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: Backcountry Boiler
Peter - thanks so much for the kind words! The Boiler was made with a precise goal: boil water for hiking meals with indigenous fuels and be the best at it. I think it does that, and I'm so gla...
