My Locale Luxury-Light Luke on the Llano Azul
About Me 75 years old. Started backpacking in the late 60's. Raced small sailboats for 20 years until I moved to Lake Tahoe in '83. Started backpacking again and upgraded my gear shaving 20lbs off my back. Began CARRYING A GOOD THING TOO FAR, a workshop for beginning backpackers in 1987. Hiking mostly in the northern Sierra, Lost Coast and Southern Cascades. Was introduced to lightweight backing by my friend and hiking partner, Donn Nibblett, and have experimented with alcohol stoves and, most lately, an ultralite titanium mulit-tool potty trowel.

Alcohol stoves. I carried them for two years and went back to a Snow Peak Giga GS100A stove. Now I always have hot water. Don't know why anyone would bother with a spork. No good as a for...

Re: Unwritten Rules of Backpacking with Buddies
Jay, I agree, farting in the woods is one very good reason to backpack in the first place.

Re: The Ramen thread: How do you like yours?
At home I crush it into small pieces and put it in a baggie with chicken bullion and some dehydrated, cooked, turkey. Sometimes I add some "Just Veggies", mixed freeze dried vegetables.

Re: Water - How hot is hot enough?
I shut off the stove when a rolling boil is achieved. Never had a problem in the past 40 years.

Keebler Fudge Peanut Butt. filled cookies (like Reese's)
These get my 5/5 rating also. They are absolutly a stealth food. If the others find out you've got them you'll have to share. Peanut Butter and Chocolate. The only thing better is more.
