Re: BRS-3000T stove
Doggone it, they did it again (lowered the price). I had no choice but to order 3 more to get my cost basis down. All my hiking friends will get one next Christmas. I'm sure that since I pulled...

Take bear spray!
By all means, Duane, carry a small can of Counter Assault bear spray. You can't fly on a plane with it, so buy it in either Kalispell or at some gear store near the Park (MT has no sales tax, w...

Thanks, Dan

Re: Tri Wing Mod
Yes, Cliff, I have cloned several BGETs using Brian's instructions, and I do have some scraps of ti foil. I guess where I am getting hung up is with the wing stove's tab-to-pot distance in ...

Re: re: Tri Wing
