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.

To each the their own
I have ten Optimus 8/8R's and one Russian clone, run great after a good prime. I've read that the original 123/123R's made in Sweden are better quality than the new R's, made in Ch...

mini locks
Up to a few months ago, I was thinking like one of those oz. counters that cuts every little bit of extra webbing and line off. Wasn't until I ordered some line from GG that I read 50' was...

I wish my old MSR Rapidfire (pre-Windpro) had a fuel line like the Windpro or Windpro II, it's so dang stiff. I have a virgin Simmerlite I'll have to get out sometime, but having too much ...

If the demand is there.....
Per my look at their site just now, wait time has increased to five weeks for shelters and jackets. Joe must be doing something right. The hats are a little pricey though ($65), I prefer a less d...

Kill the computer?
Like sayings about kill you TV, I think I need to kill my rat hole of a computer to save myself from spending money. Of course not having a car payment or mortgage does nothing to stop getting new...

Extra line used when using line locks?
Those mini line locks are what I ordered for my new ZPacks shelter, thought I would give them a try, so dang light. I usually just poke my stake where I can, that was with my old TT Squall that I ...

Extra line used when using line locks?
Thank you all. John, you explained it best, maximum length. I'm not the best explaining/asking. My old KMart, $19.99 A-frame tent had those half moonish shaped aluminum things attached. Duane
