefjorden this weekend. Stever Stoves rule!

Got my stoves today, they look great and are less filling!

We'll see how long it is before I buy a few more, I'm a bit of a hoarder sometimes.
