I'm a Colorado guy who backpacked heavily in the late 90s and early 2000s (got a few thousand miles on me). Then marriage and kids. Now I'm getting back into it, and am not too interested in an 80lb load out for a 5 day trip. I lost a bit of equipment that went out on loan (including a whisperlite internationale stove). Also I'm gathering equipment for the kids.

The internet is terrible, there's all these pages and videos to watch on equipment, including alcohol stoves. Although I'm not necessarily going super light I'm not wanting to go stupid anymore.

Welcome!!!!!

For sure, the internet is loaded with stove makers and it all started back in 2005 on Whiteblaze.net. That's where Ridgerunner and I started.
