My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: 2cents on UVA/B protection
Check your focus. UVB rays are the burning rays (B for burning) and UVA rays are the aging rays (A for aging).

Re: Re: Re: mini bic source?
I like cricket lighters better than bics. I got a mini bic wet and it froze up on me at trips end. A cricket that got wet was working at two strikes after drying it off.

My cost of esbit, $4.50/12 tab box at Sportsman's warehouse, is 75 cents/ounce. And I need to add also that you did a great job with the article.
