In Connecticut, we don't have the same concerns for arid conditions as you folks out west. Certainly we have periods of high forest fire danger when responsible campers would not use open fires or wood stoves for that matter. In that case, the littlbug stove is designed to house a small alcohol stove within, thereby minimizing fire danger. For the greater good, it's good that the conditions in the West were pointed out here so that those touring there understand the risk of open fires.
I have used this stove on top of a 1 gallon paint can lid supported by on small sticks thereby eliminating any scarring of the ground. We also have abundant dead wood that a few wood burning stoves would never make a dent in. I most likely will use this stove on winter camping trips anyway. I understand your point jamawani.
