My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: RE: How much of a concern is the camp view to you?
Some day, when the weather's real good, I'm going to camp overnight at that spot above McNeil Point, where there's a flat spot "carved" out of the rock. Nice sunset view. Ni...

Re: Re: Re: Well, that's interesting..
1 pint of water takes 3 minutes to boil on high. 1/4 ounce of fuel. so 8 ounce canister goes 96 minutes on high. So 60 minutes is about 2/3 used. approximately.
