24.8g Liquid Feed Canister Stove

I didn't make this but I'm pretty sure it will pique the interest of the stovies here on this forum. It is a very well-crafted device.

Re: Goodwill Finds

Zelph -

What are you doing up in the U.P.? Heading out to the woods I hope! Keep me posted and I'll keep my GPS ready ; )

You comment on my ability to find the softgoods, but I could just as easily comment on how in awe I am of the hardgood finds you make at the thrift stores!

Goodwill Finds

I was back home visiting my folks this past weekend and hit up my favorite Goodwill.

Two pair Patagonia silkweight polypro tights $3 apiece
One set of REI rain pants (like new) $5

I don't even use rain pants but the deal was too good to not jump on.

Re: Heine Pot

I was being lazy ; ) I oughtta just give something like that a go. I probably don't need yet another cookpot, but it sure would look good to drop a couple more ounces off my SUL gearlist.

Heine Pot

Does anyone out there want to build me one of these for cheaper than Tinny sells them? I don't have the requisite safety can cutter. Unless anyone has a suggestion on cutting one myself w/o one of those tools.

Re: White Box Stove

I got my White Box out on the trail for the first time two weekends ago. My buddy had the Bushbuddy he'd gotten for x-mas along as well so it was like new toy fest for us. I made a couple cups of coffee, oatmeal and also boiled up a Lipton's Side on the Whitebox. One day it was really, really windy ...
