cleaning trail running shoes?
my montrail masai's are very nasty from my trip. does anyone have suggestions for cleaning them? i looked on montrails website but they only mention cleaning boots, not mostly mesh running shoes.

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
I love this little stove. It fits my SP Trek 700 pot perfectly and I was suprised to find it is very stable. I have had no issues with the rivet. It gets great looks when you pull it out.
