My Locale Sierra Nevada
About Me I am Co-Director, along with my wife - Phoebe, of the Athenian Wilderness Experience. We run courses in the summer to the Sierra Nevada and in the spring to the Cottonwood Mountains of Death Valley National Park. Our students take this course as a graduation requirement for the Athenian School, a small private school near Mt. Diablo State Park, California.

We also live part of the year at our house in Bishop, California. This provides us ample time to explore the mountains and desert near there.

BD "Intelligent" Circuitry
Thanks for the analysis. I was not aware of the "intelligent" circuitry issues with BD. I own a Tikka and a BD Polar Star, neither of which has those designs. I am just looking to take advantage...

Anybody have opinions on these three headlamps? Which provides the best light? Which provides more usable light for the weight? Which seems more "quality" in general?

Down Booties or bivi booties
Anyone know of a good maker of light booties for winter use around camp after skiing? I need to find a truly light pair to wear after I shed my skate boots on long tours. Something snow proof wit...

Thanks. I was mostly interested in the smallest canister available. I'm not really concerned with longevity or use/weight ratios. So, it sounds like the consensus is the SnowPeak 110.

Canister Fuel Dimensions
Has anyone compared the various fuel canisters available for lindal valve stoves (threaded)? I'm curious as to which is the most compact in its design. Thanks to all responders.
