Re:2.2 ounce stove system
Since you gave a choice I was going to go with random gibberish, but decided on a comment instead.:P Perfect dirtbag hiker setup. Simple design, don't worry about dents, low budget. I like it.

Re:Pitching My Tarp Experiment :-)
Nice job on the tarp! Yes, a cantenary cut will cut down on those wrinkles, but you might want to lower the whole pitch a little (allowing you to use the front pole outside, freeing up your interio...

I hike in trail runners, so after a water crossing I usually just ring out my socks, pour out the water, and in a short while my feet are dry again. I got tired of changing footwear at every crossi...

Re:So now, it's 'super' gram weenie, eh?

Re:Super Gram Weenie
Travis, I generally make the SGW by request. It holds 3/4 ounce of fuel, so it is more than able to boil 16oz of water in a narrow pot. It's also a little taller which makes it a little more ti...

Trappers mug
Matt, I don't have a Trappers mug, but my guess is there would be a good bit of flame creep with the PRO. It would do the job, but probably not very efficiently. BTW, the stove in the pic ab...

When I decide to pack a hot breakfast I usually either pick up the MH eggs with bacon or ham and peppers. As one reviewer suggested, pour out the water before consuming. I usually prepare this dish as...

Mountain House Lasagna with Meat Sauce
When I grab a freeze dried dinner for an overnighter, the MH lasagna is my number one choice. I liked it when I started in '88 and still like it today.
