Hello, So I took a crack at an alcohol stove like this: Skurka Stove and am having trouble getting it to work. I light it, let it warm up for 30 seconds or so, set the pot on it and the flame...

Thanks everybody for your replies. I looked up Camelbak elixir, and it appears it just doesn't contain any sugars, so it doesn't give anything to microbes to eat and proliferate inside a wa...

Re: Re: Keeping bottles clean with energy drinks?
Thanks Tom, What's your technique to clean the wide-mouth bottle? Do you wipe it out, rinse, use an iodine or chlorine tablet?

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...
