too ruff to lite the stove

so I ate beef stew rite out of the can.sorta like "skippy chunks".I still do it to this day.reminds me of being out there...you woud be suprized to know that the insides of cans are sterile.Id say all told I had nearly 1500 differnet types of canned good on board on both of my solo trips.the first time soloing back from hawaii I used alcohol to preheat the kerosene sea swing.but that first five days north was a dog manned farther marking bun of a sitch(and you can say that on the radio).it was so ruff I couldnt preheat the stove.On the second trip back I used a propane torch to preheat,now I just use propane as cooking fuel.Much cleaner.no schmut all over the coach roof.And rather than carry big gaudy tanks, I just use the small wallmart standard civilian issue 2 for 2.49 cylinders.about 20 will do the trick.easlily monitored and replenished when used.you may see the older ones covered with barnicles.I have a theory that through enuff time the sea life growth will eventually take them to the bottom.
