Re: That ain't no stinkin' "firepot"
There are NO titanium vendors near Boulder, only one ti geek that I know of. But you could try SeekOutside.com in Grand Junction, or even Josh Leavitt's dad of TitaniumGoat.com in Ogden, UT. Ei...

That ain't no stinkin' "firepot"

Re: More Winter Stoves becoming available

Hilleberg Akto
I agree that the Akto is a very strong and high quality 4-season solo tent. But I must add an anecdote to illustrate the what I feel is the tent's main weakness. In early October of '06 we wer...
