My Locale North East Ohio
About Me I'm an ARMY Veteran of 13.5 years. I spent the years mostly in combat oriented jobs, mainly Infantry, which gave me a chance to see the world. That was my introduction to backpacking of a sort. Through my Military career, I backpacked more than 10,000 miles. Now I go simply because I love it. I also mountain bike, rock climb, kayak, and do nature photography. I wouldn't call my self an ultra-lighter per say, but my base weight is just below 12 lbs.

Re: J-tree graphitti and other problems

Measurement markings on MLD 475 ml mug.
I've seen various methods posted on BPL for marking measurements on pots and mugs. I didn't have all the equipment that some used, so I modified my approach a little. I thought I'd shar...

Re: Bend in pot support.
Yes, I slightly bent the three horizontal sections to make it fit into the mug. It allowed me to put it in upside down while fully assembled which gave a little extra space for a larger fuel bottle...

There's so much ranting I could do here that I'd sound like a lunatic. Once when I was in dire straights financially, I worked briefly in a Walmart Photo Center. Never again. Slightly ch...

As noted in posts above, MG charges shipping on all sale items no matter how much the order total comes to. Normally not a problem, as they state it openly on their website. I've ordered pro...

My bareboxer works just fine. I agree that the locking mechanism is a bit of an overkill, but it's small enough to fit into my Deuter Speedlite 30 backpack and easily holds 3 days of food for m...

I figured out a while back that prices out west are usually higher than here in Ohio so the fact that I don't feel the discounts at STP are as deep as others do is a little moot. Some of the time,...
