About Me Hiking is something I kind of fell into to. I have always enjoyed camping both as a child and now as an adult. When my brother decided to take up hiking I noticed that all my friends enjoyed it too.

Thanks Roger! The stuff on my cook pots looks a lot like that plasti-dip stuff so now I'm wondering if I should just take it off and go the silicon route. Maybe I'll wait 'till they'...

Re: SnowPeak 600 Handle Insulators
