My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

WM Caribou - What's the practical temperature range?
I've had mine about 11 or 12 years now. Sometimes I'm cooler when temps are still in the 30's, so either did not stay hydrated enough during the day, or had a poor evening meal. I'...

WM Caribou - What's the practical temperature range?
I've had mine down to 26F and 28F-30F a few times too. At the unexpected 26F (dang weather forecast), I just pulled my jacket over my chest and was fine. Depending on temps, I may sleep with ...

Enough oxygen?
Maybe that stuff isn't designed for what you are trying to make it do. Duane

Stoves and Weather Clarification
Dip the canister in water if necessary. When the water is heated some, dip in your pot to help a little if possible, making sure the bottom is clean of course. :) It will take a lot to over press...
