    Thanks. I know Abisko to Nikkaluokta is crowded, but that area might be smarter than trying to cross Sarek solo on my first outing. I was thinking detours through valleys to Nallo, Vistas, or Tarfala...

    Great post Vandrafjäll. I suspect most people here know little of Sarek. But I have been planning a trip to the mountains of northern Sweden (Kungsleden, Padjelantaleden, and off-trail options around...

    It seems some people think this is how bear spray works so they spay it on their gear or themselves. In fact the opposite is true. Bears are attracted to bear spray. It seems they like spicy food. It...

    They are also having a problem with this in Isle Royale NP. There it is some of the inland lakes that are a problem so you always have Lake Superior to fall back on.

    PS. What pot are you using. Now I'm thinking you windscreen is outside the Emberlit? Also I'd hate to rob you of years of fun testing stoves!

    I'm a little confused about your system. The Emberlit is a collapsible steel twig stove. Are you using that as a pot stand for your Starlyte? If so I'm guessing you want a multi fuel system...

    I had a Eureka Timberline from probably 40 years ago (are they that old). The waterproof coating disintegrated years ago and it went to the great campground in the sky where all good tents go.

    Mine also has a removable strap. Never thought of using the sternum strap. With the pancake prime, me me is almost pocketable. The FF has an APSC lens, so still reasonably compact.
