My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Recommend me a disposal cylinder stove
I have a number of isobutane stoves. Have not used my Snow Peak GS-100 much, it runs well. I used my MSR Micro Rocket on my vacation last July. Really happy with it, boils 1.5 cups of Sierra wat...

David, when we do the NorCal Coleman Collectors Gathering, we take over a campground enough, that we actually see others coming over to see what we are doing. We are quiet, just have a gazillion l...

Thank you VERY much Dave. Eric was a good info source, but I'd try for lightest weight which would be the CR123A battery. I like the real world testing. In my checking last night, Amazon seem...

Headlamp, battery combo to read with in winter and maybe some summer usage
Not sure this has been covered, so hard to try to do a search here. Was looking at the Zebra Lights, but some negativity of made in China, which I try to avoid if I can. I had been looking at tho...

The New MSR Windboiler – First Look & Questions
But, but, HJ, how is one going to spend quality time with a stove if it boils water so fast. :) My MicroRocket is pretty fast. The Optimus 8/8R's, well, quality time there. Duane
