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.

Hexamid tarp With beak or without
You can angle the pole out a little, which lowers the front and moves it out, at the expense of less headroom on the ends. Up to you. I picked up a Solplex this winter, at my age I figured I want...

Tent geometry
Yeah, yeah, yeah. :) I tinkered a little, like my TT Squall, they work best on squared off ground. I messed with it a little, just a test to see how it all looked. Seemed easier to set up then ...

Quilt similar to Katabatic Gear
EE quilts are quite nice, I don't have a Katabatic to compare to nor have I poured over my EE quilt, looking for flaws or poor workmanship. Storage sack is very nice, that may be an indication...

Brass vs Aluminum Threads on Upright Canister Stoves
How many people are out more than a week or a few times a year? Bpers are a small minority, then subtract how many actually get out a bunch every year. Gear is going to last a life time then. Duane

Simple canister stoves in borderline temps
I used my canister stove this winter in negative F temps, I had rigged up a windscreen before the trip, mostly to prevent heat loss from the stove to the pot. Worked very well, had the fuel warmed...
