About Me 35, male. Software Engineer living in downtown San Francisco.

I'm an intermediate/advanced backpacker. In excellent shape. Love the outdoors.

Avid fisherman. I always carry my rod with me when I am backpacking.

I've climbed Mount Shasta, hiked most of Yosemite, visited Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

I'm going to do a 4 week section hike of the PCT in 2013.

You could say I'm addicted.

I have a bunch of backpacking videos over at

Re: Re: Close encounters of the most scary and odoriferous kind

coals...
using your pot to hold the coals sounds like a reasonable idea. Though if there's is resin it's going to be tough to get it out of the pot. You could also dig a hole. What I did is t...

Fire under a silnylon tarp (Video)
