My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

Re: HF
Thanks, Sam. :) So these are Versilic 27Ds? I would just check to make sure that they've actually been sent - there were three companies that took my order, only to send me something days la...

Re: spout for BCB
Just a note before everyone starts cutting up their stoppers - Amazon (and just about the entire rest of the world) is out of stock of the stoppers in this size. The company that makes them actuall...

Re: Wood Burning Stove with chimney
