"He wants a Eureka Everest! tent...none of this namby pamby trekking pole tarp sh!?"

But what did he use on his recent trip where he was so comfortable in the morning he didn't want to get out of bed?. . .

I'm considering deleting this so you all have to go find something better to do.

He used a namby pamby fly creek UL 2.

I'm determined to convince him I'm right. I did compromise and will be ordering the TT Moment DW tomorrow...he won't know it's not really all that namby pamby 'cause it has a pole.

And David, please don't delete!! This is what distracts me from writing my notes at work!!!!!

Why not just move it to Chaff?

"Why not just move it to Chaff?"

Because Chaff was demoniacally and without notice moved from the recent thread list instead of Gear Swap.

I wonder how the Carbon Flame War is doing.

"WHAT???!?!??!"

When I click on the "Recent Threads" link in the sidebar, Chaff posts are no longer listed.

But at the top of the recent threads page is the following:

Forum Index » Recent Forum Theads

To view recently updated individual posts, please visit Recent Posts.
For Chaff (off topic) forum: Recent Chaff Posts | Recent Chaff Threads.

Edit:

In Forum Index » Recent Forum Theads" the misspelling is not mine. That is what the heading says :)

My standard backpack clothing has me wearing a synthetic t-shirt, then an ordinary thin long-sleeve shirt over that. When it gets cool, I pull on a zip-front fleece shirt. Then when it gets cold, I pull on my Mont Bell down inner jacket and then my 4-ounce hooded rain jacket. On rare occasions, I might carry a spare sythetic t-shirt, but that is only if I am going to be around people.

If I camp near a stream, I may rinse out one thin item so that it will be dry by morning.

My first ever canister on my first ever canister stove developed a leak in my backyard when i was *playing* with the new toy. Discharged its contents in less than a minute. Even though I'm an old geezer this did not really scare me or put me off using canister stoves. but I do check each new canister before I use it in the field, and I always replace the plastic cap after use. Since that first failure many moons ago, I have never had another problem, and to this day I consider canister stoves to be the safest option of any stove I have used. This after twice having older white gas stoves catch fire (one lit the forest duff around it and I barely got that fire out), once tipping over my alcohol stove, spilling fire all over, and more than once having a wood stove get out of hand. I have never had a problem with Esbit catching things on fire, but I find it fiddly to light, and keep lit, especially in high winds. For the safety and convenience, it is hard to beat modern canister stoves IMHO.

I bought a bunch from Travis. Ugly as sin but comfortable enough. They were in great shape, like they'd never been worn....
