I spent yesterday into today (Cut short by and emergency doctors visit for my wife) in Monkton, Md. Right next to a state park, an area not used in the winter, reserved for youth summer camp. By time my tent was set (around noon) there was about 2 inches of snow/ice on the ground. The mess continued all night till it turned to rain in the morning of the 12/27/12 creating a mess. Bottom line is my BRS11 continues to light with the piezo lighter and run in top form. Even with burst of 30+ miles an hour wind thru out the night. I had to dump the rain out of the stove on a couple of occasions but it still fired up and remained lit in the wind. This stove has been well worth the cost, I us an IMUSA 40oz grease pot to boil my water in for cooking and I get 4 minute  boil time average for 32 oz cold water. I'm thinking about ordering one of the Fire Maple stoves, they are supposed to be better built. I will let you know what happen's, so far I'm very happy with this one. This was also the first trip for my 0 degree sleeping bag. I had a damp chill thru out the night because of the rain/freezing rain/sleet but was not cold.

Thanks for the photos, a nice looking stove!

The snow in your photo was a bonus for me, I live in coastal SC and we rarely have snow.

 I don't think my body or brain would know what to do. It is still really crisp here but nothing falling. I spent a bout a year in San Diego at the Coast Guard Station and loved it. Good people and good food. There were soom real nice hill's right behind the hotel were I spent a good bit of time after work.
