Remember the big G, little O, Cheerios commercials?  Well, here is my MSR model G (one of them) and a Optimus kerosene model 00 (one of them). :)  Along the PCT, north of Sierra City, CA last weekend.  The G heated the water for pasta and the 00 simmered it.  A few of my over 100 stoves now. Ouch!  Took the TS cap along, hard to do a selfie with the logo showing, my new ZPacks Solplex, second night in it.

Hey, Duane - always wanted to know how those cuben tents hold up for folks who aren't using one to thru-hike. Also noticed ya sprung for the carbon fiber poles. How're ya liking it so far? Started using their stuff sacks, zip pouches, and a pillow dry bag. Quality stuff and they've been nothing but friendly - even getting things shipped out in time to be packed along on weekend trips!

Eric, the bathtub floor is pretty slender, I have to line the edges with my clothes, etc., although my shoes and pants are part of my pillow.  You do have good room outside under the doors for a pack or muddy boots.  The one side is rolled back and tied.  We'll see how long the cuben lasts for waterproofness, I try to avoid folding it, just roll as much as I can.  Two packs also from ZPacks, this trip I used my new large Zero, could have gone with even a smaller capacity one, but I'd only shave half an oz. or whatever, it has space for a fall, weekend trip I think.

Thank you, home puter was running real slow this weekend, had to wait until I left town.  Up in the Bucks Lake Wilderness over the weekend with some out of town friends.  Saw 5 thru hikers, not on the UL side judging by their packs.  Water at Clear Crk Springs and the campsite along the trail just to the north of the springs.
