I've been living in far northern CA for the last 8 years. I've been an active poster over at Backpackinlight.com for a long while. I see that Sam Haraldson is here. Any others that frequent BPL here?

I spend a little time there.....

Thanks for stopping by to say hello. Must be nice to be in a location where it's always warm :D John Abela(uberlighter) is in your neighborhood.

John's a good guy. Crazy for cuben. I'm loving my Starlyte. Took it out for a weekend in the Trinity Alps. Only had to fill it twice. You got a winner with that one. Katharina had her simmer version on that trip too. It's been so dry here. Usually it's been raining for a couple of weeks by now. Had frost this morning so change is coming.

We had freezing temps here in the midwest. Nice and crisp in the mornings.......that's when I fire up my wood burning stove to heat up the living room....nice way to start the day :D

I've been so busy making Fancee Feest stoves I've not been able to do any testing with the SimmerLyte version of the StarLyte. I got a feeling it's going to work really well under a 10cm Imusa Mug. I've made up a few dozen StarLyte stoves using the simmer burner. I've got so many combinations of pots, stoves and whatnots that it makes my head spin....don't know which way to go :lol: :lol:

I used to be a lifer at BPL, but recently accepted the refund.

Going to get back into hiking for fun, better photos, adventuring with friends, and real good food.

I also recently bought skateboarding made simple. It's not, but I haven't drawn my own blood in over two weeks.
I have learned basic moves like turning, stopping, rolling off curbs, grinding small ledges. It's a great way to meet neighbors and security guards.

Hats off to folks that can skateboard....looks like an accident ready to happen :mrgreen: Too many mishaps seen on Americas funniest home videos :D

What made you turn away from being a lifer at BPL and how do you go about getting the refund?

GROCERY STORES HATE THIS GUY

I'm getting a little tired of seeing the same ad over there. ;)

Ryan quietly updated the support page with a membership refund policy.
I felt like he didn't make a very good effort to fulfill what he offered when I signed up, and he refunded the money by paypal.

The new BPL ads are pretty bad for a "commercial" site.

I'll have to browse around and see if I can find it in the updated support page. Thanks

The add I see are worthless. I have opted out on all adds but still see them. Never will be able to get rid of them even when they give the option to "Opt out" :roll:
