My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Caldera Cone Awesomeness
I thought you had to be at least a former customer for them to send just a cone out, as they want to sell a kit that would include their 12-10 stove, at least what Rand told me in a email reply whe...

Better than a ZPacks Solplex?
I'm looking too, do not like opinions on the cuben floor though and second, the price. Aging, so debating whether another Hex tent K(really light) or SMD Deschutes tarp and Serenity net tent f...

Long Term Durability
I've had a WM Caribou 35F bag for about 10 years now, most bag nights of my WM bags. About the time I think it is getting cooler to sleep in it, it'll get my now 60 year old body thru a Zip...

New SMD tarp
Good point on the low to the ground set up. With me hitting 60 now, I like a little more protection for comfort. Where is that dang Sherpa!? I have the SMD Starlight, got a ZPacks Arc Blast la...

Jon, you had me crunching numbers again on this and the Serenity net tent vs the ZPacks Hexamid tent or Hex tarp and Serenity tent combo. I'm holding off on a decision, but need to move on som...

Packing with Dogs
After a good day, they will be less inclined to take off, but may find the energy to chase a easy target. :) I kept my dogs in my tent as I was more worried about them finding a porcupine or skunk...
