I did 300 miles of hiking with this stove earlier in the year. Performed great most of the time but struggled with crappy wood, like waterlogged ponderosa pine. No surprise there.

I always pack it dry with a small washcloth between the stove and pot to keep it from rattling. Apparently I forgot when I stored it -- here's the aluminum pot three months later (the stove was fine);

Galvanic corrosion


P.S. anyone know if JB Weld would make a food-safe repair?
