About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: Why Isn't There an UL Alcohol Type Stove that Bruns White Gas?
First you have to realise that liquids don't burn, only vapor burns. If a liquid is below it's boiling point, only a small amount of vapor will be gven off. Alcohol has a low boiling poi...

The lid by itself weighs 68g. Knocking up a lid is not difficult, but it is one of those things which takes a technique/skill which you have to learn as you go. Persevere with patience as your fr...

Lid for MSR Quick Skillet
I do not understand why MSR do not sell a lid for either the Quick or Flex skillet as a lid would make both of these pans so much more versatile. I looked around for anything that could be used ...

Re: ditching the pot for a skillet

Re: Sourdough on the Trail?
I've not tried sourdough (I think it would take quite a bit of effort), but often make flatbread leavened with instant yeast. This requires minimal kneading and just 30 min to rise. With the do...

Re: Europe Hiking
My preferance is for the Pyrenees, I think they are less busy than the main Alps. It is fairly easy to get from Paris to the Pyrenees by train - Luchon, L'Hospitalet or Lourdes then bus to Gav...

Re: Inverted canister fuel use
Billy 1. If your canister contains 20-30% propane, then when you are priming the gas coming out will be 50-60% propane, so the answer is yes, if you do a lot of priming and not much cooking then...

Coleman Exponent Non-stick Cook Kit
At first glance this looks like just another anodised aluminium cook set, but on closer inspection you will find that these pots have a real standout feature. There is a spiral groove machined or stam...
