Re: Re: Re: Re: Altitude vs. Cold for Canister Stoves
I'm running out the door, so I only have time for a short answer right now. Part of the issue is that not only does one have to be above the boiling point of the fuel for the fuel to vaporize,...

Re: Canister Thread Protection vs. Pot Protection

Re: Re: Altitude vs. Cold for Canister Stoves

Re: Re: Live dummies at Tarptent
Interesting factoid (think mailman from Cheers)....5' 8" is considered the ideal height for a male by many. Particularly by those who are 5' 8", the very most objective on that ve...

Re: Re: how cold can you use a liquid feed canister stove?
I see people on here saying that the canister inverted would be good to 0f, but I thought Roger Caffin has previously stated on other threads that a canister inverted is good to -14f? And that'...

Shortage of Butane BTU's
