Re: Sterno jelled alcohol in a canister

The first time I EVER went backpacking, I carried a sterno stove..then I went to a propane canister stove. THEN I went to a "real" backpacking stove (Whisperlite). Now I use recycled drink cans in one form or another. :)

Re: White Box Stove Review

I've been using this stove now for the past three trips, and hope to use it again this weekend. Initially, I thought "hmm..seems kinda heavy", then I thumped myself on the head and thought "But, no pot stand is needed".

4th of July

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I (along with others) was able to backpack in the Holy Cross Wilderness with a good friend I have not seen in 6 mos. (He moved to Virginia..).

No fireworks, but we did have a campfire!
