Re:Cylinder Stove Specs
Adam, I just made the same stove last week. I placed (5) 3/8" holes right below the feed door. As far as the door goes, I made that as large as the endplate would possibly allow so I wouldn...

RE:Exofficio quality
I have been a long time fan of the airstrip shirt. My oldest is about 6-7 years old and still going strong. Definitely worth the money.

ADK High Peaks
Bryce, Looks like you had a great time. I love the high peaks, but there aren't any bad trips to be found in the ADK region. When I go up there I love slowing down and keeping the mileage easy.

Mountain House Lasagna with Meat Sauce
