My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

Re: All-In-One Ti-Stake, Toothbrush, Spoon, Fork, ~5 Grams Each
Innovative idea! My question is how rigid the final setup is. Does the tubing really offer enough resistence to use the knife/fork for cutting?

Re: Ultralight Kelly / Storm / Volcano Kettle
Thanks for the support, Mike! Chris - I don't know exactly how thick the vessel itself is. The thickness wasn't listed by the Al bottle wholesaler I got the sample from and I don't ...

Re: Re: Re: Ultralight Kelly / Storm / Volcano Kettle
Argh - bad news. I got a message from the shop where I left the kettle saying that it was to thin to weld. That's pretty frustration considering the fact that I dropped it off three weeks ago...

Re: First Project - Cuben/Momentum Bivy

Re: Re: Ultralight Kelly / Storm / Volcano Kettle
Thanks, Mike. I think I'll definitely get it up in the G-spot once my prototype is finished and I've been able to run it through some tests. There sure seems to be more traffic there.

Re: RE: Improved Kelly Kettle
Thanks for the suggestions, Steve. I think you're absolutely right about about the capacity and the inner wall. I'm trying to find a container that's a bit larger with the same wall t...
