Went 'shroom hunting with Daryl & Ryan Sunday... we went down by the river -- nothin' much there, then over to a place where I've been sworn not to tell where we did actually find some. Did a lot of hiking on yet another lovely day.
Set up the tent to measure the material for the rainfly. I have enough.
Also, friday night I built the Altoids alcohol stove. Indeed, boils water in 8 minutes (from about 55 degrees to 212 at 730 feet). We tested it. And the whole cooking system, minus fuel, and including pot and windscreen -- is 7.5 ounces. Wow.
Probably a little inefficent, though -- so I'm going to build the ion stove next..... it'll look cooler. Still, I appreciate the simplicity of the Altoids stove. Not that the ion one is complicated, it's just more complicated than the altoids one ... which isn't hard.
