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: dry California forest
I've been wanting to do that on my property for years, but don't think I have enough fall across my acre. They can only do so much lift. I'll have to opt for a solar pump to pump wate...

Camp shoes
I lost a Croc in a stream crossing when one foot got stuck in a rock and when I pulled up, off it came and merrily floated away in the current. I even had the backstrap in place, just for that rea...

I had issues too, until I went with a different source and came up with the E Dunne Rd. Fewer points to check in my 5 hour drive. Still need to get a newer CA map in case I end up in downtown Fre...

MSR pump failure
I can see you not being confident in MSR then. They have sold tons of stoves and back all their equipment. If looking at similar type stoves, be aware some have a tiny filter somewhere in the fue...
