I carry a stainless steel cup that originally cost me $4.00 some years ago.

This cup goes on every hiking trip no matter the location, distance or time duration and has provided many a cup of hot tea while sitting around the campfire. The cup sits perfectly on a MSR PocketRocket or Whisperlite stove and is equally comfortable sitting in or beside a wood fueled campfire.

I bit the bullet and went for the $6 for $20. the cup/nalgene thing is definitely useful but I agree that it makes a cool PSK.

Even making 2 or 3 for me, and if I make one as a gift for someone, I probably don't need 6. If anyone in the Houston area needs one, PM me.

I really didn't like buying more than I needed. I did find a cool coupon for SG on some website and got $10 off, which took the sting out of it...

Wow, I love well worn camp cookware. Lots of history in that cup.

Miner,

I agree with you 100%, I cannot find a container of that size and orientation. Two days ago I found a British Tea container that is about the correct size but still has a welded seam and folded type bottom. It has the image of a red London Double Decker bus pressed into the exterior. Lots of round containers available but they are difficult to pack and do not store as well. What is needed is a BCB Mess Tin with the top being on one of the sides.

I have boxes full of potential PSK containers. I auctioned off a PSK 2 weeks ago (money went to youth group) and used a Twinnings Tea can as the container. Now I am having trouble replacing it as the local containers are all cardboard.

I bought 10 of these cups to go in Ice Rescue/Survival kits that I am building. I figured I will bend the handle down to the side and under the cup, then drill a small hole in the lip of the cup across from the handle for a bail wire to be attached to.

Yes there is a lot of history and memories in the cup. From the ocean shores to the dry grasslands to the high mountain alpine and to the north country, this cup has been there along with lots of good company and conversations around the campfire over the years.

Thanks SwampDonkey,

I was starting to get a complex thinking I had an odd idea. I'll keep looking and if I ever find it, I'll grab 2 and then try to figure out how to get one to you:-)

Has anyone tried a 500 ml olive oil can? It fits inside a M14 mag pouch.
