My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

I use a 1.3 ltr evernew and depending on altitude it takes from 1.5 tabs to 2 tabs to bring a full pot to a boil.

Just make sure you place the handle of your pot opposite the feeder hole. For a 6 day trip I took some cotton balls smeared with petroleum jelly for fire starters. It's a great set up.
