New groundhogs
Upon reading these posts I went downstairs and took another look at my 2014 Groundhogs. They are in fact just as Bob said--curved the full length of the stake. I guess I was a victim of an optical ...

Re: Snow Peak wind screen

Snow Peak wind screen
Bob, here is a link to a 4-year old thread regarding a titanium integrated wind screen that I made for my SP Giga stove. This sucker really works for me. It might give you some ideas... http://w...

re: Bottom cap for a 110 g. canister

re: Bottom cap for a 110 g. canister

re: more, by Coleman

Hilleberg Akto
I agree that the Akto is a very strong and high quality 4-season solo tent. But I must add an anecdote to illustrate the what I feel is the tent's main weakness. In early October of '06 we wer...
