Have my Mr. Buddy Catalytic Heater 7K/9K for Spring and Fall Boondocking. Tested. It works as described. Morning warm up and lighting... too. Thalweg on a Wyoming Adventure survived using his Mr. Buddy, so that was encouraging evidence. He is known to be a risk adverse pioneer in heating indoors.
For those who do not want to trip over a dog when walking down the hallway of your Airstream in the middle of the night... dig into your pocket for a couple loose Dollar Bills, more if Canadian these days... and get a CANDLE. Scented, or not. Cinnamon scent may be better than Blue Heller, as a side benefit.
This is to be a second new addition to our 'OTG fill the trailer' campaign. Mr. Buddy was my latest, first new addition.
Put the candle onto a small plate to catch melting wax. You do not need a higher lumen light. It is amazing how a candle can literally... light up your life... when camped. A large diameter candle is stable and if you save the wax that remains... no doubt can add a string and make a homemade candle.
Spelunking we used miner's caps with the Acetylene Miners Lamp. These were used in Coal Mines, at first, to reduce methane explosions using... candles. Somehow I do not expect an abundance of methane, as there are only two people and two Blue Heeler dogs. Explosions are not expected. Although, acetylene did not seem to put out any odors... but the bright lumen output would keep everyone awake and you have to refill with Calcium Carbide.
Now that Costco is out of Toilet Paper and Water... it is safe to say that maybe WalMart has the candle part of the market. Anyone tried this out? Costco would sell a SIX PACK weighing pounds if they offered candles that large.
Kerosene lanterns are out. Those are too pre 1960
and the stench... is permanent. So do not bring them up.
Battery powered lantern. Batteries are more expensive than candles. The lanterns are too bright. The batteries die just after you use them on the second trip, anyways.
Did I miss anything? Just tightening things up for the Season. Heat and Light are taken care of. Any additions to the 'short list'?
Don't forget matches. Got to get that onto my list. Gee... one more thing to add.
