My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

Re: Re: Like REI for independent gear - Boilerwerks, Suluk46, Enlightened Equipment
It's 2.21 oz, including the usb-rechargeable battery. What I like about it is that you can keep it charged by the computer for household stuff, and the charge last long enough for most normal t...

Rational Solo Fear
In July 2010, my sister and I were on the SHR in hiking a pass around Marion Peak. Crossing a small talus field, I dislodged a large-suitcase-sized boulder onto my left foot. It didn't hurt at ...
