Re: 35 miles of day hikes in Olympic National Park...

I hope he shows up.

I am looking at the map.

I hiked the Sandy trail out from Lake Ozette, south to Rialto Beach.

Re: 35 miles of day hikes in Olympic National Park...

This is a particularly dangerous stretch of beaches, I survived, not without rescue of one member of our hiking party. I saw no ladders in place. I had one entire beach of rocks go roaring out with every wave and riaring in with every wave. In storm surge, far out in the ocean, bring enormous logs u...

Re: Titanium Windscreen

It is an option that is not so bad for a small windscreen to fit inside the cookware. For example, dutchwaregear sells 6" increments of 12" wide material and Titanium Goat sells 6" in multiples of 6" and 12" and 16" width in multiples of 12". I like the titanium windscreen I have. I was thinking I w...

Re: The StarLyte Alcohol Stove

My Super Stove cut-down pot support for "white gas" was big flames, if I removed the cookware pan.

If you try keroscene, do it outdoors on a non-flammable driveway, as I did.

Why doesn't "The Caldera Cone System" use the "standard" StarLyte w/lid? Why do they have the "simmer" StarLyte w/lid instead?

Re: StarLyte XL 4.5

My experience with the lid for the modified STARLYTE has been no alcohol fumes on my clothing or gear. No odor. Now, you will send the container as well: it has never leaked, or, allowed fumes. No odor. I hope you get this all together real soon. I am eager to try it. Not all of the West bans alcoho...

Re: StarLyte XL 4.5

I hope you put this up on your store, soon.

Did you know titanium sheeting can be spot-welded for a windscreen?

Re: StarLyte XL 4.5

I am so interested in that, especially if you have a lid.

My StarLytes w/lid fit in my pocket.

I am interested!

If it has a simmer, and, and fits cookware... it will be perfect.

Have a small wide-mouth water bottle. Keep the windscreen around it. How about that!
