Using Caldera Ti-Tri stove as wood burning camp stove is just one of
the options to use this stove. You can run the Ti-Tri using other fuel
types too. Here I wrote some insights regarding this option.
on all the options the Ti-Tri got...
The basic design is a cone that serves both as the windscreen and as the pot holder. This makes a very efficient system since the pot absorbs most of the heat, and no heat is wasted. The Ti-Tri is made of Titanium (hence the Ti), and therefore, it can withstand fire based on wood. This enables you to run it on few fuel types (wood, alcohol, Esbit) and not just on alcohol like the simple caldera cone.
There are two advantages for running on the titanium plate floor: First, you leave no trace. A practice that is always nice to follow. Second, you can easily lift the cone a bit and keep an air crack between the cone and the floor in case you want more air to flow in.
After the fire is up and running for a few minutes, the holes on the bottom of the cone might not be sufficient. They are partially clogged due to the half-burned wood at the bottom. If it happens, I simply lift the cone a bit and place it on two or three small twigs spread evenly around the base. It makes a crack between the cone and the floor (or soil) which allows more air to rush in. This increased air supply enables the fire to run better. Naturally, after a few minutes the twigs that held the cone in the air get burned, and the air crack is closed but by that time your cooking can be over (or you can stick some more twigs and lift the cone back again).
Boiling two cups of water, using the Caldera Ti-Tri as a wood gas stove. On this video, It took me around ten minutes , all-in-all, from ignition to rolling boil. Naturally, this timing varies a lot depending on the weather, the wood you use, the pot you use, the water temperature, etc. This test is on sea level, clear day, around low 80s, water temperature something on the 70s. I am using a Snow Peak Titanium Trek 700 pot.
