Re: Re: Cutting down a Ti pot
If a dremel tool will in fact work on the Ti then I'm on the case. I have cut a lot of metal with mine, just never tried Ti before. Delmar - "we don need no stinkin' lips!" ...

Re: Re: Sternum strap?

Cutting down a Ti pot
I've seen several post over the years here about people cutting down their Ti pots to make them smaller. I am interested in doing a Mod on one of my cook systems and was wondering what is neces...

Re: stealth camping does not always mean illegal
Ditto Paul. Either Ray Jardine coined the term, or that was the first time I ever heard it. In that context, which I'm going to assume was the "original" one, it meant cooking/eati...

Re: Good pot cozy video...also not bringing FBC food to the boil.
I had heard and more or less followed the "before-boiling" advice. If it is genuinely fully-dehydrated pre-finished food I think you don't need heat at all - it a all a question of ti...
