My Locale Seattle area
About Me Grew up camping and backpacking in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. Then went to the east coast for grad school...then job...then family. Twenty years later we were able to reach escape velocity from Washington DC and relocated the entire family to the PNW. I've fallen in love with the Cascades as much as the Rockies. And we spend 4 weeks every year in Montana near Glacier.

Re: The Evolution of a Winter Stove
Gordon, Using fibre glass cloth as a stove platform in the snow is brilliant! I've been looking for a light weight solution and that is it.
