My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

"Except 57% of people think it stands for Southern Pride. Darn stats don't agree with you, just ignore them and make up your own." I'm talking history, not what people believe

I have used Windmaster for a year or so. Works good. Good simmer. I think Soto stoves are a little higher quality. The igniter works fine. The regulator does not enable it to work at lower tem...
