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.

Never looked
I never gave them a thought. I'll do some looking. Bug net too? Would be cheaper too. Hmmm, on to something. Duane

Not helping me either!!!

for the fuel
I would use the bags just for the Esbit tabs and put the stove elsewhere. I need to rig up a Altoils tin or get the Gram Cracker stove. It's been so long since I used the Esbit stove, can'...
