Don't try to bend the handles
John, the titanium handles would be very hard to "unbend," and you'd never get them back the way they were. To say nothing of them possibly breaking. Just get some WD-40, spray a wee ...

re: Colorado Suggestions
I don't mean to bring you down, Gordon, but your timing might suck. It's looking like this storm pattern could linger on till the end of the month. Right now the only place I see that isn&#...

Josh's carbon fiber lids
I want to give Josh Leavitt a big shout-out for the carbon lids he sells. I bought two of them, a #2 and a #4. These little guys are amazingly light and effective. I like the way you remove them vi...

re: REI
Matt, I've bought something at the store, then raced home and placed an online order before the computer caught on. I even used to be able to place two different online orders (log out, then lo...

Re: Why? if it ain't broke....

Water boil tests
Yesterday I tested the Relax-a-Fire to see if could be used to boil 2 cups of water. For the first test I placed a 23.5 gram chunk of fuel in a QiWiz Firefly wood stove. I figured that the stove wo...

Hilleberg Akto
