So many stoves, I have to get them out.  This was only a few miles from home.  15F when I got home Sunday, 17 degrees warmer than Christmas Eve's bp trip.  Coleman 242C and 200 lanterns, Svea 105 stove.  Also, but not in report, Coleman 502 and Optimus 210.  I don't drink much beer, but I've had a hankering the last few weeks for one.  I'm a light summer drinker.

Seth, I usually leave the hat at home, due to cold conditions or don't want to get it dirty. :)  It lays on my coffee table in the middle of my living room, surrounded by drying gear or gear waiting to be packed up after and before trips.  I'm out most every weekend, just don't want to over whelm this topic area.  I have over 90 stoves now, so I have to get out to get some real life use out of them.  Sucks to just fire them up on my work bench all the time.  I go thru a couple gallons each of Coleman fuel and kerosene each year now. A gallon of Coleman fuel used to last 4-5 years when I only had my MSR Internationale stove.

With this year's light snow cover the Sierra are accessible. I was in the Pine Nuts near you  last week. It was so quiet it was unnerving. Great year for activities outside.

Thanks for sharing these pics, Duane! I'm glad to see you getting out this winter too, even if the snow is on the light side.

However, your comment about not wanting to get the hat dirty does not compute...

Alicia, Like my favored things, I want them to last, so they don't get used much, like the hat.  Not enough snow yet to get the Trailspace stickered snow shovel out, so no pics of it.  I only have a sticker on one fuel bottle, one on one of my vehicles and or course one of my bear cans.  Two spares by my puter, waiting to be stuck. :)
