re: Bottom cap for a 110 g. canister
Good thinking, Bob. However, if you had 2 mini Bics, you could soak one in the water and use the other to light the stove. You could rotate them on a daily basis. We don't want our Bics to dry ...

re: Bottom cap for a 110 g. canister

Bottom cap for a 110 g. canister
There has been talk about warming a canister a bit by inverting it, pouring a little warm water into the concavity, and then placing a tight fitting cap on the bottom to keep the water from seeping...

re: more, by Coleman
Me too, Duane, Coleman came up with a pair of good stoves for sure. The F-1 Powerboost is my favorite simmer burner (albeit a bit heavy at ~6.oz.), and the F-1 Ultralight is pretty sweet too, excep...

Ten Buck DEUCES!
Mike, how about if Mags and I just drop by and pick them up at the source, and save the postage? I probably live just a mile or two from you. By the way, Steve Conway at McGuckin's said theyve ...

re: profane types..
Yeah, Bob, like those sexy candles that Victoria's Secret sells. I consider the MSR Pocket Rocket to be rather profane myself. Go easy on Duane, as he is a true stovie, which counts for a...

Yes, I bought 3 today at $10.99, with free shipping. You need to sign in (establish an account?) for the coupon code to work. On Feb. 26 I ordered 2 at about $15 each (I didn't know about the c...

GNP guide book
Duane, there aren't that many good books on GNP hiking, but probably the best is Erik Molvar's Falcon Guide--Hiking Glacier and Waterton Lakes NPs. Pick up a copy and read it cover to cover...

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...
