Too many stove options-I need to focus.
You must cook a lot!! LOL! Nice! :)
Yeah really Jay - hungry much?
Nice starter collection, but you're missing a whole bunch of stoves there. Still, a pretty good core to build on.And every one of them is, and always will be, essential for . . . hmmmm.Well, it is nice to have all of them -- just in caseJRS
Jay,You definitely need to focus....or sell off some stoves.

What about a traildesigns Falk wood stove.....only 28 dollars!
Geez Jay, and I thought that I had alot of stoves......
No wood burning stoves for me- just to much collecting scraps after a long day of hiking and then to much (fiddle time) and then Dirty Hands-- No way Jose!!
You call that too much, Jay? LOL =p

It may help if you focus on the fuel first, deciding on what fuel is most advantageous for the majority of your trips.I got a simple small weekend or UL setup and I have a heavier setup good for anything including winter or a big meal with real food.I also have a lot of alcohol stoves that piled up over the years and I cant seem to part with them, an old Antigravity gear side burner signed by Tinman, an old Brasslite stove thats just beautifully constructed ect., problem is as far as Im concerned the Caldera cone system makes all predecessors a bit obsolete- its just works in real world conditions so much better.
Jay, If you'd just move the pots out of the way you'd see that there's PLENTY of room for more stoves in the picture!!! Focus looks fine, not a blurry stove in the lot!:-)
...and all he ever eats is gorp!
i'll drink to that (and help make another stove, and another, and another). hehe.i need to find something for winter. the iso is not so good and the white fuel is HEAVY.
I finally focused on clarity and chose two stoves out of my arsenal for the up-coming Backpacking season!!! First:BPL FireLite 550 --- 2.6 ozTi-Tripod pot stand -0.2 ozTi-Windscreen ---0.2 ozBottom of Red Bull Can-0.1 oz Total: 3.1 ozThis is a very small compact-easily used cook system that packs away great in my Golite Ion. The cook pot has little storage room for Esbit Tabs and miscellaneous gear. This cook system is excellent for a weekend adventure.Second:Heineken Can--------1.1 ozTi-Tripod pot stand-0.2 ozTi-Windscreen-------0.2 ozBottom of Red Bull Can-0.1oz Total: 1.6oz SUL!!This is also a excellent cook system. I personally think this is my best option for one reason and that is the storage capability of the Heineken Can. There is extra room for Esbit tabs and (little things) such as GU'S,fishing tackle, tea & coffee bags,ETC-ETC!! Oh did I mention that the cook system ways 1.6 OZ!!!!!!!! The Hienken Can System I feel is better for multi-day trips.-Jay

What? No Brasslite stove? No white gas? You won't have too many options until you get those.
Heineken Can ---- 1.1 ozMini Bull Pot Stand-0.8 ozCaldera Cone ---1.0 ozBottom of Red Bull Can-0.1 0z Total 3.0 oz
Excellent display and choice Rand!!! What is the name of that cook system at Trail Designs. I need to have some style too. One more stove could not hurt me??-Jay
> Excellent display and choice Rand!!! What is the name of that cook system at Trail Designs. I need to have some style too. One more stove could not hurt me??Why Jay....I believe you're referring to the "Caldera Keg - H" the exciting new stove system that is capturing the hearts of millions and taking the lightweight community by storm...even the most grizzled trail veterans feel their heart go pitty-pat when they gaze upon it.....:-)
