View Full Version : WooHoo! I finally got a TD Sidewinder!

So, I recently entered a contest going on over at Trail Groove and I won! The winning package was a 1.3L Evernew UL Ti cook pot with a matching Trail Designs Sidewinder Ti-Tri cooking system! I have wanted one of these for quite a while, except for my 0.9L Evernew cook pot, so when I won this cook pot with the Sidewinder I was stoked!

Then to make things better, the guys at Trail Designs also threw in the entire Inferno set and a great Olympia granola bar! When I opened the box yesterday I was like a kid at Christmas!

I have wanted the Sidewinder Ti-Tri system simply due to the fact that it is optimized to be used with wood, alcohol or Esbit. So, it is a serious multi use kitchen set-up. I accidentally spilled some of my alcohol fuel and might not have enough to last the rest of the trip...that is fine, I can gather some wood! (Note, this has never happened to me though.)

Anyway, I am super excited about winning this set-up and just wanted to share. I did a write up over on my blog with a video too if anyone is interested:


Also, I would suggest anyone that hasn't yet, to head over to Trail Groove and check out the online magazine. It is a great magazine filled with beautifully taken pictures and great info on some nice gear. Here is the quick link to it:
