Re: Hybrid Cuben/Nylon Zero
Just got back from a trip up close to the boarder of Norway following the Bohusleden, kind of like the Swedish version of the AT. Excellent trip! Of course did some bushwacking too, planned the t...

Re: Re: Re: Lighter and (in my opinion) better

burn times
I went out into my backyard to test out one of my wax rolls, and it burned for 4:40, not bad for 5g. I am skeptical that cotton ball plus p. jelly burns for over 5 minutes. Anyone actually time i...
