My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

I quit using my MSR Whisperlight Universal 10 years ago because I got tired of singeing my eyebrows. Very heavy too. And the smell of white gas is very obnoxious.

Re: MSR Whisperlite Universal flame control question (Roger Caffin please read)
If you heat the stove up, then turn it off, then turn it back on and light it when it's still hot, that's how you generate a hair singeing flame ball. Why don't you just pump one or ...
