    The night you were at Spence, was that before or after the rains this weekend?

    When it comes to hard facts, such as the fixed locations of water sources, Guthook is like a map.

    But that would mean that white-gas stoves would also be banned, and I can't hardly believe they are intending to ban white-gas stoves.
