Re: Epi
Ian, Yep, they are auto now. You take off the cap, hold it to the thigh and push down, hopefully for 10 seconds. I was shaking so bad the first time I had to do it. The effects are scary - in ho...

Re: Is there anything more filling than cheese?
Cashews. I can only eat so much cheese before I feel like I need a gallon of water. But alas, I only get cashews when my youngest son is nowhere around me!

Re: Skillet? Fry Pan?
Ti fry pans should be avoided at all cost. They get red hot and burn very easily. HAA works better in a more even cooking. My less-than-2-cents-advice ;-)

Re: ditching the pot for a skillet
The MSR Quick Skillet is a good choice. It is deep with straight sides, and cooks evenly. I carry one in my car camping/cabin kit, along with the MSR Flex 3 pot system.

Re: How do you deal with disappointment?
The difference between how a man and a woman deal with it? Who knows. I whine, cry and whine some more, then I get on with life. You have to vent it!
