Re: FeatherFire

Stupid question, so to lower the heat you turn the knob tightening the band which cuts off air to the stove? (Assuming there are intake holes under the band).

Re: sewing kit

I carried one of those for years, and never had to use it in the field. Mine is a "Myers brand, Awl for All". Might be a little heavy for lightweight hiking but on the Bloodvein River in Manitoba it saved my buddies tuchas when his sling portage yoke let go. Just a few stitches that night from "Hoz ...

Re: FeatherFire

This stove looks amazing. But at 30 bucks I'm afraid I'd have to take a pass. Looking forward to your burn tests.

I realize there is no cheese without mold.But this weekend I had a sample of Brie at Costco where the mold was just too overpowering. If I can taste it, I want it scraped off!

Re: cheese

I have carried sharp cheddar wrapped in cheesecloth dipped in vinegar 3 weeks in the bush with no harm. The vinegar keeps any mold to a minimum and the cheesecloth soaks up any "leakage" that may occur. I also carry Gouda but usually have it first off, within 2-3 days. Asiago or Parmisano will last ...

Re: Hoz here

My caving days were in the 60's and 70's. I was "semi hardcore". Liked long endurance routes with plenty water to keep it interesting. We once spent 32 hours underground with only 3 hours for sleep. Saw some virgin cave in my time, helped map a large system in my home state. Bad knees now (probably ...

Hoz here

The Hoz is here. Over 30 years climbing, caving, camping and canoeing. I've had my physical infirmities, and I'm getting a little arthritic but I still love the outdoors. I build alcohol stoves for my own use and make my own gear when I can or it's cheaper. I built a wood strip canoe and also a deck...
