Re: The philisophy of lightweight backpacking?

zelph , I am at my brother's place in Oregon right now. It will take more than that. For one thing, I am on a pay-as-you-go basis. The highway was re-fenced and trenched, removing those two gates in the wire fence. I am not sure who to write, to restore the access to my property. It is Chief Mounta...

Re: The philisophy of lightweight backpacking?

zelph , There are grizzlys, mountain lions, and elk. I have seen a moose, bald eagles down on the prairie, and a golden eagle further up. The grizzly's are nicer than some people. My planned "homesite" looks right into Glacier National Park. There is a level place ready to build over at t...

Re: The philisophy of lightweight backpacking?

DarenN , ...a "brick board" is the size of a full sheet of plywood, only much thicker. It is used to bring in bricks, for the bricklayers. This one was fairly clean, abandoned, and became my "loft" in the college dorm. I have structural materials to build a small post-and-beam c...

Re: BudLyte Super Stove

I am "wintering" in Oregon. That windscreen is from Zelph. I cut the slot for the handle, that's all. The lid came with the Vargo 750 ml Sierra Cup. The Mountain Dew Super Stoves are made by Zelph: one stove for alcohol and one stove is for "white gas". These two Mountain Dew can...
