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.

Re: Still lost
Jon, I live at 3800', had great results with the modified Starlyte with the CC and .6L pot, slower than the 12-10 stove by about a minute, but used a noticable less amount of fuel on Saturday, ...

I can't get a boil in 8 minutes
Jon, I've used my 12-10 stove and I believe it was the same boil time roughly at home (3800') as at elevation, a little over 7 minutes, for 12oz Sierra temp water. The short Evernew .6L po...

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...
