Explain the steps in effective skills instruction. 2 Slide 4 NE-II-177 Learning Objectives Upon completion of this presentation you will be able to: Explain why and when we use effective skills instruction in BSA. Explain the steps in effective skills instruction. A portion of every troop meeting is set aside for skills instruction. Set the stage: Young scouts going on 1 st BP trip and need to know how to use the stoves safely or the troop just bought new stoves and we are learning how to use them safely. 2A Slide 5 Backpacking Stoves Your name Troop Guide 3 Totem Here Slide 6 Backpacking Stoves Your name Troop Guide 3A Totem Here Slide 7 NE-II-177 Learning Objectives Upon completion of this presentation you will be able to: Explain the differences between the basic types of backpacking stoves.

Explain the differences between the different types of backpacking stove fuels. Explain the safety rules for backpacking stove. Safely use a backpacking stove. 4A Slide 9 NE-II-177 Types of Stoves 5 Integral Fuel Container fuel container connected directly to the stove External Fuel Container fuel container is separate and connected by a fuel line Slide 10 NE-II-177 Types of Stoves 5A Integral Fuel Container - This type of stove has the fuel container connected directly to the stove. External Fuel Container - The fuel container is separate from this type of stove and connected by a fuel line. There are many types of backpacking stoves that range from the basic to the exotic. The stove you choose will depend upon your requirements, such as ease of handling, weight, bulk, and type of fuel. Backpacking Spring issue evaluates backpacking stoves Pass around Campmor catalogue with stoves highlighted Slide 11 Types of Fuels Liquid white gas, refined kerosene and alcohol Compressed Gas propane, isobutane and propane/butane mix 6 Slide 12 NE-II-177 Types of Fuels There are two types of fuels available for backpacking stoves. Liquid white gas, refined kerosene, and alcohol. Liquid fuels require being transferred into an external or internal fuel cylinder depending upon the stove. Compressed Gas propane, isobutane and propane/butane mix come in one time use cylinders. 6A Slide 13 NE-II-177 Stove Safety BSA Stove Safety Resources Boy Scout Handbook Scoutmaster Handbook Guide to Safe Scouting MCBSA Adult Basic Backpacking Course Any other backpacking courses 7 Slide 14 NE-II-177 Stove Safety BSA Stove Safety Resources Boy Scout Handbook, pg 254 Scoutmaster Handbook Guide to Safe Scouting MCBSA Adult Basic Backpacking Course Any other backpacking courses Ask what are some dos and donts of stove / gas safety Then follow up with the schooled answers. 7A Slide 15 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Liquid fuels and compressed gas can be dangerous, use extreme caution when using them. Always check the stove manual to ensure you are using the correct type of fuel. Never pour fuel into or near a hot stove. Allow sufficient time for fuel vapors to disperse before attempting to light a stove after pouring fuel. Always use with adult supervision. 8 Slide 16 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Liquid fuels and compressed gas can be dangerous, use extreme caution when using them.

Allow sufficient time for fuel vapors to disperse before attempting to light a stove after pouring fuel. Always use with adult supervision. 8A Slide 17 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Use the heat shield between the stove and the fuel cylinder. Hand tighten pumps and cylinders. When removing a fuel bottle, pressure must be released slowly to avoid spraying or spilling fuel. Be careful not to cross-thread gas fittings when connecting them to a stove or fuel line. Never store any fuel, either compressed gas or liquid, inside a tent or sleeping area. 9 Slide 18 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Use the heat shield between the stove and the fuel cylinder.

Be careful not to cross-thread gas fittings when connecting them to a stove or fuel line. Never store any fuel, either compressed gas or liquid, inside a tent or sleeping area. 9A Slide 19 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Always operate stoves on a flat stable surface that is free from burnable material. If the stove is designed to burn multiple types of fuel, pick one and stick with it. DONT MIX! Fuel bottles should be treated the same way. Always follow manufacturers instructions. The most important safety feature of any stove is a trained operator. 10 Slide 20 NE-II-177 Stove Safety Continued Always operate stoves on a flat stable surface that is free from burnable material.

To operate this stove we need the following materials: One MSR DragonFly stove One MSR Fuel Bottle (filled with liquid fuel) Matches or lighter Repair kit 11 Slide 22 NE-II-177 Stove Preparation (Ask for a volunteer. Explain: I am going to demonstrate how to instruct someone on how to safely operate a backpacking stove). For todays demonstration, we will use a MSR DragonFly stove. To operate this stove we need the following materials: One MSR DragonFly Stove One MSR Fuel Bottle (filled with liquid fuel) Matches or lighter Repair kit 11A Slide 23 NE-II-177 Assembling the Stove 12 1.Remove stove from carrying case. 2.Open the legs, snap the legs into place and place the stove on a level durable surface. 3.Unscrew the fuel bottle cap and fill the bottle to the fill line. Be sure to keep the bottle away from your face and others. (demonstrate) 4.Screw the pump snugly into the fuel bottle. 5.Make sure the valve is closed 6.Pump the plunger 15-20 strokes. If bottle is half full pump 15-30 strokes or until firm resistance is felt when pushing the plunger down. (The less fuel, the more pumps) Slide 24 NE-II-177 Assembling the Stove 12A 1.Remove stove from carrying case. 2.Open the legs, snap into position and place the stove of a stable, durable surgace. 3.Unscrew the fuel bottle cap and fill the bottle to the fill line. Be sure to keep the bottle away from your face and others. (demonstrate) 4.Screw the pump snugly into the fuel bottle. 5.Make sure the valve is closed 6.Pump the plunger 15-20 strokes. If bottle is half full pump 15-30 strokes or until firm resistance is felt when pushing the plunger down. (The less fuel, the more pumps) Slide 25 NE-II-177 Assembling the Stove 13 7.Lubricate the end of the fuel line lightly with MSR Pump Cup Oil (saliva or other mineral-base lubricant), then insert it into the fuel tank bushing on the pump. 8.Snap the catch arm securely into the slot on the pump body. 9.Put the heat reflector in place. 10.Bend fuel line to allow stove to sit squarely on the ground. Slide 26 NE-II-177 Assembling the Stove 13A 7.Lubricate the end of the fuel line lightly with MSR Pump Cup Oil (saliva or other mineral-base lubricant), then insert it into the fuel tank bushing on the pump. 8.Snap the catch arm securely into the slot on the pump body. 9.Put the heat reflector in place. 10.Bend fuel line to allow stove to sit squarely on the ground. Slide 27 NE-II-177 Operating the Stove 14 Before lighting the stove check that: Stove assembly has no fuel leaks. Area is clear of flammable materials Catch arm is locked and stove is properly assembled. Slide 28 NE-II-177 Operating the Stove Before lighting the stove check that: Stove assembly has no fuel leaks.

To pre-heat properly, the priming flame must contact the generator tube. Insufficient priming may result in flare-up. 15 Slide 30 NE-II-177 Operating the Stove Priming instructions for white gas: Priming pre-heats the stove to turn the liquid fuel into vapor.
