My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Stoves and Weather Clarification
Dip the canister in water if necessary. When the water is heated some, dip in your pot to help a little if possible, making sure the bottom is clean of course. :) It will take a lot to over press...

Shape changer :)
Ivo "- does it frequently change its diameter depending upon the phase of the moon, the time of the day, or the ambient temperature?" Love it. :)

I had quite a bit of condensation in my Solplex about three weeks ago now. It had stopped raining, so my plan to hike up a local FS road went smoothly. No rain overnight, but lots of condensation...
