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.

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...

MSR pump failure
I'm wondering if the collar that looks like is the broken part, was not seated properly and was loose. I don't use my more modern MSR stoves enough, to get enough trips on them to test for...

CA Drought and 2014 hiking season
I thought you were going to have a shuttle propelled by the ocean to get folks to the top. Like a ram pump that works off of slight fall in water to create pressure. Duane

I've checked a number of times on his well thought of stakes. They are still out. BP season must not be here. Duane

Re: Emigrant
Eric, I work in Carson City if we ever do something that car pooling would work. Go home to Plumas County on Friday. Shoot, I could kick in a cold six pack then for the gang if we raised the an...
