My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Anything would burn
Seems to me, if any kind of metal pot is directly on coals, anything in the pot is going to burn or at least stick, except water. Do you mean placed over coals instead? In my early days until fir...

Thanks Roger. I'm still mulling over the whole switching to a quilt thing. It was starting to look like there would be no weight loss, but I have a silk liner anyway, so problem solved. Duane
