Re: Re: Food vs petrochemical manufacturers
@ Dale- I would propose that one of your criticisms of S-L-X isn't really a criticism. You complain that it is 45% adulterants. But almost all of that adulterant is methanol, which for our p...

Re: Re: Re: Safest alcohol for stoves - US perspective
@ Greg- Well, the point that methanol lights easier in extreme cold probably IS true- it vaporizes at a lower temperature than does ethanol, and there is a lot of empirical experience on this fo...

I agree- probably an idiot. But on the other hand there are a hell of a lot more urban idiots who waste the time of the police and/or EMS, so why do the wilderness idiots deserve to be particularl...

Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide -Andrew Skurka book

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
