Re: vacuum sealer bags?

I have yet to see a vac bag that wasn't rated for submersion in boiling water - so as long as you buy the major brands don't worry, the whole 'boil in a bag' is a big selling point on them.

Re: vacuum sealer bags?

Sure! They work great. Use a office style paper clip to fold the bag over after adding water.

Re: trail chili

Ooh, years ago when I was vegan I made a chili recipe that had SO much chili powder it was beyond nasty. That was when I started questioning cookbooks. Whoever wrote that recipe had no taste buds I swear. It was so gross!

Re: if weight was less of an issue...

Yep you still can get those canisters - REI carries them. I see the Gaz stoves still being sold as well in outdoor shops. The only thing I didn't like is you can't take the canister off midway to make carrying easier if needed. Now if weight REALLY wasn't an issue...heck, I would be carrying the 2 b...

Re: lost my bag

Dare...

Re: if weight was less of an issue...

For the most part I carry a simple to use Primus canister stove that is nearly idiot proof to use. Why do I carry it over alcohol? For one thing I never have to worry about being in compliance with burn bans up high - some years alchy gets banned as being an 'open flame'.While I do use alcohol stove...
