My Locale Sunshine State
About Me Began hiking in the Carolinas, some in Virginia and now in Florida - much less variation in terrain, I'm sad to say, but beautiful in its own right. A Gatewood Cape w/Serenity is my primary solo shelter nowadays.

I'm also into kayaking & fishing.

Re: Re: Caldera + Esbit + Simmer
Yes, Tony, you are correct. I use either esbit or alcohol, depending on my mood for short trips. Experiment and go with what you enjoy. It's fun to play with both! Todd

Re: Thermawrap parka hood?
For me (Moderate-size head, I guess!), it would lose some loft over a helmet. Perfect though, w/just a cap.
