    Two thoughts:
    1) Whatever pot you choose, make sure it's aluminum. A thin aluminum pot will diffuse heat better than a thick titanium one will due to aluminum's extraordinarily high heat...

    Good points on the BRS.

    As for fiddling with the Fancy Feast, I debated with myself about calling it that because I love how simple and fiddle free it is relative to other alcohol stoves. But,...

    I'll have to disagree strongly with this one. My BRS3000T is awesome, light, simple, cheap, and super wind sensitive and has some finicky flame issues when it's cold outside. My SnowPeak light max...

    Gosh. Sometimes essentially empty and under my legs. Sometimes next to me as an additional barrier to rain splatter or spin-drift under my tarp. Sometime in the vestibule of a tent that is to small...

    Don't give'em any ideas!!

    That being said, the summit of Denali would be more expensive and time consuming to remove . . . and, it's not nearly as ugly as that bus.

    And, if Krakauer didn't choose this story to write a book about it wouldn't have been an issue either. So, I guess that means the bus is only important because of the author, not so much the...

    Two people died and how many dozen rescues that were successful?


    That's the plan. The bus will be more accessible to more interested people without the associated dangers. And, as far as...

    Oh yay. Yeah, a loss. But geez, what an ugly piece of trash in the wilderness. I thought it was ugly, albeit kinda novel, in 1990 (yes before Chris McCandless). I can only imagine it now.

    I was impressed when Thermarest when they told me to sent in a 1979 original mattress that was finally delaminating and they sent me a new one!

    Do it. There is no time like the present. Tomorrow may never come. If you try today, and fail, there is always tomorrow. If you wait until tomorrow and then fail, you may have missed your chance....

    I thought they made it pretty clear in their ad. They're looking for someone with a strong social media presence. This isn't about good looking people or selling to the AT community. This is all...

    Oh, come on. Own it. ;-)

    I've been very successful buying cheap shiny folding foam windshield sun shades and cutting them to fit into all my car windows as blackout curtains. Then, I can sleep...

    This gimbal looks like it's designed for a coffee cup which is notably smaller in diameter, it think, than a 100 g isobutane canister leaving me to wonder how well it might work as a stove gimbal. ...

    The content and phrasing of a question can be super helpful in getting a useful response. In this case, what type of tarp? What type of lines? What poles? What have you tried and how exactly has...

    1) Most of them actually, other than that running can be good general fitness training.
    2) You seem to be focused on some FKT competition which is in no way what the OP is about. The OP is looking...

    I have to disagree on this one. Sure, run for training if it inspires you. But, many of the fastest thru-hike times in the past are people that were never runners, just hikers. We certainly have...

    Hike lots. Do as many overnights as you can manage carrying and using various gear options, combinations and systems, even if in your own back yard.

    It sure looks for real and sounds like a really fun idea. Of course, they're looking for hiking, drinking, social media professionals that will maximize their return on investment. I'll follow it.

    I see two problems:
