  1. NO HIKER LEFT BEHIND....Part One


    No Hiker Left Behind....

    There are strange things done in the winter sun by the folks who lurk the blaze.
    The AT trails could tell some tales to astonish and amaze.
    The New York parks can host queer larks but the queerest they ever did see

  5. wood burning campstoves

    As I gather the equipment for a possible 2014 SOBO I keep getting puzzled by stove choices. I've tried alcohol, Whisperlites, canister stoves etc. The only thing I haven't tried is the wood burning stoves. Anybody got any input on them? I even see one with a battery charger on it.
